Olympics website shows its bias

New, 6 comments

I don't care about the medal race that a lot of people and countries obsess about, as if winning Olympic medals somehow tells us something positive about that country (one could argue the opposite). Still, I found it odd that the medal table of the official Beijing 2008 website ranks countries based on the number of gold medals it has won. Of course, it's just a coincidence that China happens to lead in that category but is second in overall medals.
