A Small Statistic

Mr Yuan Weiming, director of the State Sports General Administration (SSGA) of China, has done some sums.

He has worked out, and I have no idea how, that for each gold medal won at Athens; China spent around $40M to $100M investing in the training etc.

Wouldn't it have been easier, and cheaper, just to mine the gold instead?
