    Thank you. It indeed came as quite a surprise.

    However what impresses me is the fabulous performance by the Norwegians in all fields, holding 10 more medals than the runner-up


    1. NOR Norway 37
    2. CAN Canada 27
    3. GER Germany 26
    4. USA United States 21
    5. NED Netherlands 18

    You may not be interested in War, but War is interested in You - Leon Trotski, June 1919.

      Indeed. Fantastic show. All three leaders have GOLD medals in at least 6 different categories which is impressive.

              I guess this is the moment to break out Canada's strategic maple syrup reserves. To offset some of sourness of the moment with pure Canadian sweetness...

                Some might argue that they had better 'asthma medication' (or at very least, more plentiful) than the rest...

                A point likely to be raised after the Olympics though. I personally hope that they would just ban asthma medication from the Olympic Games. And direct asthmatics into Paralympics.
