When one is repeatedly moved to tears after failing at an accomplishment they've worked tirelessly towards.

First noticed during the 2012 London Olympics when the Women's Russian Gymnastics team were often shown crying after one anothers less than stellar performances.

While completely understandable, it can become a bit ridiculous at a point.
Andy: Dude, why is Whitney wailing in her cubicle?

Shawn: Oh, the boss' son got the promotion that she thought was hers. So now she's crying like a Russian gymnast.
