Athens (GA) Cleans Up in the Olympics

The folks over at The Atlantic's Cities blog have helpfully tallied the U.S. Olympic Team's medal haul by city. And right behind mega-cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco is a little college town in north Georgia called Athens. The write-up makes the point that college towns are often beacons for athletes in training, a fact borne out in the statistics. While Athens is no doubt enjoying its success in London, the fact that it was edged out by the home of the much-hated Florida Gators may rob the experience of some of its joy. [The Atlantic Cities]
