Jun-22-09  percyblakeney: Argentina used to show very good results in the Olympiads. They were second three times in a row in the 1950s, and finished better than tenth 15 (!) starts in a row, this game being played in the last of those Olympiads. Impressive win by Quinteros against Polugaevsky (Chessmetrics #167 and #4).

Argentina dropped quite a bit lately and have reached top 50 only once in the five latest Olympiads. In 2008 the team finished 68th, behind for example Pakistan (top player rated 2265). I wonder if any other old top team has fallen so much in strength over the last years. Sweden used to be quite good in the 1930s compared to now, but has still finished much better than 50th every start.
