Australia & Argentina

I'll say it again - how can Australia be so good at so many sports. 4th in the medals table! And, they're also really good at Rugby, cricket and they have their own popular Australian Rules Football. Where does all that talent come from?

Nearly as surprising is the fact that before Saturday, Argentina hadn't won a gold medal in over 50 years. A fairly wealthy country of nearly 40m people and no gold medalist in all that time?

They won two on Saturday - basketball and soccer - to end the drought.
