>women's basketball is an olympic sport
For what purpose?
Women's basketball is a domestic meme sport only played by yanks while netball is actually international and competitive.
If you thought it was tough to host the Rio Olympics, you ain't seen nothing yet.
The upcoming Paralympic Games are suffering from abysmal ticket sales and a lack of sponsors, which is leading to major budget shortfalls and probable spending cuts.
>Just 12% of tickets have been sold for the September event, even though the majority are being offered for roughly $3 each.

Time and time again I see the Brazilians somehow beat the Olympics favorites and I can't believe it's a coincidence. In volleyball the Brazilians just beat the Olympic favorites, in pole vaulting somehow some third world shit beat a world renowned pole vault champion.

anyone still awake edition
Looking now, Scandinavians have big foreheads and their eyes are more sunk in the skull, leaving a shadow on them. Just a difference i've noticed from other white people like Germans and English.
>table tenis is an olimpic sport
>this is not
>Chile and Portugal no golds
>Argentina, Columbia only two golds
>USA, GB and China dominating
Is this proof that shit at football = good at the olympics and vice versa?
Average tier countries like Germany, France, Spain and Australia are also average at both
Brazil seem to be the exception to the rule, they are just shit at everything
Who is the ugliest Olympic athlete
>And why is it Maya (horse face) Dorado?
there is like a hundred uglier olympic athletes before she even comes to mind
You can only post in this thread if your country has ever received the Pierre de Coubertin Medal which represents the highest honour in the olympics and the most true olympic spirit surpassing even the gold medal
Hang a left and nail it!
Race starts at 1930 EST.
This shit won't even come close the greatness that was Watkins Glenn in the rain....
Hope the flex seal on the bottom line holds
The Truck race was decent, the old bump and run is sort of back
GOD SAVE OUR GRACIOUS QUEEN
LONG LIVE OUR NOBLE QUEEN
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN
Worst than USA winning half of their medals from swimming.
Literally nobody cares about cycling until somebody wins a medal.
Hope China beats us.
Had to cheat too. So this entire country pours millions of resources into sport and ends up cheating to win at a fringe '''''''sport'''''' nobody gives a fuck about.
hopefully no one dies
Sad to see, Britain letting skinheads compete just to get one more gold medal
Talk about priorities....
Rowsellfu is bestfu
It's pretty amazing how much a bit of hair changes the way a person looks.
Germany vs Brazil... in Rio... where have we seen this before?
really makes you think
Ahh yes. Well done Germany well done Germany. You should great courage in the velodrome against Team GB which is truly an inspiration to us all and deserving of a gold medal....
Say my name
Apologize for robbing him Brazil. Next time just call the police and file a report for ******damages******
>bunch of athletes whose last names end in "-ić", with obvious Serb origins, compete for Croatia and get them medals

>most of the Croat media start beating dust how a "Croat" won a medal for Serbia
>his last name is not even Croatian, but of Czecho-Slovak origin

personally I don't think he was at fault for the collision but I thought it was a bit much when right after he popped a wheelie then performed a nazi salute and screamed at the top of his lungs "gas the gooks, race war now!
>Britain is still ahead of China
I can't tell a lie, it's a good feel.
>that one sport that you really get into during the Olympics and completely forget about for the next 4 years

Hard mode: It can't be a sport that your country is good at
Extreme mode: No death march
ITT: Post countries you want to see have long, healthy and successful careers.
