Did you know that the 'United States of Europe', EU to all those who might think it doesn't exist, have 98 medals so far as opposed to our nearest rival China with only 34 !
We probably have about half the number of population of China and twice the number of America .

Sea Lions verses Polar bears, no doubt. Penguins used as the bait, that's if the bears can get the transport arranged in time.

My money is on the Orcas for the water Volley Ball...

Last count as of last night: EU =116, USA = 44, China = 43.

Of course, the fact that the USA is only allowed to enter 1 team, and so is China, may have something to do with it. The EU is 27 countries, so 27 teams.

Think you could be onto something there ectophile.. Doesn't quite seem like a fair comparison.
