Team USA has been crushing it so far at the 2016 Rio Olympics. We've already dominated in swimming, shooting, and side eye, and it's only day four! Since the beginning of the Olympic Games, the US has brought in 2,701 medals (and counting). Believe it or not, however, no American team or athlete has ever won a medal in any of these five sports.

1. Rhythmic gymnastics

Rhythmic Gymnastics became a sport in 1984, and the US has never won one stinking medal. You'd think we'd be just as good as any other country with a colorful ribbon on a stick, but we're not. Not even close. Team USA gymnast Laura Zeng will have a chance of breaking the losing streak for Team USA when she competes in Rio on August 19th.

How can we recruit this baby elephant to Team USA?

2. Trampoline

If you've ever seen America's Funniest Home Videos, then you know Americans struggle big time with the trampoline. As a direct result, we've never earned a medal in this event. Sad! America's Nicole Ahsinger and Logan Dooley will try to remedy this on August 12 and 13, respectively.

This would never happen in China.

3. Badminton

Finding out the US has never earned a medal in Badminton is almost as shocking as learning there's an 'n' in the word Badminton. Many of us tried this sport in high school PE class, but quickly lost focus giggling every time someone said "shuttlecock." Maybe it's less funny in other languages, idk. Americans Howard Shu will compete on August 12, and Paula Lynn Obanana and Iris Wang will begin their matchups on August 11.

4. Table Tennis

Table Tennis, aka Ping Pong, aka Non-alcoholic Beer Pong was introduced to the Olympics in 1988. Most of the medals have predictably gone to China. The United States has won zero table tennis medals. ZERO! Our most famous ping pong player is Forrest Gump, but he crushed it, so whatever. WE STILL RULE! (Lily Zhang and Timothy Wang will try again for America on August 12.)

Neither the US men or women's handball teams even qualified for the 2016 Olympics so the medal drought will continue. Dang it.

At least the USA still dominates at synchronized male stripping.
