Finland was one of the most successful countries at the Olympic Games before World War II. At the 1924 Summer Olympics, Finland, a nation of only 3.2 million people at the time, placed second in the medal count behind the U.S.A. Perhaps most significantly, Finnish long-distance runners dominated the Olympics during the 1920s–30s. Paavo Nurmi won a total of nine Olympic gold medals between 1920 and 1928 and set 22 official world records between 1921 and 1931.
