There are so many Brazilians in the city! Half of the people in our hotel have been from Brazil.

And you hear brazilian-portugues anywhere in the city. There´re so many of them. :)

Bronze Medal match: Japan 3 - 0 South Korea

The TV commentator just said that this match reminds him of the famous manga show "Attack No.1" (Mila Superstar in german) :lol:

The Brazilian TV commentators are commenting this might be the Olympics with more Brazilians supporters in the host city ever, surpassing by far Atlanta 1996

They also thinks there will be more Brazilians attending the venues in the next Summer Olympics... :P :P

Well, it will be 6 players and 15 thousand booing servers... hehehe

But it must be said: what a team USA have! Brazil played well bla bla bla, but team USA is also great if you get all the matches in the competition.

It's sad Volleyball is not a major sports in USA like it is in Brazil (our #2 sport or maybe #1 since soccer is doing badly lately).

The best moment was team Brazil and Brazilian crowd chanting USA USA USA recognizing the good team and effort from Americans. This is special.

And for 2016...

This will be the atmosphere...

There are some athletes in Brazil that deserved to be punched by the crowds in the airport.

The Male Brazilian Volleyball team deserves something similar.

RIDICULOUSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Winning by 2-0 in third set 22x20 and lose the medal!

GO **** THEMSELVES, FILHOS DA PUTA!!!

SILVER = SHAME!

Get this silver medal and put inside their ass!!!

----

In time: congratulations to Russians, watch a match, historic for them.

Celebrate!

The Russian must be proud of their team.

This is what we expect from a national team, to fight 'til the last second, the last point.

Not to give up because the opponent won a set...

Brazil must rethink lots of things in the mental preparation of our athletes...

We are really tired of "almosts"

Danny, what r u crying about? Your women won the GOLD; your guys came in 2nd! What more can you ask? Russian women came in like 5th or what? US men came in 5th. Give your guys credit. They played a great game. Sheesh!!

There's been only 2x time when the M & W of the same country (AND the host country at that) won both gold's. That was in the OLD Soviet Union for Mexico 1968 and, OK, Moscow 1980. And that's because the US did not participate; and the USSR was a totalitarian state. And it's NEVER happened again. These things go in cycles.

You lambasted your players early on; and now they bring in silver & gold; and u still can't give them a break. God, if all Brazilian fans are like you, I would be afraid to play for my home country come 2016. :ph34r:

These things are ONLY games, Danny. It's not like they dropped the ball in finding a cure for cancer, or AIDS or the Ebola virus. :rolleyes:

USSR also won in 68 both volleys.

The problem is not to win or lose, is how you lose...

The Brazilian team was pathetic in the last points of third set!!!

And we know how "metal power" works for Brazilians...

Everybody here at home said: "It's gone, it's silver..."

We have at least 10-12 similiar histories ONLY IN LONDON.

Losing "almost won" matches... Brazilians are tired.

____

Despite of this, we predicted 5-8 golds in London, because we had a reasonable number of World Champions, #1 in rankings as never.

Final Medal count: 3 golds (3 from underdogs) and NO FAVOURITE WON GOLD!

There is something really wrong with Brazil. Really wrong!
