America is irrelevant at sports? Wait, what? This has got to be the stupidest hot take I’ve read on this thread. Name one other country which has the breadth of athletes the US does? You’ve said it yourself. USA generally finishes at the top of the table at the Olympics meaning it’s got medalist in more sports than the majority of other developed countries. Tennis? Golf? Snow/skateboarding? Skiing? Even sports where the US doesn’t have much a history, like rugby, they are getting increasingly better.
