People's Republic of China in Rio

Recommended Posts

So what's going on with China? Their medal haul doesn't seem to be up to snuff with what it has been for the past few Olympiads. At this stage (Wednesday of the Week 2), they are only one medal ahead of Britain (51-50), who have clearly benefited from London 2012. And they are well behind Team USA. Just a bad year?

I guess having all those venues/experience has not benefitted them long term........so much for national sports legacy as its related to hosting. And of course the frenzy and pressure to win is a couple games behind now so probably their training and development has fallen off since before 2008.
