Olympic Games: And the winner is...

And the winner is... – Nicolas Vadot
L’Echo (Brussels)

While Jamaican Usain Bolt scooped the title as "the fastest man on Earth" at the London Olympics, some were amused to note who were the winners and losers among the eurozone countries. Comparing the success of the EU and US, the Europeans comfortablystrolled into first place, taking home 92 golds compared to 46 for the US. However, it is also interesting to note that the medal tally of euro member countries versus non-euro members, shows the credit crunch effect, with 41 golds for the eurozone compared to 51 for non eurozone members.
