Worst Olympic Performances

Here's a page listing the all-time worst performances in the Olympics. (Of course, the worst at the Olympics is still much better than the rest of us could ever hope to do.)

I found that page via an excellent blog called Runner-Up ("Where Seconds Count"), which looks at "non-winners" -- i.e., everything from second to last -- in many different events. Definitely a kindred spirit, and one well worth keeping an eye on after DFL shuts down at the end of the Olympics.
