Did the cost of renting effect Commonwealth countries’ sporting performance?

Now that the Commonwealth games have come to an end, we have decided to  take a different approach to the results. Instead of ranking the participant countries in order of how many medals each won, we have organised it  by the international rent index* showing the number of medals won based on the cost of living of each one.
