Then why aren't you leading on the medal table? That post was really arrogant.

You are 4 golds behind China. If your judging on that then China is "the greatest country on earth".

china's more heavily weighted in the first week while we've got track in the second. duh.

if you're gonna hate, at least don't be so dense about it.

The 100m men's freestyle, holy **** what a finish. That is one time I can't wait to watch it on NBC. Got the best swimming commentators in the business.

Yep. Swimming shows that Dan Hicks has emotion, which you usually don't see when he does golf.

Speaking of which......will Hicks do golf in Rio 2016? Or will he continue to do swimming?
