Those surging Slovaks!

The second edition of the official Yank in London modified Beijing Olympics medal table sees the Slovak Republic surge into a commanding lead thanks to gold medal from Michal Martikan in Men's canoeing. The Slovaks now have 1.47 points per million of population making it nearly impossible, already, to the US to ever take the lead. Azerbaijan has moved up to second and the Aussies into third forcing yesterday's leader Finland into fourth. The US did move up to 15th place; still behind Britain in 11th. Hosts China remain mired in 27th and India, being an incredibly populous country that isn't much good at anything beside cricket, sadly not an Olympic event, bring up the rear of the medal winning nations with a pathetic 0.004 points per million!

More to come!
