The Philippines my country has sucked for so long not a single gold since joining the Olympics only 2 silvers and a couple of bronzes to show in almost over 80yrs at the Olympics, I guess being a small country could be the reason but some small countries have actually won Golds, heck I saw the other day even Mongolia has 1 gold

Good thing for Croatia that Blanka Vlasic can't be defeated.

please add other countries that have failed during these games.
Armenia has 3 million people, and they got 5 medals. If you go by medals per capita they are either second or first in the world in front of Australia. What you said didn't make any sense.

100% of their medals have been bronze. What kind of message does that send to the Armenian youth..."Settle for third and be happy about it." Clearly, one of their athletes could have tried a little bit harder for gold. And yes, I realize that Armenia has a lot of medals per capita. They certainly didn't fail as much as India, the worst olympic country of all time

India's just not into Olympic sports. Look at France though for a country into sports their women are doing pretty poorly. 1 silver and 2 bronze? They should get their Security Council veto revoked.

This is the first Olympics where we[Armenia] came in looking optimistic and predicted winning 3 medals, instead, we went +2 on that. All-time, we've only won 3 medals, and we eclipsed that this year, ALONE. I fail to see how that is being a country that sucks.

As a Indian first off **** the guy who said they smelled damn India is a 3rd world country still developing and it is surprised they won a gold medal and cricket is their sport, put that in and they get a medal but its to long to play in a bracket tournament so yea they don't care about sports but in the big picture sports is the least of their concerns cut them some slack.

Mexico. Only one bronze medal. Not sure what the population of that country is, but they sure do suck at the Olympics.
