Calm down. The US is going to clean up in golf, PUBG and the biathlon.

Well, there's also the Russians cheating at Basketball.

Pretty sure the US didn't win any in 1980. Just sayin'.

I don't think that counts as a failure to win so much as a failure to try.

The US also failed to medal at the 1940 Tokyo Olympics.

Well, except in Lake Placid.

Oh noes, we didn't win any medals, they have brought shame on our country, I don't know how I'll go on any more, everyone commit mass suicide right now so we can end this pain.

Or you could just wait until Simon Biles literally destroys the rest of the world in gymnastics.

A lot of the best athletes withdrew from this Olympics, so this shouldn't be a surprise.

We didn't even win "best snatch"?  We're a disgrace to the San Fernando Valley.

Yup, my first thought was that it doesn't bode well for the basketball team...

US didn't win any medals in the shooty events? huh.

Her snatch was fine. She just failed all three attempts at the clean and jerk.

Why the hell is Slade marching with the US?

They should be GB

And now the US has 10 medals.

That's not important, what people really want is the US athletes taking knees and raising fists against the Great Satan.

Pretty sure we didn't medal in 1980 at all....
