I am surprised by the difference between Australia and England in the medals table.It's not even been close.

India still hanging on to the 3rd spot.

I expect at least 3 Golds from India in.the next 2 days , so 1-3 order expected to remain this way till closing unless Canada does something dramatic.

England don't prioritize this event, especially when its on the other side of the world. They don't send their best or their best in their best form.

That explains partly.But I still believe Australia would have topped even if England had sent their best.

What best has England not sent? Their swimming team was at full strength while their cycling team was a mixture of experience and new gen. Betting their athletics team was the same. Can not speak for the less profile sports. You can bet anytime England is up against the old enemy she will always send her best troops.

England doesn't regard Australia as the old enemy. Only Australia see the relationship this way.
Their old enemy is Germany.
