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

And there are things you can admire even outside of the medals.

The U.S. vaulter who came in 4th or 5th, did a super vault and stuck the landing. But, then he cheered and congratulated everyone who came after him and surpassed him. It wasn’t just a minor congratulations either, it was warm and enthusiastic. I was proud he was on the u.s. team just for that.

The Korean’s vault was amazing.

Well I read some Americans on another forum complaining that NBC's neglect of the silver and bronze medalists was deplorable.

Even some gold medal winners!

It’s hard to know with NBC what they are going to show or not show. Sometimes they show something so obscure — where the U.S. isn’t even involved.

Did get to see the Romney horse tho.

Would liked to have known the price tag.
