My country did ...... how could I say it..... what was expected.
7 gold medals and 13th place overall was a good result . Lower than projections, but accurate with the reality of the sport here - considering how poor sports incentives are in Brazil, and will continue to be.
Overall we got 19 medals, which is the highest ever for the country but only two medals better than London 2012, and that was dissapointing considering how well host countries tend to perform. We could get something around 23-26 medals
Our Olympic Committee had a top-10 finish as a goal, which was something too optimistic. So I´d say we did good. Not bad but not excellent either.

It seems that the President has cut the money sent for the athletes after the end of the Olympic Games. Despite the lack of investiment in some areas of the sport, the program was the highest value($) of this kind.
