It is truly petty! These athletes bust their butts to get the chance to participate in the Olympics and from the way these articles are often written, they somehow failed because they didnt win a gold medal!

I'll bet none of the writers can say they were "Olympic" athletes, and maybe that affects their judgement in how they write the articles!

The fact that Ledecky didn't even medal is a first ever - therefore deserves to be highlighted. It is not showing disrespect, merely highlighting what is a pretty big shock.

How come Japan is racking in the medals so fast? Only two days into the Olympics they have already passed half the total of 2016 olympics.

Pretty stunning Gold for Ohashi Yui. Fantastic. Well done indeed!

About an hour after finishing the 200-meter freestyle, Ledecky held off teammate Erica Sullivan to win the metric mile in 15 minutes, 37.34 seconds.

Ledecky was a whopping 17 seconds off from her World Record, and nobody was that close

Not quite. The US has medals 30, China 24, and Japan 20. Japan and. China are tied for most golds at 11. The US has 10.
