It seems that the US will have a hard time to get number one again. 23 gold medals for China and 14 for the US. But we still have the Atletics to come...very few gold for China I am sure.
Some surprises: Slovakia (3 gold) and no medals (!!!) for Canada so far.
... and no medals (!!!) for Canada so far.
We're much better at winter Olympics, but it is a little ridiculous. Yeesh. If only they gave medals for 4th place...
Woke up to see Gold, Silver and Bronze won overnight. Nice!

New Zealand made up for things as well today by the way.

What on earth is happening to Team France? At time of writing, it's not even in the top 10...looks like it's going to fulfill its awful prophecy of slipping down the medal tally every Olympiad. (5th in Atlanta, 6th in Sydney, 7th in Athens and now, ? in Beijing).
Has anyone also noticed that Greece (the previous host) is performing way, way below expectations? At time of writing, it is ranked 46th with 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals...that's a far cry from its results in Athens 2004! So has Hellas lost its momentum?
Australia has edged above Great Britain to be in third place!
The Greece just don't know how to avoid getting caught after using dope
UK is doing above expectations!
