On the first three places in the medals table we see the three nations with also the most starters. The Netherlands with a clear first place with 40% of all medals and an impressive number of gold medals. Czech Republic second place, Germany with some distance third, due to his very succesful youth.
Two more nations should be mentioned: France with very strong men and women over 45 years and Australia: 5 starters from there with the the longest journey, coming home with 4 medals! Only Finland and the Netherlands have a similar rate of medals per participant.
