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.

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
