Re: “It's not just about gold medals

Everyone else in the world ranks by Gold medals, including the IOC offical medal count. The problem with ranking by total medals is precisely that it devalues gold. Someone said it best that it is ludicrous that under a total medal count - a country with 100 bronze medals would be ranked higher than a country with 99 gold medals. Although fractions of a second may not seem like much to you, at a world class performance level the difference between gold and anything less is striking. Those media who made a big deal about the USA losing the gold medal race to China are correct. It is no "crock". The era of American sport dominance is ended and the Chinese have set the new athletic standard. That, is how the rest of the world will see it.
