Sally Jenkins writes for The Washington Post: “The phrase running around the Olympic Village on the last day of the London Games was, ‘If women were a country . . .’ The phrase will be one of the legacies of the fortnight, certainly more lasting than the British afterglow or the disposable-kit stadiums. There is no dismantling or dispelling what women did here: If they were a country, they would lead the medal chart.”
