Sorry for taking so long, but Summer is finally approaching in the city of Blois!
After reviewing the Winter Games, Kendall and I quickly identified the shortcomings - too many events, 94 in fact. So this time, rather than trying to cover as many Olympic sports and events as possible, we narrowed it down to 41 events - with Swimming having the most (We felt this was appropriate considering the popularity of the sport. Another issue we found was the administrative burden of dealing with athlete names for all of the events. This has been removed. One thing athlete names did do, is refect the funding and popularity of a sport or an event in a nation - i.e. 5 athletics for a sport would sow higher funding than 1 or 0. Having 5 athletes would also increase the chance of winning, naturally. To still maintain this level of realism, for each sport, there is a funding slider, so depending on the popularity of the sport in your country, please select an appropriate value, which will increase the prominence of your country in that support. Please do not though, that if you select 5 for all 10 sports, you will not be winning everything
