Hard to tell, what i can say is they have alot of support, an easy way to do highly competitive sport for a living and all the facilities and equipment they need.
Most countrys can't spend that much money to support olympic atheletes.
is it me or is olympics a bit of a boring player
USA has one more edge over Russia and China. Talent import.
Ofc they're not. Especially China. They're so blinded with the idea of surpassing other nations they'd do anything to achieve it. It's ill
Elite sports = win or die
ofc people are doping
China probably has a state doping programme but the other athletes are not competing on "bread and water"
Russia clean hahahaha good joke, they got banned for state-sponsored doping
not japan, nowhere near as dominant as the other countries. might just be a lucky olympic considering its tokyo
russia and china are probably the only clean countries
