Why aren't the Olympics over yet?!?

Do you associate particular countries with certain sports?

Canada = Hockey? Lacrosse? Sculling?
England = Cricket? Darts? Horse racing?
Scotland = Golf?
United States = Baseball? Football(not soccer)? Basketball?

In your eyes: what country is synonymous with what sport?

Soccer? Long distance running? Gymnastics? Swimming? Diving? Weight lifting?
Skiing? Bob sledding? Pole vaulting? Jai Alai? Just to name a random few. . .

Australia has a pretty strong reputation in swimming in general - we tend to rock hardcore in the pool in the commonwelath games but we still do pretty well in the olympics, despite the sheer population of other countries kicking us in the gold medal categories...

I of course went for the obvious: Australian Rules Football.
God I used to love watching that!
