The thought that came to mind was that during the cold war it was always U.S. and Soviet Union leading the medal count. What happened to Russia?
Then I looked further down the list: Ukraine -- 17, Belarus -- 11, Kazakhstan -- 8, etc
If all the countries that were apart of the old Soviet Union are added together it comes out at a whopping total of 104.
I guess as for the olympics it's a good thing those countries aren't all together anymore. Just a thought.
