Why powerlifting not in Olympics?

Because Olympic Lifting (i.e. Snatch and C+J) are considered the lifting events of the Olympics. This can be considered unfair because swimming events in the Olympics can give out to 102 medals (34 of which are gold). Why not have more medals given for for lifting events? Especially that Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting are very different. A problem with Powerlifting being put into the Olympics would be the rules of competeing. Would gear be allowed? What kind of gear? How will each lift be judged? There are many Powerlifting federations all with their own unique set of guidelines. It would be hard to come up with guidelines that would make everyone happy. Also, Powerlifting is an event in the Paralympics.

What country is the most athletic?

Normally, the USA wins or china does these days. However percentage wise, Australia is the most atheltic. Theres another question on this somewhere on here which proves that. Overall, Kenya will be the country to be honoured given its ability to donate/sell/lose athletes to countries of the world such as USA, Qatar, among others and still scopes many medals in world athletic championships, Olympics and don't even mention marathons and cross-coutries. However, this might even be exaggerated when you focus more on middle and long distance races.

Did china win the 2008 Olympics?

China received the most gold medals at the 2008 Olympics, but not the most total medals. When a country hosts the Olympics, they have a chance to receive more medals (especially gold) as they qualify for more competitions. This helped China beat the US in the largest number of gold medals, but the US still pulled out with the most total medals. I only say this because the US almost always receives the most gold medals of any country at the Olympics. It also depends on if you decide who "wins" the Olympics by the number of total medals or the number of gold only.
