Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Olympic coverage at Yahoo  internets was probably no less America-centered than at NBC. Eventually you could get to any results, but the front stories were all about American triumphs and dramas. There were surely pictures of Bolt as well, but also way too much beach-volleybal, softball and whining about scoring in gymnastics.

And of course, the medal count was the one that put USA on the top. I wonder if the gold vs all medals counts for China and USA were reversing in the middle of the games, they would had changed the ranking strategy as well. It is amusing to see winner-obsessed USA counting silvers and bronzes.
