Every nation, broadcast network and news site on the planet has a way to keep track of the medal count at the Olympics. But why wade through all that other ancillary crap -- like stories of athletes overcoming adversity and political drama -- when all you care about is what nation has the most medals, and by extension is the greatest country on earth?
That's exactly what MedalCount.com gives you, thanks to the folks over at Animal. It not only lets you sort the medal standings based on rank, totals -- or even the breakdown of gold, silver and bronze -- it also lets you keep an eye on your four favourite countries at the top of the page. Did we also mention there's now a mobile version too? It's definitely worthy of a bookmark, at least for the next 11 days.
