Basketball is an American sport, so technically, it doesn't count.

Technicaly their Silver medal at the Beijing Olympics doesn´t count... Oh I see... <doh>
USofA are the only ones who take it seriously, so there should only be one medal :)
You just HAVE to be joking.. turn on Teledeporte tv Channel on Spanish tv. every day and what do you see.. Basketball. <yikes>
"You just HAVE to be joking"Haha

FOLKS DO SOME RESEARCH first. Spain won the Silver medal in basketball. Argentina did win the gold medal in mens futball. Basketball is a huge huge sport in the USA and also in Europe save for the UK. Many Spaniards and other Euro players are the only white players in USA team. Gasol is a god in Los Angeles in Spain and all over Europe. I think Spain is reconquering the world once again :) They are even buying some top banks in the USA. Just imagine if Franco had not ruined and slowed his nation with Fascism for such a long time Spain would have been at the top in so many things.
elche the Spanish nationalistic fanboy strikes again. Nobody cares about any of these things on a tennis forum, muchacho.
I have to say I agree with Elche. What a year for Spain! (small rebuke: Franco wasn't a fascist, just a disgraceful dictator who used FETydelasJONS for his own ends. Aupa Nadal!
