well getting silver isnt like getting bronze. its worst when you get get silver because it means you had a very close chance to get gold. bronze however is a also upseting but it isnt as close as silver.

silver is like saying you were the best loser....

Its somewhat true, the **** they do to little chinese kids for a ******* piece of metal. **** you china, **** you.

I seen a picture of a 50 year old looking dude, pressing his foot down against a 7 year old Chinese girls knees, till they are bent in a way that's preferable. She was crying hysterically, and the trainer just had the coldest look in his eyes..

Oh, and child abuse is common in China. Most kids there get beat simply because their parents had a ****** day.
User avatar #766 to #402 - fireonfire (08/13/2012) [-]
dude tell me about it. im indian and my parents beat different colors of **** out of me whenever they ******* wanted. im 19 right now and i still get threatened by my dad but if he touches me, i will kick his ******* ass. i dont know if i went through child abuse but i never deserved the treatment i was given. the worst part is, they pretend it never happened. So you can see why it kills me inside when I see kids being treated like animals.

In China small young athletes are trained to think that their mission in life is to defeat the westerners. So if say, an American got gold and the Chinese person got silver, that would feel pretty ****** .
#10 to #8 - anon (08/12/2012) [-]
No, xxvinnehxx, you're pretty accurate.
#14 to #8 - kelex (08/12/2012) [-]
And don't forget the fact that those athletes were separated from their parents since they were small, and weren't allowed to see their families for years.
User avatar #20 to #8 - skroll (08/12/2012) [-]
They're pissed off because if they get gold, their country buys them a house that they own for life, and they give them a very large pension, but also they bring dishonour to their famirys, and their children get hung from a tree in their garden.

Wouldn't they want to get silver so that they could leave China?

Oh yea my bad I forgot MaKayla Maroney really praised the lord and heavens after silver!!

Dude. It's a joke about China has to compete on the highest lvl. And it's a really old joke as well, it's getting used all the time. I don't understand why you would call me stupid for believing in it. Of course I don't. Now I'll say the same to you: Are you stupid enough to actually believe that I'm not joking?

Because china gets to go back to their handeler and explain why they only got silver as he beats them half to death

But seriously though, there are families that do nothing but train their children in countries such as China, Japan and Korea. In all fairness, to be the second best on the world at anything is goddamn amazing...

Just To be in the Olympics is amazing
User avatar #262 to #256 - Mattyowl (08/12/2012) [-]
The athletes from places like Tajikistan and Kuwait are probably ecstatic that they even get to go to the Olympics - and even a bronze medal would make them national hero overnight.
#113 - admiralaverage (08/12/2012) [-]
I actually find this really depressing, some people are so focused on winning that they forget about the bigger picture.
That they are near enough 2nd in the world at that point in time. get a medal is good enough which is what Tom Daley and the team showed.
It would be incredible just to take part in the olympics
User avatar #119 to #113 - jzpotter (08/12/2012) [-]
Exactly, you're still being considered one of your countries most elite swimmer, gymnast, etc. So either way, you're a big deal.
User avatar #130 to #113 - Bomard (08/12/2012) [-]
its mainly due to the fact that in china, they spend their life under training for a gold and because of how gold is so important to the govern or w/e, getting a silver means wasting all the training that you had. I know what you mean but its not that they are depressed for not being 1st, their depressed because knowing getting 2nd means they will no longer be supported by china ...
User avatar #80 - secondtimearound (08/12/2012) [-]
you want to know why?
many chinese contestants are from poor families. those with more talent than others are taken at a young age to come to rich cities in china, like shanghai, and train their whole lives for the olympics. if they get a gold medal, their family will be rewarded with a home-a nice home much better than the ones they own. THIS is a big deal to the chinese contestants....all the shame and pressure put onto them when they lose the gold medal is immense.

it's not like american contestants or british or any other country. these contestants are taken from their families not to see them again until the olympics pass.
they don't have a choice

What's the similarity between china and a priest?

They both came in a little behind

silver? behind?

That was very... humorous
User avatar #88 - richardastley (08/12/2012) [-]
People who are saying it's because they're from China are full of **** . It's a psychological thing that happens to most Olympic competitive athletes. If you get silver, you just barely didn't get the gold. If you get bronze, you at least got a medal unlike the guy behind you. This is especially effective in events that involve one team facing the other. The team that loses the gold medal game lost their final game. The team that wins the bronze medal game won their final game.
User avatar #89 to #88 - tvfreakuk (08/12/2012) [-]
Yeah... Because, it's not a joke at all. It's obvious that people actually seriously believe it's because they're Asian.

Tom Daley was so happy with his bronze because hes only 18 years old and hes had a rough year with his father dying. I believe hes extremely happy because of everything hes overcome and finally won a medal and it proves he has a great future ahead of him
#100 to #88 - anon (08/12/2012) [-]
this is true, and to be honest, when getting a bronze, you leave with a win, when getting silver, you leave with a loss
User avatar #129 to #88 - iammax (08/12/2012) [-]
exactly, even if you have just won silver it's very hard to celebrate after losing (e.g. Brazil in the football)
#92 to #88 - anon (08/12/2012) [-]
No sure why you got reds, because that is correct in cases.
But you can't forget that with China, a country with a population of over 1.3 billion, just under a fifth of the world's population, where being a successful athlete means the difference between eating and starving.

In the UK if you earn a gold medal in the Olympics you're made for life, and with silver/bronze medals you will still be wealthy and remembered.

In China I doubt one gold on it's own even gets you much recognition because of the sheer amount they get. And I'm sure as far as the Government and people are concerned, you're a gold medal athlete or nothing.
User avatar #105 to #88 - firestarfox (08/12/2012) [-]
So the silver medal is like the ****** middle-child that no one cares for?

Olympic gold medals are 92.5% silver due to the value of gold but must contain at least six grams of gold.
