    China sucks at basketball, but they are good at table tennis and badminton.
    Weirdly, their men sucks at team sports but their women's basketball and volleyball are pretty good.

    Vietnam got its first gold medal in the 10m air pistol event. But that's not the real cause of celebration there, it's Vietnam beating China all the way to the gold.

    they decided that they don't need him.
    and as he has been living for some time in Croatia while playing for croatian clubs he received a citizenship as well. just before the OG he was approved by FINA that he can also play for our NT.

    Brasil just won against Serbia in waterpolo 6-5.
    that is almost like if aussies would win against US.
    a shocker.

    Exclamation

    Yes! Lietuva now needs revenge on the court! Coack Kazlauskas should impress that upon his charges.

    Xavi García was the best spanish player, but now there is some better players in his position. He talked with our coach and he decided to join the Croatian NT after that talk.

    he and Muguruza pulled out of the competition.
    but he is looking locked and ready. impressive performance so far considering he missed last two months of the season.

    Smart decision, he can win 2 golds (singles is complicated with Murray).
