Olympic medal share

Andy points out that the USA share of Olympic medals has dropped to 10%, and all-time low. He attributes the drop to Title IX, which crippled many college athletic programs like wrestling. It supposedly helped girls' athletics, but most of the female medalists got no Title IX benefit. Eg, at most one out of the 10-girl USA gymnastics team got any benefit.
