Athens Beijing medals

Many anticipate that in Beijing the Chinese will take the throne of sports and top the medal table - maybe they will not win most medals but more gold than the US, as it seems likely from the Athens table. Only four out of the top 10 were EU countries. How will all the doping scandals affect the overall performance?
