They will get some more in the women's 200 meter final. Don't forget the US is favored to win indoor volleyball for both men and women. So I say the US will get about 6 more gold which is what it got in 2008

I'm not sure where they stand at this very moment, ( Friday am ), but I heard yesterday they were ahead; don't know if it's true or not...................
Regardless of what happens, I'm totally happy ! They have done very well; so has China; considering the vast differences between their "system" and our's, I don't think a meaningful comparison is possible.
As others have noted, the Olympics is not about "which country wins the most medals"; it's about individual athletic accomplishment; (although some of the so-called "new sports" are a little "dorky" IMHO) (synchronized swimming anyone ?)
It's been a great games; London did great; I'm happy; now let's see what Russia can do in the winter games.
