In 2006, the Olympic committee changed the way Gymnastic events were scored. And with that change, they basically drew a line in the history books, making it virtually impossible to compare any future performance with it's historical counterpart.It used to be so easy. The Perfect 10 was the aim of the game. 10.0. Simple.
How fast can a human possibly run? Recently, there has been much debate about it amongst sports fans, as well as scientists. Some believe that no one can run faster than 28 miles per hour, that’s because the man who can run that fast, is a six-time Olympic Gold medalist. His name is Usain Bolt (gottta love that last name), and he is also known as “The Fastest Man on Earth”.
From the very, very start of the Summer Olympic games, the one in Berlin in 1936, Team USA has just owned everyone in basketball, on both the men's and women's side. There have been 18 summer Olympics since that time, and Team USA men's basketball has won the gold 14 of those 18 times. That's about 78% of the time. After this Olympics in Rio, it'll undoubtedly be 15/19.
If there is one sport where American's consistently dominate at the Olympic Games it is swimming. Both the men's and women's teams have dominated the medal count since the 1984 Olympics and this year looks to be no different. In fact, the only time both teams didn't win the medal count was when the women lost to Australia by one medal in the 2004 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
