Yeah, that's just the Google medal table. Doesn't even let you sort by total.

Italy were the surprise team but it is looking like their sprint golds will be tainted by steroid allegations. The coach for the team has been arrested for dealing PEDs to athletes.

Japan was a surprise to me, but it was in Tokyo after all. ROC did well.

Strange that, these Asian countries always seem to do suspiciously well when they host a major sporting event that the world is watching.

Yeah funny. I also won't be surprised when Qatar advances to the round of 16 in 2022.

Australia did quite well considering our size. I'm guessing the majority of gold medals came from swimming.

You're right Matt, nearly all of them were for swimming. I saw one with a BMX bike and another with a skateboard, no idea what events they were - whatever they were they weren't around in the mid 70's when I first started watching the Olympics. Australia did well, equalling their previous best of 17 Golds.

Matt: That Australian swimmer gal totally dominated Ladecky. She's clearly the best in the world now.

Dennis: I think every home country wants to do well, especially the ones that don't usually do so. In that same sense, I bet they would performance way better than expect when it comes back to the USA.

Yes, I agree Warrior13, every host nation wants to do well even if they have to resort to cheating to progress. I saw a lot of that in the World Cup football in Japan/Korea in 2002 (Japan vs Spain) and the Boxing in particular in the Olympics in China and Korea.

In one gold medal bout during the Olympics in Seoul, Korea in 1988, even if the American Boxer (Roy Jones Jnr) had of knocked out the Korean he was still going to get a draw. Anyway, the Korean Boxer was so embarrassed by the decision he wanted to give the gold medal to the American, he literally got battered from pillar to post.

Yeah, for the most part, those competing have great pride for their countries. A little less these days because of the division amongst some, but still very much the same (especially for certain foreign countries).

Yes, who was the dictator who told his football team if they didn't bring back the world cup and make their country proud they can expect to do hard labour in prison camp for the rest of their lives when they returned home. I think it was North Korea, the team had no chance, bookies had them ranked 88th in the world. Then there was the Columbian player who missed a penalty in the World Cup and when he returned home was shot in a dive-by shooting.

That is a little crazy. lol

But all olympians should do their best and have love for their countries. Why else compete? Money? Just pick some professional sport instead if that is all you are after.

Apparently there's a big women's 100 metre race this weekend between the three Jamaican's girls, one of which got Olympic gold and the American girl who was favourite to win gold but got banned because of cannabis.

That American girl is said to be extremely fast. It's a shame she couldn't run, but those are the rules.

Shar Carrie Richardson is the American girls name. Apparently her fastest time this season if she replicated it in the Olympic final would have been good enough for the silver medal. I'm interested in seeing this race. It makes me laugh how other three Jamaican girls hate each other.

A lot of people thought she would medal if she hadn't been banned, but it is what it is. It would be good retribution if she can win this race.

Thiem, Federer, and Nadal are ALL OUT for the rest of the year with injury.

Federer's career is nearly over. Rafa must get over this foot issue asap, or his will be over too.

Serena is OUT of the US Open with the same injury that stopped her Wimbledon campaign. She doesn't play events that aren't GSs or lead-up tournaments, so when she plays in Australia, she's not going to have played tennis for 6 months, and will be over 40 years old.

Roger's career is almost over

Serena's career is almost over

Rafa's career is in serious jeopardy
