Yes, that is what I meant too... the Olympics is different, but I am thinking across all levels of major international tournaments, and not really feeling like the Olympics is more than just one component of the whole picture. Those who strongly feel that the Olympics are a very major component would have to put Finland right in with the rest. And indeed, they are better candidates than anybody else for an "upset" at other levels too IMHO.
