Which country, can claim to be the best nation in the world at the Olympic games if it is not the United States.This enormous country has produced the greatest champions of the century since the re-launch of the games, from Ray Ewry to Carl Lewis, from Johnny Weissmuller to Matt Biondi and also Mark Spitz, without forgetting exceptional boxers, basketball players, cyclists... no discipline exists that hasn't, at one time or another, been graced by an American champion.This is, of course, in terms of the summer games, but the same is true of the winter games, in which the American athletes are just as impressive. There success is mainly concentrated in the disciplines of skiing and speed skating.Furthermore, the United states have given a great contribution to entrenching the Olympic movement, be it a case of paying for the journey for delegations, in view of the distance to be travelled, or indeed organising the games. This they have done four times: for the summer games (Saint Louis in 1904, Los Angeles in 1932 and 1984, Atlanta in 1996); as well as for the winter games (Lake Placid in 1932 and 1980, Squaw Valley in 1960 and the next games in Salt Lake City in 2002).
