Channel 4 offers an alternative olympic medal tables. It is remarkable that in the table ordered by the population Bahamas is in the top of the list with 1 silver and 1 bronze having a population of 0.31 million. China falls to the 66th place, USA to the 45th and Rusia to the 36th.
Another possible table would be this one, where EU is the first!! xD
US ordering sorts the table by total numbers of medals, as many US networks, so they can be number 1... hahahaha... Must be humilliating to be number 2... xD
And finally a revealling video about the opening ceremony... FAKE FIREWORKS!!
