Medal Count

28 Aug 2008

As everyone knows, the Beijing olympics is over and the medal counts are in. Who is on top? If you look at news agecies from China, Australia or Great Britain they will tell you the Chinese, who have the most gold medals. But if you look at the US Olympic coverage they will tell you USA is in first with the most Total medals. Now why can't the United States of America just do things like other countries?

Now, these olympics were great. I just about cried during the opening and closing ceremonies as well as when the Japanese won the Softball gold. What else can I say?
