Owner of every single Olympic gold during 20 years born in 350 km/230 miles radius

For the 20-year period, from 2000 to 2020, the owner of the every single Olympic men’s water polo gold medal is born in a 350 kilometers or 230 miles radius. We had a good idea about this but it’s pretty fascinating to see this on the map.

Winning countries:

  • 2000 – Hungary
  • 2004 – Hungary
  • 2008 – Hungary
  • 2012 – Croatia
  • 2016 – Serbia

Birth places:

  • 15 from Budapest
  • 8 from Dubrovnik
  • 5 from Belgrade
  • 4 from Novi Sad
  • 2 each from Szeged, Rijeka, and Split
  • 1 each from Miskolc, Dunajská Streda, Eger, Szolnok, Nis, Zrenjanin, Makarska, Pula, and Kotor

Birth countries:

  • 20 from Hungary
  • 14 from Croatia
  • 11 from Serbia
  • 1 each from Slovakia and Montenegro

Just like how Southern California is the hub of water polo in the United States, Hungary, Serbia, and Croatia are the water polo hubs of the world. They must be doing something right there.
