    Only winning 1 lousy bronze medal in a sport the US used to dominate. Ah well, maybe if they boxed underwater the US would do better. I half expect the US to push the IOC for some kind of stupid sport like that....similar to what they did with the winter Olympics, adding "sports" such as snow boarding which, of course, only the US is proficient at.

    China can just continue to rack up gold medals in the 10M air pistol and table tennis events instead. Nevermind that they train kids 16 hours a day to do it.

    Too bad we just can't just have an Olympics, consisting of Michael Phelps, some steroids, HGH, and the men's and woman's beach volleyball ..the US would win hands down.

    No one has complained about any of the "events" in the Olympics other than you when feeling the need to attack the US medal count.
