    They did in 2008. They won the gold medal count. Everyone else in the world recognizes the gold medal count to determine the ranking, including IOC. But US obviously considers bronze medals to be equal to gold medals, thus place US first.

    Let me ask you, should a country with two bronze medals beat a country with one gold medal?

    Can't wait for the London 2012 Olympics!

    China failed to medal in the real true medal sports such as football, basketball, and track!

    China did beat Taiwan in baseball during the 2008 Olympic Games and the 2009 World Baseball Cup! Congratulations!!!

    The Chinese Olympics team had its best showing at the 2008 Beijing Games and led the gold medal count. They are improving on a steady basis and are being recognized as a country with powerful sports teams.

    You can get the medal results for other Olympics by simply entering the year into your favorite search engine.

    Good luck!

    Yes they did, the 2008 games.

    The Olympic committee doesn't think its about who comes first or last but there reposes is based on the number of gold medals won and not the overall number of medals won.

    The true table is shown at
