Romania was absolute trash at Rio 2016. Only 4 medals, 2 of which were bronze! For fuck's sake....

Hungarians kicked ass! Sorry, but I had too.

They really did. They have been better than us at the Olympics Games for a while now.  At least Romania has won another bronze medal! That' something I guess.

Italy made too many errors instead of capitalizing on the errors made by the Brazilians. The point wrongly assigned to Brazil both in the second and third set didn't help either



Alright games, good amount of Gold this time. Winter is hopefully better.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

The British media has certainly been boasting about beating China in the medal table, and how they were able to get more medals than 2012, but if you compare only the Gold medals, GB is actually down (27 vs 29).

Comparing the top 5 countries performances to 2012, the US received the same amount of Gold's (46), China is way down from 2012 (26 vs 38), Russia is down for obvious reasons (24 vs 19), and Germany increased (17 vs 11).

That was the 5th game against Germany on Maracanã, never lost one...

My post wasn't about Germany (I rooted for Brazil this time btw, I think winning a silver medal in this stadium is a great enough achievement for this promising German youth team), my post was about Maracanã.

Honest question, because I don't know: Has Brazil won a final before in this legendary stadium or is this the first time?

That's vey kind of you. Your team played a nice match, maybe except for the extra time, and was a bit unlucky with all the post shots. It could have gone your way and it would not be unfair.

So, all in all, the games were nice around here. Final wrapping thoughts?
