As always, whenever someone makes a list about something, I immediately look to the bottom for the compelling news story. Or to make fun of the guy in last place. Whichever.

On the bottom of the medal count (meaning you had to win at least one medal, sorry Bhutan) is Mongolia. Judo superstar Khashbaatar Tsagaanbaatar took home the Bronze in the Men's 60kg (132 pound) judo competition. Congratulations Khashbaatar, for being third-best* at kicking the crap out of other little men!

*Actually, he tied for third-best, as judo appears to have no playoff for third, in what other sports aptly call the "Bronze medal game". Inexplicable. ben
