Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think that the Chinese were targeting the real medal count, so it would always have been safest to rely on the WPS count.

I have no idea how long the US media has been using a faux medal count, since I was in Oz during the last three Olympics.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
