The most accomplished sporstmen or women they have

For example in Colombia they don't have a gold medalist but they got Mariana Pajon who's a BMX world champion

In Spain, Pau Gasol because he's one of our most accomplished sportsmen even if he hasn't won a gold medal at the Olympics.

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
