Of course, we could also judge by medals per dollar spent on athletics by the national Olympic committees.

China Wins By Far

The dollar goes a much longer way in China.   Even the extravaganza you saw on Aug. 8 cost less than the opening ceremonies in either Greece or Doha.  Athlete training costs in China is very low.  Compared to that in the U.S., it is 1 to 1,000.

Can't really help it - China believes in small governments.  China's government expenditures are only about 18% of GDP, and it is ran with a surplus (compared to the 38% in the US and the $600 B deficit).  So the Chinese cannot afford too much on fluff like sports programs.  Infrastructure building has much high priority.  Most of the money spent so far in Beijing ensures another 30 years of sustained growth in the Beijing and adjacent economic regions (Tianjin, etc.).

How are the Singaporeans doing in the medals table?




Singapore?  You mean the "dot" on the world map?

Gee ... I didn't follow.

But okay, since I have the love for table-tennis, I can perhaps tell you a little about what happened to Singapore in this game.

Have to say, Singapore is doing exceedingly well in this game.  Heard also that Singapore beat flat the yankie teams.  The yanks were never to be seen in the medal matches (which I only watch ~~ where the best contest).

In the women's table tennis, Singapore in both team and individual matches were Gold Medalists

Singapore women's team contest was Gold Medalist minus 5 points.

Singapore individual women contest was also Gold Medalist minus 15 points.


Great, aren't they notwithstanding their not even visible in world map - what a far cry as compared to the vast land of the U S of America.

Somtimes, it's not too bad to like the Yanks way of giving Gold Medals to everyone.  


Yay, yay, Singapore gold  Singapore gold  Singapore gold  dot dot dot ....



[Btw, the participants were all Han Chinese]

Doh ... So, are you going to take responsibility for the way the Chinese in Singapore have treated others?

The racism there is well documented.

No, your twisted logic doesn't work.



That's what I was telling Mr Interesting ~~ that his "twisted logic" is not working at all

and just like all those who want to politicise the Olympics which is about sports and not politics or human rights.


Well, let me also say that it is "well-documented" how good you are at lying.

If only you had been truthful and be consistently truthful, we would have believed you.


Too bad, you LIE so consistently and fragrantly we just have to believe your LIES again and again.

Hahahha, are you stupid or what?? It's the chinese maskuline women that has won many gold!
27 gold medals!

and russian = Caucasoid race +
US = Caucasoid race +
EU = Caucasoid ra ...



Yeah, yeah .... I was, of course, "stupid"  by the yankie's twisted system and twisted standard ...

Is anyone spared from being STUPID when dealing with the retarded?

So, the Williams sisters are Caucasian ...

Ah, your Obama is also a Caucasian then.


Sometimes, I find it puzzling when you guys mentioned "black".  For example, you say Obama will be America's First "Black" President.  Black?  Should be "Caucasian", right?


Funny system and funny standard you have .... maybe, the magic word is "LOSER"

Keep up the loser mentality, please ! Stay there !
