There are exceptions (cycling is sort of a team event but sort of an individual one at times) but for most races and tournaments a country only ever sends their top 2 to chase medals so the podium isn't dominated by one country. I'm sure there are plenty of 3rd best Chinese ping pongers that wish this wasn't so.
