Default Olympics vs Football World Cup. Which is the more prestigious win?

These two events are unarguably the two greatest sporting events in the world. Which one do you guys think matters more than the other?

1. Being the number 1 Country in the Olympic Medal tally?

or

2. Wining the fifa world cup?

For me its wining the fifa world up. for me its because of two reasons, 1. the passion in fifa world cup is unparalleled to anything. 2. Olympic currently has only 2 Country which can win the medal table and even before China it only had two country still, its too one sided(or two sided!)

I dont get so emotionally attached with olympics to be honest. With FIFA WC, I go insane, get addicted to the tournament. FIFA WC is the greatest show on earth for a reason

I think its because olympics are more like individual glory and little bit less national glory. don't get me wrong. wining the gold medal and hearing your country's anthem..it doesn't get more prestigiously patriotic than this. but everyone remembers more bolt and less Jamaica. this is where fifa wc takes the cake

On sheer emotion, FIFA World Cup takes the cake.

But getting an Olympic gold medal makes you an immortal.

On a team/nation level, FIFA WC is more prestigious.

"Cricket World Cup" what are you guys on about. There is no satisfaction greater than being the best out of 10 nations.

youre comparing apples to oranges.

Olympics is less about country's medal count and more about individual glory. It's the pinnacle for a lot of athletics events like swimming, track, gymnastics, etc.

WC is all about country glory. Germany won the last world cup and thats all anyone remembers.
