Only Good as Golds?

Here's a discussion that's been going on in our newsroom and I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. In the quest for Olympic domination, is it who wins the total medal count that matters or who wins the gold medal count? I say all medals matter - after all, you're among the top three in the world - even better if you have more than one person from your country among the top three! But others say it's being the best that proves you're the best. Still others suggest some sort of point system for each medal color, so that if you clean up on the silvers, you could still best a country that won a bunch of golds but nothing else. What do you think? And isn't this whole medal-count thing contrary to the Olympic spirit anyway?!
