testing is mandatory a country cant just refuse... im just proud of australia and how we good competitors in a majority of events when most other successful nations have more people in 1 city than we do in our nation

it is from the olympics, but its a fake. i watched that event live :)
and for china... no surprise- since they are the most numerous nation, they have the biggest chance of having a talented sportsman among their ranks.

yeah, but only a hundredth of chinese athletes get the training opportunities an average american has. Most have no insurance, no proper gear, and no income. All those Chinese stories people hear about champions starting out by running in the friggin rice paddies without shoes, most of them are true (Not to mention pressure is much higher for a Chinese athlete surveiled by the Communist Party compared to your average american sportsman who only answers to his manager and his sponsor).

In a matter of discipline, the Chinese are boss (i'm american btw)

most of it is true, but chinese 'communism' isnt as harsh as before.
its only called communism, while in realty big companies and hardcore capitalism exist. they only mixed old ideals and some socialism with it, plus secret services and red stars for a good measure and voila- you get what china is today. a hybrid country with booming economy.

yeah, but most of these stories (and a whole lot in hong kong) are rags-to-riches stories. Look at Li ka shing or that Wing yip fellow, nearly all of them started as clercs or selling dumplings.

Teddy Wong had a small paint business from his parents. Imagine that.
