    Er, no as the people on that list are just gay (like Tom Daley) and being gay is not the same as being transgendered and the issue with Caster Semanya is not sexual orientation which is why I took the view she might be/must be unique in this case.

    I enjoyed watching the divers, like the Canadian pair. In fact I am good at diving myself (but not in a pool)...

    A thrilling game of field hockey last night with Team GB winning gold in a penalty shoot-out. Not only a first gold in this event for the women, but two of the players -Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh are married to each other. I guess this would be like the Quarter-Back of the Chicago Bears being married to his Wide Receiver...?

    On a per capita basis, GB metal count thus far is quite impressive

    Impressive but Team GB is 19th in the overall table on a per capita basis (US is 40), and some would point out that Team GB brings together sporting talent from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that compete separately at the Commonwealth Games.
    Thus the top three (per capita) for all medals (so far) are Grenada, New Zealand and Jamaica; the bottom three are in order of shame India, the Philippines and Indonesia. I think at the London Olympics the Philippines, with a population of over 100 million managed to send 45 competitors, and I honesty don't think they care. In the specific case of Gold Medals, the top three are Bahamas, Jamaica and Croatia.

    This list has been compiled on a per capita basis and other indicators -

    I would refine the list with a minimum 10 metal requirement (a purely arbitrary threshold). You can make it 15 or 20 depending how you want to massage the outcome.
    Grenada's sole medal should not put them at the top of a per capita metals list simply due to their micro-tiny population. It's primary resourse are teaching hospitals for college students who couldn't gain acceptance to American medical schools.
