At least, they're winning. This year, some countries finally won a gold medal or a medal for the very first time. Minding US' achievements, even though they already won enough, is just being full of it. If they don't like the number 36, give the medals to me and I'll sell them for UNICEF. comprende?

Dude, I'm not here to talk about olympics or which country is better.But anyway America never won and neither did china because theres no absolute way of ranking tables.If you didn't know there's 5 nations who top in no.1 in olympics.

No won wins the olympics!!!

Think about it,even with micheal phelps earning 8 gold medals for the men swimming team america is still end up with 36 gold medals.In the paralympics you would think the result would be different but it's still the same.Would you call this a coincidence?

Forgotten about the 2000/2004 Paralympics?

Usa achieved 36 golds in 2000 Paralympics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_Summer_Paralympics_medal_table

Ha! Usa achieved 27 golds in 2004 Paralympics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Summer_Paralympics_medal_table

So they didn't really won 36 golds 4 times in a row... if your talking about the Olympics and Paralympics overall...

I din't count in 2000/2004 Paralympics but still to win 36 gold 5 times just seem strange and creepy.I don't know any other countries with the same score in gold medals.
