Man!! You're losing in the medals ranking!!!!I can't believe you americans are fooling yourselves with this!! The gold medals that matters and China has
a lot more then you!!! China is the first in this olympic games and you know that. If the way of counting medals is like this my country, Brazil, will send an entire team just to get bronze medals hehehehe

Haha Marcos, China spent all that money to host the games, I guess we Americans better let them have the glory, no? :-P =Matt=

China will probably lead in gold medals for every Olympics from now until the end of time (or until they are banned for human rights atrocities).

Really? Really, Marcos? You hate America so much you are going to side with CHINA?

That's pretty sad, but have at it. Enjoy those civilian massacres and work camps, Genius.

It is sad to see a Brazilian trying to start a fight when they aren't even in the top five in total medals

Hey Marcos, Need a ride to the airport?

Brazil Sucks. Argentina Spanked them in the only sport they're good at - Soccer.

Marcos, go blow yourself, buddy. My wife is Brazilian and so were a few other girlfriends I had before her.

If I were you, I'd be out looking for a hot Brazilian chick instead of posting nationalistic nonsense to a foreign paper.

Argentina 3
Brazil 0

That's the only medal count that matters.

Marcos. You're a child with a keyboard. If gold medals are all that mattered, then what does it say for Brazil when you only have 1 gold medal from these games. You better hope 'debate' doesn't become an Olympic Sport...

Soccer: USA 1, Brazil 0.

USA: Soccer is just an occasional diversion, like croquet or horseshoes.
Brazil: They learn soccer before they learn to eat solid food.

But relax, Marcos, your country still has its ONE gold medal so far.
