Hahaha - American media is claiming that America is leading the Olympic Games



They are going by the total number of medals rather than the greatest number of golds. Tee hee. Desperation? Dishonesty?

If they are claiming to be leading the Olympic Games in the total number of medals. . . well, in that area, they ARE leading.:D

If someone wishes to say that Communist China is leading in gold medals. . . that, too, is true.:)

If one were to work out which country is winning the most medals proportionate to their population numbers. . . wouldn't that be Great Britain?;)
