    • I was thinking it had something to do with fielding a sports team too. But India had a basketball team for the 1980 olympics, per Wikipedia.

      • I was going to guess field a World Cup Soccer team, but the D.R. Congo made it in ’74.

        • Drat. My reference material was in error and omitted the Congolese qualification in ’74. World Cup qualification (men’s) was the answer I was looking for.

          Props to Plinko for not only getting it right but double props for calling my mistake to light.

    • Can’t be, several countries are larger than a few of those nations and also have no Winter Games gold medals – Iran, Mexico, Turkey to name a few.
