Is America the most athletic country in the world? Of course, it is, we dominate in the Olympics, baseball, football, and basketball and even our college sports trump other countries' athletics events. We are the best of the best and have the greatest competition on Earth.
First, we crush other countries in the Olympics. America holds 2, 548 medals but that is doubled compared to the country that comes in second, the USSR, which has 1,204 medals. Also, America has hosted 8 Olympic games which are the most any country has hosted.
Second, when it comes to pro sports we are also a much better country. The NBA is the best basketball league in the world. Players from other countries want to come here to play, for example, Bol Bol who is from Sudan, Dirk Nowitzki who is from Germany, and Yao Ming who is from China all came here to play basketball. Now, this is the same with baseball. There are many other countries with good baseball leagues and even good national teams but a lot of the players work to make it to America so they can show they can play with the best competition on the globe.
Last, college sports in America are just elite. Even small JUCO schools and NAIA schools are bigger than the ones in other countries. An example of how big college sports are in America compared to other countries is that 22 million people watched the college football national championship but only 6 million watched the British Open.
In summary, America is the best sports country in the world, dominating in so many sports. In my unbiased opinion, I think America is not just the greatest country in the world, we are the most athletic country in the world.
