I too noticed how so many things seemed rushed, and there was less attention to nationalism. Made me think either yea, we are inevitably(force and circumstance) moving towards a singular civilization, or they were just trying to appeal to the shrinking attention span of the day, with rapid fire presentations, going all 'modern' on us.
Outside of the normal paranoia that's abound here at ATS. What's wrong with a single Global civilization? I mean the most popular Sci-fi books, TV shows and Movies show humanity achieving such lofty goals.
Also, Whats wrong with just highlighting the Athletes VS. which country they are from?
1. China 9 5 3 
2. United States 5 7 5 
3. France 3 1 3 
4. DPR Korea 3 - 1
