If your doing math that way, Canada won :)
That would make China the big losers.

You lot won 20% of your medals in cycling events, and close to 50% when you add in rowing a boat, sailing and horse jumping (also known as equestrian) (:). You lot also won 14 of your 24 gold medals in these events.

Whereas, the US won 72 medals in track & field, swimming and gymnastics.

Yeah, real dominate.

Probably half those US golds then are actually silver, yes?
Imagine being one of those athletes who will always know that their medal was probably not deserved. Was only a gift of politicians.

Just remember that whoever wins, it is because the US was behind it and let you win. Give proper thanx.

Bagalia, it was the track and field events from which the Russians were universally banned. As it is they have picked up 4th rank in terms of medals won (thus far). As somebody else noted the US has done well in the areas where their main competition has been removed.

Steveboy, actually you are not far from the mark. The UK did not send its best team to deal with the terrorists in North America, they were busy with the Frenchies at the time and without direct French assistance it is unlikely that the terrorists would have gained the victory they sought,  they were not exactly doing well on their own behalf. But we don't make too big a fuss about that, the USAians don't get taught this stuff. :)

So how is it the British Olympians can do so well when up against the world yet the English football team are incapable of doing anything other than acting like over paid retards ?

Mentality , intelligence ?  :laugh:
