World Cup or Olympics: which is bigger?

Just read that 204 countries participated at the London Olympics, the same number that goes into the grind for the football World Cup although 32 teams make it to the Finals.

There are all sorts of numbers that proponents of the World Cup are touting about in terms of television and revenue.

But Olympics for me shows wider mass appeal and equalitarian that people across so many disciplines all over the world get to share the world stage. That is more important than numbers.

What is your take?
