Ok first off all it should say silver sorry about that.

Second I don't think the total count is the right way to do it, there is a reason to give the athlets a gold, silver or bronze medal. And as hard as it is China is leading right know.

Besides the rest of the world doesn't do the total count. I don't think it's the right think to do from the (most) US media. What do you think?

People actually need a reality check if they do vote on "total". Well if it's not for other reasons for example, China's got more gold medals but less on overalls so it will make US look good on medal tally if it's ranked by total number.

And then for those people who vote on "total" I tell ya the reality is a gold medal usually means the athelete who wins gold medal did better than the rest and that being better doesn't mean being the same, so one gold medal doesn't equal a silver or bronze, get it?

I absolutely agree with you. Thank you. And I thought I wouldn't be patriotic enough LOL I wonder if the way yahoo, cnn, nbc and others count right now will change if the USA actually has the most gold medals
