I don't feel offfensed XD
Ah ? What did French team say about the US team ?
Personally, I think that France was pretentious by hoping for around thirty medals.
When I hear french commentators, I cannot refrain thinking that the French people are bad losers (>_<)
That disgusts me of the sport !

Go Italia ! Go Japan ! ^^

Thanks for being so understanding.
Alain Bernard was the one who made the comments about the Americans.

Here are some quotes from him.

“The Americans? We’re going to smash them. That’s what we came here for,” Bernard said.

“I’ll start my Games in the 4x100 meters freestyle relay final, confident that my pals will have qualified easily.

“The 100 meters favorite, it’s me,” he told journalists in Beijing. “If I didn’t believe I was, I wouldn’t be here at all.

“I’ve always said that 10 to 15 swimmers could be on the podium. But physically, I’m on top. I’m fitter than I was at the French championships, fitter than I was at the European championships.”

Just curious but why do you root for Italy?
I wouldn't like it if Americans were talking smack like that, too.
But I can understand if that was Bernard's way of trying to intimidate them.
But it just came off to be really arrogant which doesn't help their image to the US since lots of Americans already think French people are rude and smug.:/
At least the French team didn't seem so bad about losing when I read their comments from after the race.

My grandparents are Italian, and I feel more Italian than French, because, for me, French are exactly like the Americans think. At least, the majority. But, I'm wrong maybe. I dont' know what is the image of Italy XD I know them smiling, nice, friendly etc... like people in the South of France ^^

I didn't speak about the French team, but French people (commentators, suppoters... etc). They always find fault with something (>_<) as during football match. ("We lost because the referee was bought" - It's always the same thing (@_@)) But, I think the sportsmen are more fair-play ^^
