I was listening to a discussion recently on the BBC regarding the London Olympics. The discussion centred around the view that when home nations do well there is a dip in future games.
The commentator was suggesting that while Team GB had exceeded expectations in London, this may not be sustained in the Rio games.
I thought I would check out the statememt and did a quick interactive visualisation of the number of medals won by each host nation since 1984. They may have a point, what do you think?
