    I love my country and the effort it makes to break new ground . Politics aside, it's truly has it moments and this Olympics showed we may get knocked down and about. But we're never out . We find away to rise above and take up the fight until we get the victory be it Gold, Silver or Bronze.

    Interesting that you had so many more female than male medallists (164 vs 93).

    Congrats!
    I am happy for US too.
    Nothing makes me happy when US taking over no.1 spot from China on the final day.

    I usually don't like to talk politically, especially about China, but I read how their media and their people bullied their athletes when they didnt get the Gold and threat them as some kind of nation disgrace ...that kind of thing makes me hard to sympathize with them overall. And seems their government wants to make this Olympics as some kind of statement for their ambitions in world dominance.

    EDIT: Add to the worst of it that many of their fans has sent death threat to our athletes in IG when we beat them in Table Tennis (the category that they usually dominated).
    I was like "Seriously?? they went that far over a sport match??" .... So yeah I am glad that China did not win the Olympics.

    Hope this lost will humble them.

    You definitely should be proud of your skateboarders. I didn't get to watch the park events, but very impressive showings in the street event. Plus, sniping 3/4 medals of events that were pushed by the US is definitely good bragging rights.

    Yeah definitely! hehe
    Our first gold medalist is from skateboard after all..:)
    ...I never watch skateboard before until this Olympics and it makes me appreciate how fun this event really is.

    And Nishiya Momiji is only 13 years old when she won the gold. I definitely will look out nd check skateboards event more in the future.

    I feel sorry for the Paralympians as things seem to be getting worse re Covid in Japan. That country needs a break from major events while they are still in trouble and have a low vaccination rate combined with an old population.

    Paralympics in 'very difficult situation'
