Now updated to include medals from Sochi 2014, as well as London 2012 which seems to have not been in my previous source. Apart from changes in the order, Latvia replaces East Germany as a correct answer.

Now updated to include medals from Rio de Janeiro 2016. The list of countries has not changed, but their order sometimes has. Also, the quiz is now showing Winter medals and total medals rather than Winter medals and Summer medals, making the percentages a tad more meaningful
