    How are the points tallied?

    It appears as if they go by number of golds, then golds + silvers etc.

    I believe Canada was number one at the last winters because of our Golds.

    It's a pretty dumb contest because Michael Phelps can get like ten different, separate medals for one sport and those who play soccer can only ever get one.

    And in archery, there's team and individual events, so each archer can score multiple medals. Same with gymnastics and shooting.

    In other events, like soccer and basketball, only one medal is awarded, even though multiple athletes compete for it.

    Further, if you consider the number of athletes who are sent from each country, an advantage goes to the countries who send the most athletes (Australia, the U.S., the U.K., Brazil, etc.).

    If they really wanted to make a true comparison, they'd have to factor that in. In that case, there'd be "groups," such as Group A (countries with more than 100 members), etc.

    We're really going to say we "dominated" Israel, when they sent like 30 people to the Olympics? :jj:

    China will throw a fit unless they are ranked first, regardless of the medal count.

    we should hate ourselves for having so many medals.


    i hope obama apologizes to the world.

    it's the right thing to do.

    we're so mean. :bigcry:
