    Check out India's complete performance in field hockey in a very strong pool of sides at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. There were no British players in the side, and we beat Pakistan 1-0 in the finals. Epic!

    And what an epic fall from those heights to losing every single game of our group! I hear that is an Olympic record in itself. :facepalm:

    China has become incredibly competitive over the last decade or so. I saw this myself and was shocked at how disappointed the guy was after winning a silver medal. It was disgusting to watch. :facepalm:

    Saw the highlights, I found it hilarious.

    Tbf, though. The Chinese guy was world champion, and the british guy is an 18 year old who didn't even expect to win a medal. Different expectations lead to different emotions.

    This clip of Wu in an interview following his runner-up performance is going viral – and it’s no wonder. It shows the olympian overcome with emotion, crying into the arms of the reporter. Remember guys, he just won a Silver medal at the Olympics!

    According to Bloomberg, here’s part of what Wu said during the interview:
    “I’m ashamed for disgracing the motherland, the Chinese weightlifting team and all those who supported me. I’m sorry!”
    It’s terrible to see someone so torn up, feeling that they’ve shamed an entire nation. It’s even more unfortunate when it’s a medal winner who’s so disappointed.
