Have you ever rooted for an Olympic athlete from another country who was competing against an American?
Usain Bolt. Lol
My heart I still in my homeland. Team Canada!
Eddie the Eagle!!
Fuck all y'all go team usa
Go Tom Daley!
Thanks Cajun. And I'm sorry if I got a bit too snarky there.
Sometimes their attractiveness is tempting...
Chad le Clos over the Baltimore Bullet.
Pr. You I will tolerate. Others, not so much. But you are ok in my book.
Germany because they arent even German any more. They all usually English or US.
whoever did is a traitor.
Sun Yang, Ennis, Sharapova, and Uchimura.
only my man usian bolt
Oh and of course Usain Bolt is awesome :)
Well, I'm Korean, so... But I do sometimes feel torn in a match between a Korean athlete(s) and another athlete(s) I personally like, i.e.) Sun Won vs. Taehwan Park or the British soccer team vs. the Korean team
Yes, If I think that another athlete is better at the event then I hope they win. But I always start off rooting for the Americans an the Italians.
Wow, Cajun, you preach tolerance then tell me to move to France. Go buy a dictionary.
Being British, I'm kind of obligated. Lol
Actually, Freedom, Tolerance, Importance of the Individual, Supremacy of reason and Pride are what make America great. However, when it comes to the Olympics we cheer for our own. Not against them. Move to France if you want to cheer for the underdog!
To all those talking s**t about those of us who answered yes, I say learn to think for yourselves. I am as proud of our athletes as you are, but sometimes I root for an underdog. Others may be rooting for someone from their homeland or who inspires them. Diversity is what makes America great!
Andy Murray as well.
Mo Farah. He has always been my favorite athlete. I couldn't believe it when he won with Galen Rupp right behind him. It was the perfect race.
Rooted for Tom Daley. I love him
@ari: It's so sad what happened, I mean he's just a kid.
Only Tom Daley. He's an inspiration.
Depends......is she really hot?
Sammy... shut the fuck up.
This is coming from someone who has never rooted for an athlete competing against an American athlete. Not everyone was born here, boo-boo. And Democrats tend to be more culturally diverse than Republicans.
I want that South African runner with prothetic legs to win gold.
do u people realise its not about politics its about sports...u guys make me sick
Dems you make me sick
I rooted for Sun yesterday in the 1500m. For some unknown reason they told everyone to stand up instead of the starting buzzer and he jumped in. I thought it was unfair so I rooted for him and he beat his own WR by over three seconds.
Any team versus Men's basketball!!
I'll definitely be rooting for the Jamaicans on the track events.
Sometimes, yes. I am not only American. I am Italian, Swedish, and German.
Unless the USA person is losing horribly then yes
Yes I like to root for Andorra
Not surprised by the democrats. They already cheer against the USA. Every election.
The Argentinian basketball team when they won the gold medal. Manu Ginobli is one of my favorite players. And I'll be rooting for the double amputee from South Africa this year!
