In the Olympics, EU won 2-3 times as many medals as China and US. In the Paralympics, EU won 2-3 times as many medals as China and 5 times more than US. Compared per inhabitant China is far behind and US is slightly behind.
Now the interesting is when the media use this information. Will this trigger Euro-nationalistic feelings? The "We won" syndrome. Does this say anything about Several countries compared to Several states compared to One large country?
