The Sochi Medal Table Revisited – Redux#2

Another day, another dollar. Well, Russia does not like the US dollar so, for them, another day, another 5 Russian doping disqualifications from the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Please see details in my previous two posts on this topic for information about the two medal ranking systems – http://olympstats.com/2017/11/22/the-sochi-medal-table-revisited/ and http://olympstats.com/2017/11/24/the-sochi-medal-table-revisited-redux-1/

Here is what has happened to the first 10 places in the Sochi medal standings, as of today:

Original NOC G S B TM USRnk EuRnk
23-Feb-14 RUS 13 11 9 33 1 1
23-Feb-14 USA 9 7 12 28 2 4
23-Feb-14 NOR 11 5 10 26 3 2
23-Feb-14 CAN 10 10 5 25 4 3
23-Feb-14 NED 8 7 9 24 5 5

23-Feb-14 SWE 2 7 6 15 9 14
23-Feb-14 SUI 6 3 2 11 10 7

As of 27 November, Russia has dropped from 1st to 5th (US system) and 4th (International system).

Current NOC G S B TM USRnk EuRnk
27-Nov-17 USA 9 7 12 28 1 3
27-Nov-17 NOR 11 5 10 26 2 1
27-Nov-17 CAN 10 10 5 25 3 2
27-Nov-17 NED 8 7 9 24 4 5
27-Nov-17 RUS 9 5 8 22 5 4
27-Nov-17 GER 8 6 5 19 6 6
27-Nov-17 AUT 4 8 5 17 7 9
27-Nov-17 FRA 4 4 7 15 8 10
27-Nov-17 SWE 2 7 6 15 9 14
27-Nov-17 SUI 6 3 2 11 10 7

Again, please refer to my earlier posts, but here is what happens with perfect re-allocation, i.e., everybody in 4th moves up to bronze, bronze medalists move up to silver, etc. This is an idealized situation and very unlikely to happen in every case. If it did, Russia would actually move up to 2 bronze medals they did not receive originally. I sincerely doubt the IOC would allow that to happen, given the situation.
