For some, a silver medal is an accomplishment, but for others.. it's a disappointment, considering the hard work put in striving for gold.
British light-heavy weight boxer Benjamin Whittaker grabbed media attention on Wednesday after he refused to wear HIS silver medal following a split-decision loss to Cuba's Arlen Lopez in the final.
In a follow up interview, he said he felt like a failure and that he didn't perform as well as he had prepared for coming into the Olympics.
However he also showed regret saying the event wasn't about him but about representing his country, so he should've been proud.
