Canada did way better than 2012 so that's good. But we finish in 4th place and get bronze medals way too much. Our athletes are good but they are not the best.

USA, very proud of how my team did. Only thing I'm disappointed in is our women's soccer team getting knocked out in the quarterfinals, and then very disappointed in Hope's unsportsmanlike comments after the game. Also happy at how well Great Britain did, always happy to cheer for our friends across the pond

Oh, that's kinda what I thought but it's pretty sad imo, Brazil has a lot of talented athletes, they could use some support and focus :/

But yeah, Football is so big for this country, it pretty much takes all the place. Congrats on the gold too, btw !

Don't worry, it was expected to be honest, sports fan are extremely passionate in Brazil, and as you said they don't really know how Olympian sports work, it's okay, don't worry. In France we're not the best either when it comes to respect in stadiums to be honest. Well, in Football and Rugby, for the most part.

Great for you guys to have good rugby, field hockey,  handball leagues, and also LOTS of ATP-Level tennis competitions.

Those sports are seen just as pasttimes/recreation here. I really wanted people here to look to sports as a profession, as a market that generates jobs and entertainment. But that mentality will not change soon. Well... at least we can watch your - and other - leagues on the internet today.

France did very well in the Olympics, as always. Congratulations to all French athletes.

I'm Colombian, and since our government shows zero interest in any sport different than football, our people struggle really hard to get there, in my opinion, we were both better and worst, while we got 3 Golds (our national record), in total we got 8 medals (3G, 2S, 3B), the same as in London (1G, 3S, 4B), knowing the fact that people who won medal in London underperformed here. Aside everything, we expected just two golds which became reality (BMX and Triple Jump), the third one (Weightlifting) was a surprise.

I´d say that Colombia did much better than expected. It´s very hard for any country to confirm all gold medals expected, even when they´re just a few.

Colombian sports have been growing steadly since you guys hosted the South American Games in Medellin 2010. You even surpassed Argentina and Mexico in last year´s Pan Am Games and got some world titles in Track Cycling. Although the situation of investiment in olympic sports seems similar to what happens in my country, I think you guys must be doing something right ; ) 

By the way.... what happened to Jossimar Calvo Moreno ? He did so great last year in Pan Am´s and several World Cups, won medals with very high scores and couldn´t even qualifiy  to any  men´s individual finals in Gymnastics. I really really wanted him and Larduet from Cuba to perform well in Rio.



The US took names. First in every medal category.

Since that atrocious showing in London, I'd say we (Greece) did pretty good this time with 3 Golds, 1 Silver and 2 Bronzes.

True, when you want to do something in France, you usually can pretty easily. :/
Thank you, Brazil did well considering all this too. Let's hope these Olympic Games will help promoting sports in general !



Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are necessarily right.

Pretty decent, 4 Golds and 20th overall (according to Google)
