As the Olympic games gather full speed, the USA and China are leading the race to be crowned overall Oylmpic champions.
The top two have won a host of medals across a range of sports, including the somewhat controversial victory of Shiwen Ye in the 400m individual medley which US coaches hinted may have been achieved with the help of banned substances.
Yet, while the US/China sporting battle rages on, British fans have been wondering just when they will start to see a member of Team GB bring home the gold.
On Scotland Tonight, Sports scientist Neil Macfarlane and former olympics 400m runner Brian Whittle discussed when Britain would be getting a gold.
Brian said: "It's incredibly difficult to win an Olympic medal and we're going on about how we haven't won any medals but there have been some excellent performances.
"We'll do well on rowing, we'll do well on cycling and we'll do well on sailing so we'll get a bucket load of medals in there and all will be right with the world."
Neil said: "For most of these events where we stand a chance the margins between winning and losing are minute.
"You can have a great perfomance, do what you expect to do, execute your race well and come third fourth fifth or like Mark Cavendish, 27th."
