"How lonely is invincibility!" In the Olympics, many "overlord" teams left legends. These teams maintain an absolute monopoly advantage in some projects, and win prizes and get soft. Their achievements are beyond the reach of other teams, and they are veritable "golden harvesters".
The U.S. Swimming Team: The "Dream Team" that has won half of the Olympic swimming gold medals
On the importance of super teams to a national medal list, let’s take a look The previous Olympic performances of the US National Swimming Team represented by Phelps, Ledkey and Rochette can be experienced.
In the 2004 Athens Olympics, the U.S. swimming team won 12 gold medals. In 2008 in Beijing, the American swimming team won 12 golds, 9 silvers and 10 bronzes. In the 2012 London Olympics, the powerful American swimming team won 16 gold medals in a row. In the 32 finals of the Rio Olympic Swimming Competition, 16 of the 33 gold medals were still won by the United States.
The American swimming team, which gathers stars and big names, is the "gold harvester" of the US Olympic medal list, and the world's top level masters are also the guarantee for the longevity of the US national swimming team. In the pool, the biggest star is still the legendary American player Phelps. In the Rio Olympics, he won 5 golds and 1 silver, with a total of 23 golds, 3 silvers and 2 bronzes, an unprecedented Olympic record.
In addition, the "genius girl" Ledki, who won almost all freestyle gold medals in the Rio Olympics, the 36-year-old Irvine, who is still not old for the Olympics, and the all-around swimmer Rochette of the Olympic Games. It is also a guarantee for the U.S. swimming team to win gold.
The Chinese table tennis team is "strong enough to make the opponent desperate"
There is a classic paragraph about the strength of the Chinese table tennis team: the reporter asks the Chinese players , Congratulations on your winning the world championship, what plans do you have in the future? The players sigh, I will continue to work hard to win a national championship!
Rather than saying that this is a joke, it is better to say that this is a fact. "Why is Chinese table tennis so invincible to lonely?" Looking at the Rio Olympics table tennis stadium, this question must linger in many people's minds. Ma Long won Zhang Jike and Ding Ning won Li Xiaoxia. Not only did she win gold and silver in the individual events, the men's and women's team competitions also won gold medals.
Changing the game system, changing the big ball, changing the glue, and even the Chinese team's own "wolf-raising plan" cannot stop the overwhelming advantage of the Chinese team in the Olympic arena. Having won the gold medal in table tennis for three consecutive Olympics, the name of the "Chinese Table Tennis Team" is simply daunting to opponents. No wonder people from the Korean Table Tennis Association once commented: "Chinese athletes are already strong enough to make their opponents desperate."
Korea National Archery Team: It is harder to enter the national team than to win gold in the Olympics!
As legendary as the Chinese table tennis team, I am afraid it is the Korean archery team. Take a look at their achievements in Rio: the men's team, women's team, women's individual and men's individual four events achieved a Grand Slam. This is the first time in the history of Olympic archery that a country has won all four gold medals. The Korean women's team also continued to win consecutive titles. The eight-time Olympic champion has continued to flourish.
Archery is called a "filial piety" project by Korean media, which means that it has contributed the most to the Korean medal list. From the Korean archery team's participation in the Olympic Games in 1984 to the sweep of Rio, South Korea has won 23 archery gold medals. Especially since the women's archery team competition entered the Olympics in 1988, the South Korean women's team won all the gold medals in the women's team competition. The world record and Olympic records of women's archery were also held by the South Korean team.
"The harder thing is to enter the national team than to win gold." The Korean archery team has a similar story to that of the Chinese table tennis team. Even after the restructuring system and windy weather, the South Korean shooter can secure the victory. The "god" Korean archery team made their opponents sigh: "No wayPlay! ”
One country’s competition: Kenyan men’s 3000-meter steeplechase nine consecutive championships
At every Olympic Games, the men’s 3000-meter steeplechase champion The faces and names are different, but they all have the same nationality: Kenya.
In the Rio Olympics men’s 3000-meter hurdle final, Kenyan Jiprutu won the gold medal in 8:03.29 , Breaking the Olympic record.
This gold medal is also the 9th consecutive time that a Kenyan player has won a gold medal in this event. It is also the most Long consecutive championship record. At present, only the 4x100 relay event of the US men’s swimming team can match it.
Russian synchronized swimming: 5 consecutive Olympic gold medals have not been dropped
For synchronized swimmers, the Russian flower tour is an insurmountable mountain. From Sydney to Rio, for 5 consecutive Olympics, the Russians have never let the flower tour gold medal fall.
In the Olympic synchronized swimming double free choice finals, the Russian team conquered the audience and referees with a delicate and smooth arrangement and a clean performance. In the end, they won the championship with an absolute advantage of 194.9910 points.
With the existence of the Russian team, other countries basically only fight for the silver medal in this event. The Chinese team Huang Xuechen and Sun Wenyan, who won the silver medal in the Olympic Games, said, Take the second as the first to compare, anyway, the Russian combination can't exceed it. "
The reason why the Russian flower tour is strong is not unrelated to its deep mass foundation. Compared with ballet and rhythmic gymnastics, Russian parents are more willing to send their children to practice flower tour, because the flower tour combines dance, Gymnastics and swimming have multiple skills, while practicing artistic temperament, they also provide more comprehensive exercise for children.
