I voted "No" but mainly because I listen to the Olympics in Japanese and don't really hear what you're describing.

Is it other country's English commentary or is it also from American commentary as well?

FWIW

Yes I saw a team sport and when the Americans lost, the American commentators said the better team won and we deserved to lose. Whatever happened to supporting one’s athletes?

Not sure what event it was, but if it was the USA-France men's basketball game they weren't wrong. The US men were thoroughly out-played down the stretch.

By and large I find the NBC Olympic announcers to be one step short of being cheerleaders.

It was volleyball and the men’s team was excellent. The comment was wrong.

Sorry, didn't see any of the men's volleyball that I can recall.
