The battle of civilizations: Ethiopia has just run over China
China has 26 gold and Ethioipa has 1 Gold. We are 10^8 people, they are 1.5 X10^9. The population ration is, for one Ethiopian there are 150 chineese. As you can see the Gold medal ratio does not scale with the population ratio. If we were 1.5 X10^9, we would have had 150 Gold medals. According to my calculation the Ethiopian civilization is on top. This is before counting the diaspora athletes.
Ethiopia has given lots of athletes to Europe (the diaspora atheletes). One of them is Hewan Abebe, who ran agaist Dibaba for the 10000 Meter. Hewan Abebe lives in Turkey. Also Maryam Yusuf Jamal with former name Zenebech Tola, born and raised in AK's country.
