  12. Not a big deal but, I notice that during TV coverage the races finish on the right side of the TV. I could be wrong, but in almost every previous Olympics Swimming event the swimmers finish on the left side of the TV. I know I won't affect the swimmers, but most TV viewers are familiar in finishing the race of the left side.
  13. I notice the list on Wikipedia is now different that was posted before. Some of the countries are now in different spots. Here is the link to the updated list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Summer_Olympics_Parade_of_Nations Kuwait (between Yemen and India) is now listed as the 'Independent Olympic Participants' and given the IOC code KUW

  18. The best finish by Argentina in a Winter Olympics was a 4th and 5th place finish during the 1928 4 man-bobsled. Not including Bobsled they never had a top 10 finish. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentina_at_the_1928_Winter_Olympics Their Men's hockey team. They lost to Mexcio 18-0. Can you manage if Argentina men's hockey played against Canada's Olympic Team. A Canadian team (not even close to an Olympic Team) beat Argentina 18-0, in the Pan American Ice Hockey Tournament. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Pan_American_Ice_Hockey_Tournament
