How US count the medals

Well, no much news during the week except the Olympics. Weekend Sunrise is not on this morning hence no The Week It Was clip from Weekend Sunrise.

We all know that United States like to measure things in their units which is not international standards. They use Letter paper instead of A4, they use pounds instead of kilograms, ... etc. Until I saw the following clips on the news, I did not know that Americans also count/rank things differently.

There is a video clip from Seven News (Sydney) few days ago (14th August 2008). (Don: This is for you.)

QuickTime (H.264 clip)

Apparently most countries (including official Olympic website) rank the medal with the Gold first, just not the USA.

H.264QuickTime 7The video clip is encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rates. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video.
