I was elated to hear the news that my country was able to win a Silver Medal in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is the first medal after 20 years of having a medal-less Olympics participation. The last medal was courtesy of boxing in 1996. It's truly something to be happy about but I hope that my country will be able to win a gold also. How about you, are you happy with your Olympians?

I'm happy and proud for this Filipina who won the silver medal and learned that she'll be a millionaire when she came home with house and lot. Congrats to her.

I am also proud of her. She deserved her medal. We were really frustrated when she was not able to get any medal on the previous olympics. But now, she really made it.

I have seen that Switzerland has won 2 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze. My native country (Italy) 8 gold, 9 silver and 6 bronze, it's not too bad.

I think that my country is way behind in many areas of sports. Hopefully, in the next Olympics, a glimmer of hope can be seen with a bright gold. Thanks Anna for dropping by.

The US usually does well in the Olympics. I have yet to watch, though I have it all set on the DVR.

I don't think it matters the country they are from but I know that is what others enjoy when their country wins. I think its awesome to see winners no matter what country.
