Why chines is a number one u.s really number one because of they have many medal in every olympics.

Chine his good fighter sports kung fu and speeds athletes.

I am not a Chinese, but I must say that they are hosting the Olympic Games is the most profound impression of my life.
Chinese athletes also impressed me, the Chinese women's volleyball team in the Rio Olympic Games plaied the perfect!

2 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

To be honest U.S.A is real number one in greatest in Olympics ''not chines'' because u.s.a dominant in Olympic medal and PLAYERS of all time.

The US leads in gold, silver, bronze, and overall medals for the summer Olympics and all time medal counts. The US leads for medals in a number of sports and has the 2nd most gold, silver, and overall medals in the Winter Olympics. They win (have the most medals and gold medals) most years. Finally they're 3rd in bronze medals in the Olympics. The US also has the most decorated Olympic athlete ( overall and gold medals) of all time in Michael Phelps. Enough said the US dominates the world of sports.

Be honest guys put U.S.A in number one its really clear u.s.a is most medal top 1 in Olympic Games.

I have to be honest...
The US dominates in a lot of sports...

8 Great Britain

One of five countries to be present at every Summer Olympic Games, one of three to be present at every Summer and Winter games, and the only one to have won a gold at every Summer Games. Also the idea for the modern games were inspired by the Wenlock Olympian Games (In britain of course). - Chimpchomp

Around 4th on the all time summer medal and considering there's not a ski resort in the whole of the UK we do well for ourselves in the winter games!

South Korea (not the North (obviously)) is the best Asian country in the Winter Olympics. Don’t get confused. China is the master in the Summer Olympics (which Korea comes in the second), and Japan was the former champion. Now Japan really isn’t that good in the Olympics.

Not only in the Olympics though, South Korea is the Best Korea.
