Re: Rafachat - vol. 79. Worst Olympics ever - onto USO :rocker2:

with the Chinese, blame the Beijing OG.

As the host country has a team qualified in every discipline they started to conscientiously learn any sport they werent so proficient in. i suspect the results in some sports just show up 4 years later.

As about the focus on the gold medals, i can speculate that's a communist habit. It was the same in Romania before 1989. Even I can say about myself that it took me a lot of time to start to appreciate the other medals too

L'alma dell'alma mia,
Il cor del mio cor...
