Alternative Olympic Medal Tallies

So, heres' the current 2008 Olympic Medal Tally (via SMH). Interesting note that New York Times Medal table list countries by medal's won.

I'm quite interested in the adjusted medal tables. Here's two alternative tallies:

:: via Andrew Starr which ranks according to the number of medals won per 10 million of population.

:: the second, ranks by points (Gold = 3, Silver = 2, Bronze = 1) divided by Population (in millions)

I'm keen to see one adjusted by GDP (or by average per cent of GDP spent on sport). Here's the final GDP-Adjusted table from Athens 2004.
