Posted in: Rabid Japanese fans label athletes who don’t bring home a medal 'tax thieves' See in context

Another big challenge for Japan in the Olympics is that the two biggest sports here are baseball and soccer. Combined that with the fact that kids almost exclusively play a single sport year round, you lose out on alot of potential talent for the olympic sports due to soccer and especially baseball. Now to go one step further, its not unreasonable to assume that the best athletes more often than not end up playing the most popular sports .. they may not neccessarily thrive in baseball or soccer, but they will play them at the expense of an olympic sport, like say track and field.
