Olympic Medal Question

Does having more gold, silver, and bronze medals more important than having the most Golds?

Re: Olympic Medal Poll

I think its more about the country, population of that country and how many medals of all colors they got.

Putting Australia in the lead :P

Australia is doing great nonetheless. China and the US are doing quite poorly.

You do your best, and you get what you get. As long as you try your best and the judging is fair, I don't think it matters.

That's because one country is busy making guitars and the other is busy making 'replicas' of said guitars.

Re: Olympic Medal Poll

Is the Olympics on?

I tried to qualify earlier this year as a fencer, but they told me to piss off when I turned up with a roll of chicken wire, a hammer and a nailbag.

Rock on!

Re: Olympic Medal Poll

It was probably the nailbag, what did she look like? Maybe next time get one that looks more like Elle McPhereson; Australia is crawling with girls like that, right?

Re: Olympic Medal Poll

If only , but after the 20 beer skull (my proposed new event) they all look like Elle.

I'm hoping they let me compete in that event next Olympics. It's the best, even if you come last you still win.

Rock on!

I'm wearing my Speedo laser body suit right now while I practice my sweep picking.
