Olympic Shooting Results & Medals:

I think that it's all about over - apart from "the fat woman singing" - and the tables are being published so that we can all work-out just how many millions each medal has cost its respective nations tax-payers.

The 'Gold' medals - in this the 'Corrupt Age' - are of course NOT gold - as the last time real gold ones were handed-out was in 1912 ..  only the silver and bronze are genuine honest metal.

It's perhaps a little surprising that the United States shot below top - scoring only Fifth in the shooting sports - when you recall how infamous they are meant to be for firearms usage.

- Still it will be a small compensation for the US medal winners to get $25,000, $15,000, or $10,000 each - awarded from the US Olympic Committee. - Sadly they have to pay income tax on that cash - as well as on the medals value (Bronze valued at $4. - $600 for the plated one).

The great thing for us Kiwis is that we can count one Silver Medal for the Womans Trap Shooting - Well done Natalie Rooney.
