    Medals in 13 different sports.

    I love how Diving and Swimming got pretty much close to the best funding and no golds. Judo, shooting, Tennis got little to fuck all and we've gotten golds in it

    We'd be a head of America if Swimming didn't have 400,000 medals in it but hey-ho. Someone needs to at least try and catch China lol


    20th Gold too!

    Oh, and I saw this post on facebook

    After a bit of thought about gold medals, it got me wondering, "So China and the USA have more golds, but they also have more people, I guess that makes us a more talented nation". So, I took pencil to paper, and judging my mathematics are correct, I have a couple of statistics:

    As it stands tonight, gold medals are as follows: China are 1st with 31, USA are 2nd with 29 and GBR are 3rd with 18.

    The population of China is roughly 1,339,000,000. The population of the USA is roughly 314,000,000. And the population of the UK is around 60,000,000.

    Meaning, that for every person born in China, 1 in around 43 million of them will win a gold medal. In the USA, 1 in around 11 million will win a gold medal. And in the UK, 1 in around 3 million will win a gold medal.

    Even better still, going by the figures so far, this makes Great Britain roughly 3.6 times more talented than the USA, and a whopping 14.3 times more talented than China.

    Now that makes me very proud to be British!
    Well Netherlands roughly 17 million, and with 5 golds last night, that makes roughly 1 gold every 3.4 million people.

    So we still beat you
