Does anybody know a site that shows the medals achieved v the targets for that sport.

My rough calculations tells me that rowing is up, cycling is currently in the target area and swimming is well down.

This link is the overall target

You can find the targets per sport here...

However, you'll have to do the comparison yourself i'm afraid!

Let us know what you work out though, could be interesting.

We seem to be the best in the world in cycling and rowing at least.

BBC had an article today which estimates we are ahead of target and will get 54 - a 12% improvement. A table would have helped though

It is obvious that we can go no higher in the overall medal table unless a way can be found to improve our performance in swimming which, with forty-two medals available apparently, is massively overweighted as an Olympic sport.
