Summer Olympics 2016: Biggest Disappointments on Day 2 in Rio

Rio Olympics Streaming

Disappointment is a relative thing.

After the second full day of competition at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Team USA is tied with China in the overall medal standings. It’s been a pretty solid start for the Americans.

Still, the country defines Olympic success by one simple metric: Did it beat the rest of the world or not? With a bar that high, you feel every stumble.

Against such stiff competition day in and out, let downs are inevitable, and that goes for every country, not just Team USA.

Day 2 was no exception to this fact of life, and in fact may have ended ahead of the average pace. These are the athletes who fell a little short on Sunday.
