The Chinese has gotten themselves a Kechara wish fulfilling Chakras. I think the Chinese is going to be the big winner in this Olympics game. But of course, States is tough to deal with. Lets just see who is going to bring the most medals back to their country. :)

In statistical terms, GB has already beaten both USA and China. China has 20x the population of the UK, USA has 5x the population of the UK.
Currently looking at golds as it stands today:
The UK has more than half the number of gold medals of the USA, making their chances of winning a gold per member of the population more than twice that of the USA (and ten times that of China).
Per capita, the UK is easily the best sporting country in the world, USA is not bad, and China is actually very poor at sports indeed. Just being a big country and grabbing lots of medals doesn't cut it.

You can't look at it that way, India is almost same in population as China yet noen. It depends on the athlete, coaches and support, a lot have to go right for things to happen. And of course a little drug will go a long way though, but you got to konw how not to get caught or bribed the testers.

Just your opinion my friend. Many people would disagree with you. You guys are certainly amongst the most outspoken right up there with Americans.
