Team USA has failed to medal in these 5 Summer Olympic sports | #sports | #elderly | #seniors
It’s no secret that the United States is the most decorative country when it comes to winning medals at the Summer Olympics, with the red, white and blue taking home 2,521 medals, the most of any country.
But believe it or not, there are some events the United States has never even medaled in at the Summer Olympics, despite the long history of the Games and the U.S. participation.
Here are five events the United States is still looking to medal for the first time in.
A popular outdoor game for summer or graduation parties, this actually is an Olympic sport. Since becoming a part of the Summer Olympics in 1992, China has dominated the competition, winning 41 of the 106 medals handed out. Indonesia and South Korea are next with 19 medals.
It might be a relatively new sport, but why can’t the U.S. be good at this? If the popular backyard game of cornhole can have its own professional leagues, why can’t a U.S. prodigy in badminton step up and journey to an Olympic medal?
