Dagens citat

"If you built four Bird's Nests (and China would probably be willing to do it, if the Icelanders asked politely), you could fit Iceland's 300 000 people with 64 000 seats to spare.
Put another way, when the 15 men of the handball team left for Beijing, 0.005 percent of the population departed. If you did an all-time per capita Summer Olympics medal table, Iceland's three medals would be one-quarter more than America's 2 177 pre-Beijing medals."
