I guess that all depends on how many of the younger ones were raised IMO to be honest. If they worked their hearts out to simply be in the Olympics
and appreciate that just being there is a major accomplishment then they'd feel proud winning a Bronze or a Silver but to be fair whenever I played
sports either in a team based event or competed in an individual type activity coming in second can be hard sometimes if you feel that a certain call
wasn't right or there was a possible factor most were not aware of etc etc etc
On the other hand..
Older, seasoned people, like Phelps IMO it's all about ego at that point after being a winner for so long over so many events ETC.
