posted in: Grenada, Uncategorized | 0

Grenada, once again is Rio 2016 Olympic medal champion in medals per capita.

The nutmeg-producing island nation in the Lesser Antilles — population 106,825, took home all of one medal: Kirani James’s silver in the men’s 400-meter dash. But that was good enough to take home the per-capital medal title for the second straight Summer Olympics (James won gold in the 400 in London four years ago, as well). The Grenadians edged out the Bahamas, which won two medals, one for every 194,009 people.
