Right, but China has far surpassed the USA in gold. China doesn't care about second and third place, they want to be number one in gold and they are. As far as I'm concerned, I think we're doing fine. We are still ahead of the rest of the world.

I was listening to a report on NPR a few weeks ago. There was a guy who created a computer program that predicts who will win the most medals and who will win the most gold. His program has historically been 98% accurate. It predicted that US will win in medal count, but China will win in golds. The margin was just two golds though so the US could beat them according to his model.

Way to go, guys!!! That was a great race and a great Olympics for Michael Phelps. Haven't had much sleep this week, with the swimming and the gymnastics. Congrats to Nastia and Shawn, too, for going 1-2 in the women's all-around gymnastics.
