Does indoor track matter?

​Perhaps an even better indicator of indoor's relevance is how many Olympic medalists competed at world indoors. (Note: we're only counting the Olympic events that have world indoor counterparts.) 38 out of 72 Olympic medalists in those events did not even compete at world indoors. Curiously, out of the 34 Olympic medalists who did compete in Portland in March, a whopping 28 medaled! In these events, only Mutaz Essa Barshim, Jeff Henderson, Eliza McCartney, Tori Bowie, Thago Braz Da Silva, and the Jamaican's women's 4x400 medaled at the Olympics after competing at world indoors without medaling. Check out the full breakdown below.
