NOS is the number one channel for sports in the Netherlands. This summer you can watch the Summer Olympics on NOS, both within and outside the Netherlands.
Holland has a lot to fight for as their contestants travel to Rio to compete. In 2008 the contestants from the Netherlands ended up bringing home a total of 16 medals, whereof 7 were gold medals. As a consequence they ended up as the 12th best nation on the medal ranking in 2008.
In the Summer Olympics in London in 2012 they ended up as the 13th best nation. This time they got 20 medals in total, whereof six were gold medals. And it should be told that the ranking is based purely on amount of gold medals. If you for example compare Holland to Hungary (who ended up 10th) you will see that Holland got more medals, but since Hungary got eight gold medals they still got a higher medal ranking than the Netherlands.
