GPA Olympics

Post by Sven Shieldmaker on Fri Aug 05, 2016 3:31 am

DWFP's track and field team garnered 5 medals. Gold and bronze in the mens javelin, gold and silver in the mens hammer throw, and silver in the womens hammer throw. We failed to qualify in any running or jumping event. (since skis weren't an option).

The archery team grabbed three medals. Gold, silver, and bronze in womens archery. All shieldmaidens are issued a bow at 16. Men have an axe throwing team...but it wasn't an Olympic event.

We sent no teams in basketball (what?), volley ball (what?), boxing (with no shields??), badminton (what's this?), tennis (er, no), cycling (we don't have bikes), diving (the water wasn't cold enough) , equestrian (we have no horses), field hockey (like war, but axes not allowed), gymnastics (please...), golf (unknown in DWFP), handball (we just found out this is a sport), any martial art (they have too many rules), ping pong (too small), rugby (good open warfare, but we couldn't play without the severed head), shooting (no honor in shooting), rhythmic anything (meh), or trampoline (our team of 5 year olds wasn't allowed).

Our water polo team managed a bronze medal, admittedly more based on brutality than skill. We apologize again for the broken bones.

Every wrestler we sent was disqualified, apparently attempting to kill isn't the aim.

Our weightlifting team, in 15 mens/womens weight classes, managed one bronze in mens 94kg.

The DWFP soccer teams finished last. We had trained with axes, but they were disallowed.

In 47 swimming events, we only won a silver medal in the marathon swim.

In sailing, we were competitive in every event, but couldn't crack the top three in any event.

Our mens rowing team won gold in the 4 man and 8 man sculls, by wide margins. It would seem rowing longships is excellent practice. They rowed to the Olympics and now they have to row back home.

Final medal count: 5 gold, 4 silver, 4 bronze. Not too bad for a little nation.

What medals did other GPA nations win?

The Imperial Republic of Hungadada didn't do too bad. Hungadada's strengths lie mostly in the track part of Track and Field. 

Track:

Hungadadian athletes competed in the 100m, 200m, 800m, and 10,000m, the 4x100m and the 4x400m. 

Men's 100m Gold 
Men's 200m Bronze
Men's 800m Silver
Men's 10,000m Gold
Men's 4x100m Silver
Men's 4x400m Bronze

Women's 100m Gold
Women's 200m Silver
Women's 800m Gold
Women's 10,000m Bronze
Women's 4x100m Gold
Womens 4x400m Bronze

Total: 12 (5 gold, 3 silver, 4 bronze).

Hungadada is not too good in the field. Competing in Longjump, Pole vault, and Triple Jump, Hungadada managed to get 1 bronze for Women's Long jump. 

Total: 1 (1 bronze)

We did okay in swimming. Our swimmers competed in 100m breaststroke, and the 4x100m freestyle relay.

Men's 100m breaststroke: Bronze
Men's 4x100 freestyle relay: Silver

Women's 100m breaststroke: Silver
Women's 4x100m freestyle relay: Silver

Total: 4 (3 silver, 1 bronze)

Hungadada did not compete in any other events.

Total medal count: 17 (5 gold, 6 silver, 5 bronze)

Hungadada sends its regards and congratulations to all other nations who competed in the GPA Olympics.

And I am preparing for a TKR militarization by buying masses of soldiers and tanks

Well, I don't think anyone needs to militarize. As far as I know TKR is upping their military because there was a dispute between VE, TKR and Pantheon regarding a treaty. VE, TKR and Pantheon are the parties involved, so we don't have anything to worry about. 

Maybe spend cash (if you have it lying around) on infra or buying resources for stockpiling?

Good luck to all teams, but the teams with the most athletes have the biggest chance of winning more medals.

Teams with a larger population have a larger talent pool to choose from, thus they have more athletes. Richer countries also have more money to spend on training facilities. 
Those countries would have many athletes, thus have an advantage on the medal count table.
