I'm too far behind the paraolympics to keep up with it but I only missed the last few days of the Olympics before I left. To conclude then the US was first with a total of 103 medals, 35 of which were gold (mind boggling). China was second with 63 medals, 32 of which were gold. Actually Russia had more medals than China with a total of 92 but had less gold medals with 27.
Britain came 10th. We won 30 gold medals, 9 of which were gold. Kelly Holmes won a second gold meal and this time for the women's 1500m race. She did so well that on the closing ceremony she was chosen as the flag carrier.
