The team finished 2nd in total medals and absolutely dominated at at least of the venues. It sort of reminded me of the coverage of the last Summer games. The US team won an absolute avalanche of medals only to be ignored because a bunch of stupid NBA thugs got schooled by Puerto Rico in the prelim rounds.
We won a bunch of medals in stupid X-style "sports" that we invented. If it wasn't for those, we would have been buried by Latvia (or similar).
4 or 8 years from now, the countries that can afford to coddle its children to do crap-sport stuff will start edging us, just like we have lost the edge in Basketball.

"We won a bunch of medals in stupid X-style "sports" that we invented."
Does it seem to you as if those snowboard events are just a little bit too easy compared to the work, long hours, and years of dedication that other sports require?
Then there is the money thing. Compare the cost of fielding a bobsled team entry with that of a snowboarder.
I'm sure glad we invented it, though. Gets us medals with very little effort.
