Or in my own country, I remember the University of Washington Husky Crew who beat the pride of Nazy Germany in 1936.

I congratulate all the smaller, less well funded countries, simply for taking part. More important than winning any medals ;-)

Yes, be a sport. If you lose, there still next times to do better and raise the flag as champions.
