    It's now official China will win the gold medal count. I take no particular joy in this but it doesn't hurt for America to eat a little humble pie once in awhile.

    The chinese practically grow athletes in petrie dishes. :D They take infants from their parents and send them to gymnastics and diving factories. NBC had a "human interest story" about how their top girl gymnast at one point considered escaping to get back to her parents. Then, when they're about ten years old, they give them a fake passport and put them in the olympics. There's NOTHING about this kind of dictatorship-sports that requires the US to be humble.

    Add to that, the big chinese influence (and now GIANT influence) of the chinese on the IOC to get junk "sport" chinese pastimes as olympic events, and it's clear where the medal count came from.

    And finally, I ask you again - where are you from? You are definitely not an american.
