And the Oplympics are back on. I don't know if anyone remembers that I do this, but here's my weighted ranking of medal winners so far. Gold=4, Silver=2, Bronze=1. With two days of competition in the books, the weighting is already being felt with Italy leapfrogging Australia; Russia getting ahead of Hungary; and Japan in front of Hungary, Great Britain and Sweden. The United States is in the lead whether you use total medals, gold medal count (with ties broken by silver total or bronze total if necessary) or my weighted score. I'm always torn about how to handle ties in my weighted system. Is accomplishing the score with the fewest medals exemplary since that means they're the more valuable medals, or is it better to have the most medals in total. At this point, this is really only an issue between Japan and Russia (yes, I know about Uzbekistan with its two bronzes and the eight nations, including the host nation, with one silver). Right now I'm going with the fewer, more valuable medals wins. Unless anyone can convince me to do it the other way.
