World Championships in Athletics

This was the last day of the Athletics world championships. The championships were held in Japan, which was nice. The USA got a lot of medals, but Sweden only got one medal. It was a gold medal, but it was still not such a good result that many had hoped. A lot of the Swedish athletes whom we hoped would get medals failed. Well, it would not be fun if they were always equally successful. It is just like the dog shows in which me and my family compete, it would not be as nice if we would always be very successful. The suspense must be there and when you fail, you can look forward to a better result the next time. You also have to put the Swedish result in its historical context. There have been more than one world championships were Sweden did not get a single medal. When compared to that, one gold is a good result.
