Perception (addendum)

And one other media difference with the West: the Olympic medal count. On the Vancouver 2010 website, they list USA as the first place among winning countries, for having 8 total medals, 2 of them gold. Yet, on the TV broadcasts here in China, USA is ranked second place, trailing Switzerland’s (as of today) 3 gold medals.

This goes back to summer 2008. Which country came out on top? China had more gold medals, but USA had more overall. The debate goes on it seems..
