    But the olympics are over...

    China has over 4 times the population of the US, and they still have fewer medals. India has a higher population than China, and they have only 2 medals.

    Face it, the US is just better:p

    I knew that was coming well...

    The people from China are under extreme pressure, and only have a limited number of sports which they compete in, And for India they dont have much money put into their Olympians, and for training e.t.c

    However for Britain we have a lots of money put down for the Olympics and have the facilitates and expertise. USA have a big population, compete in a wide range of sport, and a fair bit of money.

    Derp lol. I looked up China's population (about 1.3 billion), found how many times larger than the US it is, wrote that down, then closed the tab. Then I said "I wonder about India?" So I looked that up (1.2 billion), and at that point I thought I remembered that China's population was 1.1 billion:p
    Thanks;)

    It would be fair for lands as India and Sri Lanka if sports as cricket would be added.
