If you look at the site, it may be a little misleading. The USSR and East Germany haven’t been around for many years. If you combine East Germany into Germany and all of the countries of the former USSR, you’ll have a very different number. I think that if the USSR was united today, there’s a good chance that they would have more medals than the USA.
Don’t get me wrong. I still love our country. As a matter of fact, I have a bet going on with a friend that the US will definitely have both, more gold medals and more medals than China this year at the Beijing Olympics.
