When searching something like "2014 Olympic medal count" return top 5 countries and their amount of medals, and then possibly a click to expand to see the full list. When searching something like "Olympic medal count" and it's not an Olympic year, return the most recent Olympic games medal counts. If the Olympic games are currently happening, return the actual medal count at the time of search for the live games.

We could do that, and then rather than a drop down (because that would clutter a bit much, in my opinion at least), a link to the Olympics website where a user can find the rest of those stats.

That's a good point about clutter, and I like your solution about linking to the rest of the stats better.

just like live scores and upcoming matches what we can do is that show the up coming Olympic schedule and if it is currently going on the live scores can be shown directly

Medal counts are different from live scores though, so I think this suggestion would be good to incorporate into general live sporting event updates, but not necessarily for medal counts. Medal counts are updated at the completion of matches / events, so it's more of a reference because current live scores of individual matches don't have immediate bearing on how many medals each country has at that moment. Plus this type of search applies not only to a current Olympic games if there is one going on currently, but also to prior Olympic games data.
