Actually reckoned by population size you didn't do that well. Check it out.

Compared to China, we did.



And at least we don't have to bundle up a bunch of different countries under the same flag to try and raise the grand total.

Brits always gotta act smug and superior, while drinking their tea and having crumpets.

They absolutely had to get their s**t together being the host city/country and all. We'll see if they return to their normal level in 4 years or so

Normal level like Beijing?

The host nation always sees about a 30% increase in medal count. And the last Olympics was London, where we owned. lol

China 51 gold

China - 1.3 Billion people
US - 0.3 Billion people

Or is that argument only relevant when you compare US medals to Great Britain ?

Shouldn't India be winning a ton of medals given that argument? 1.2 billion people and 0 gold medals.
