Several medal chances for the Scandinavian countries in Rio The four Scandinavian countries Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark all have good traditions in athletics and from a historic point of view we can without a doubt use the word "great" for Finland and Sweden. Finland is number five on the Olympic all-time-list regarding top-8-placings with 1299 points and Sweden is number six with 1212. The first four are USA, Germany, Great Britain and Soviet Union (which include Russia). 
The Scandinavian countries have a total population of just 28 million people but the medal chances are at least five - Finland's Antti Ruuskanen and Tero Pitkämäki in the javelin, Sweden's Michel Tornéus (long jump), Daniel Ståhl (discus) and Denmark's Sara Slott Petersen (400m hurdles).
 A preview for Sweden was published here http://www.runblogrun.com/2016/08/susanna-kallur-leads-swedish-team-...
