It’s not too late to join our Olympics game (but you will lose any points for Medals accumulated Friday, Saturday and Sunday). It looks like Japan has jumped out to a commanding start thanks to a number of Judo wins. The United States has medaled in a bunch of Swim events and China has medaled in a bunch of shooting and weightlifting events thus far.

To participate select four countries from the table below, staying under $100. Tell us your team in the comments section.

It’s a tight race between the current competitors. Mark is in the lead with 70 points, Pete is right behind him at 60 and Heath just barely behind in third at 56 points. It’s very early and a lot will change.

There are 339 events and around 50 medals have been handed out, we are just 15% of the way into a fun-filled two weeks of competition!
