Disagree with boxing though.... hw is dominated by euros and up until recently with ward breaking on the scene so was super middleweight. 2008 olympics we only had ONE medalist..
The US Team had a rough patch a few times, but only when it was lacking the depth that we are used to seeing. A lot of guys wouldn't commit and there were also some injuries, and the spat with Paul Pierce. Yeah, Europe has come up in the last 10 years, but don't get it twisted there are some great white Americans playing the game of basketball, and the history is very rich with great white American players.
As for Boxing, you are crazy!
I am talking about ALL-TIME, not just right this minute, and not just Olympic Boxing. Although, we have more Olympic Medals in Boxing than anybody else and it's not even close. Most of the best boxers of all time, at least on my list, come from the USA.
