WC/OG comparisons

Now that the WC's are over, does anyone have any data about how the USA's 10 golds, etc. stack up with other WC's and OG's? I don't think we did very well overall.

Thanks. That's 11 average, so we only did slightly worse than average. I'll take that considering the current gloom and doom atmosphere pervading USA T&F.

If they take away Kelli White's gold medals, we're down to 9, which is defintely below par, although it's not our worst showing by any means.
