    I find "interesting" that people hate the argentinian behavior
     
    It's like if you are an european team its ok to be a sore loser or a bad winner, but if your  latinamerican/african/asian team it's completetly reprehensible

    If Argentina makes the final then it will be Marciniak I guess. An english ref would make some noise here and a dutch after what happened too... 
     
    About the racism article, my two cents. The premise and the title are obviously clickbait (and it worked! It has become a topic here for the last days). It lacks some facts for context to explain the premise and the math is a bit biased to cherry pick and back the main argument. But gotta say I agree with the general idea of the article (we as a country negate our black and indigenous history) and it raises some interesting topics for debate. Historically there have been quite fewer blacks here than other countries of the continent per slave trade matters. But is also true that the political leaders of the 19th century wanted to create a "whiter" and "better" country with "anglo" immigrants (and actually most of them were instead poor italians and spanish workers   ) and there has been racism and killings of indigenous people like in... about everywhere else in the world.
     
    It's true that most argentinians you'll meet are children or grandchildren of italian or spanish people that travelled here in the last 100 years. And that's why we think about ourselves as a european country in South America. But in reality most of us have some root of indigenous people as well and we are mostly a mixed of everything (black, indigenous, white, mestizos, etc.) now.

    I know a Black chilean, Jean Beausejour.
     
    I cant remember any black Paraguaian, bolivian or argentine person (i mean real Black, not "morochos" as they sair on the article)
     
    Equador is one of the countries with less black populatio in South American and their NT is the one with more black players outside an african country

    As brazilians usually remember the bad moments more than the good, I would say that the 2004 marathon "attack" is by far the most remembered Olympic moment here (but, of course, also because Vanderlei recovered and won bronze + Pierre de Coubertin medal). So much that he was selected to lit the cauldron at the Rio Olympics.
     

     
    Again with the bad moments, Rodrigo Pessoa/Baloubet du Rouet elimination in the 2000 individual jumping is often most remembered than their successful achievements (team bronze in the same competition, and individual gold in 2004). It was a perfect portrait of the Sydney Olympics, where Brazil didn't win a single gold medal. This also made Baloubet the most famous horse in Brazil ever.
     

     
    For the Volleyball moments, my brazilian friends have shared some good ones (1992 men's gold, 1996 women's beach gold/silver) and a terrible one (2004 women's defeat in semifinals), but by far the most remembered I think is the 2012 women's QF match vs Russia. This is replayed every year on TV, and is much more talked than the gold medal match vs USA (which was also an amazing comeback).
     

     
    From the Rio Olympics, probably the most remembered is Thiago Braz gold in pole vault. Multiple memes emerged from that unexpected medal..

    Racial/socioeconomic/colonial oppression often strengthens bonds between countries that have those experiences in common. Especially if it has happened in relatively recent times.
      
    With some exceptions it's common to see arabs support each other, likewise latin americans.

    I am super stoked! First, a gymnast from an Arab nation wins a medal at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, now an Arab nation beats former world champion Spain.

    Yes! 

    We need more diversity in sports. I hope Morocco at least wins a medal here. It will be difficult, but nothing is impossible now.
