This is how the EU Medal tracker is generated
The EU Medal tracker is generated for all Olympics fans by the agency Euro-Informationen in Berlin. Euro-Informationen is a content provider in the area of consumer-oriented communications.
For the EU Olympic Medal tracker we add up all the medals which have been won by the 27 European Union menber states at the Olympic Winter Games 2010 in Vancouver. We compare this result whith that of the teams of the other nations.
By the way: The comparison is of course not entirely fair. The 27 EU countries have much higher quota of starting positions than individual competing nations. The fictitious "EU team" has therefore a better chance to win medals than the other participating countries.
In order to comply with the Olympic ideal of fairness, we re-evaluate in a second list at the very bottom of our home page the Olympics results and compare the continents. We add up all the medals that have been won by the participating countries from one continent. The list below shows the allocation of countries to the continents.
