If you look at the medal tables the USA came out on top by number followed by China then Russia then the UK. If you look at it from Gold medals it was USA, China, UK then Russia. Well kudos to all the athletes you did your best and got your reward.
However lets look at the medal tables from a per head of population perspective. China has about 1.2 billion people, the USA a quarter of that, Russia one tenth and the UK one twentieth. So if you work it out then by this you get UK, Russia, USA and China the medal tally would have been if we all had Chinas population. Here’s the medal tally UK 1300, Russia 820, USA 416, China 87.
So this proves to me the UK won the Olympics and are number one by a clear margin and so in your face the rest of the World.
