Silja Lehtinen crew is fav to win in sailing. Destroyed all opponents at world champs couple weeks ago :) Only "sure" medal that we get. Oh, and she is super HOT.

I think USA might just pip China.

Although didn't some Australian report a while back predict Russia would win the most :confused: Which seems unlikely, reckon Russia will be 3rd.

China had a 15 Gold medal lead last time. I think they'll stay to this time but it will be much closer, seeing as USA has lost 2 dead certs in Baseball and Softball. :lol:

USA improves from 38 golds to 46 golds. China goes from 51 golds in 2008 to 38 golds.

USA is the only country with a total medal count in triple digits.

well, if you look at the overall medal count things remained stable with the usual suspects in the top 3. and you would expect countries with huge populations (especially china and usa) to win most of the medals, so i don't understand why are some people from there making a big deal out of this.

India is a country with a huge population and they won 6 medals with no golds. The population theory doesn't hold water.

india is the exception that proves the rule.

it might be added that rich countries also tend to do better than the poor ones.

i don't see where am i generalising. i said overall medal count, not just gold. overall medal count is fairly stable. and i do not even see this in a strictly statisitcal way either (population per medal). incidently australia is another example of exception that proves the rule but in the other direction. there are also other factors, such as that some sports are big in some big countries and those big countries can push them into the olympic program etc. i just don't see what so exciting about the race for the highest number of medals between 2 of the 3 countries with biggest populations in the world.

Do they guys just completely forget that USA is a huge country WITH lots of white and black people, which basically allows them to win medals in really lots of sport while Asian will always struggle to even medal in swimming (tho records are improving), track and fields and basketball? Can't we just be happy for both USA and China for doing so well?

The US killed the other countries but the women rocked with the medal count. The weirdest thing was that the Japanese women beach volleyball(think that was the sport) had to fly commercial while the men flew in business and first class. Who would have thought it in 2012. I'm truly shocked.

It was the Japanese women soccer team. They were "upgraded" from econony class to premium economy class (how nice)! And after this ...

they will likely fly home in economy class.

The Japanese women's team did really well, and actually played better in the final than they did in the World Cup final. It was disgraceful that they initially recieved unequal treatment with their male counterparts. Moreover,The woman's team is at the very peak of the women's game whereas the men's team clearly isnt. This was reflected in the silver for the women, as well as of course as being reigning world champions.

Great performance by Britain too, surpassing what was an already great Beijing performance.
