The Olympics have always been a great way for athletes to showcase their skills.
But in the past year, there have been some new hurdles in the way of medal chances.
The 2016 Games were supposed to be the last one, with only two golds and one silver medal in Rio de Janeiro.
That changed in the lead-up to the opening ceremony.
So how does the Olympics compare to other sporting events?
It depends on the city, says Australian Olympic Committee spokesman Matthew Collins.

It’s not as easy as it sounds, he says.
“The IOC is aware of the issue,” he says, “but they’re still working through it.”
For example, the IOC had already announced a number of new restrictions on medal chances for Rio in the coming days.
But a few days before the opening ceremonies, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said it would give some of its sports the benefit of the doubt and open Olympic medals to anyone who had already qualified.
I think that’s a great move and I think the IOC is going to try to move in that direction,” Collins says.”
But it’s still a huge task to get medals for everyone in a city, and a lot of medals have already been awarded for people who have not qualified.

For example: Rio de Paulo has a population of 2.8 million and a total of 11 medals.
If you have qualified, you would need to do 5,600 practice sessions for a medal.
That would mean you would have to be in the running for every medal.
But the IOC says it will open up medals to all medal candidates.
If you’re looking for medal odds, you can search by city and sport for your sport.
For those of us who live in Melbourne, the city with the most medals is the National Olympic and Paralympic Committee (NOC), which has 11 medals to its name.
You’ll need to be a medalist for at least 12 games to qualify, but if you don’t have the necessary experience, it may take up to a year before you can earn a medal, Collins says, although he admits there are exceptions.
There are a few other things to consider, including whether you’re competing in an international event.
For example, if you compete in a World Cup or a Paralympics, your medal odds may not reflect your competition at the Games.
You can also use our medal search tool to find a medal from a range of other sports.
