Spanish term or phrase:demasiada
The word is found in this sentence. Colombia y Mexico son dos paises som demasiada tradicion en el levantamiento de pesas.
Explanation: If that full-stop is where it seems to be I would heavily hesitate to use "too much". It would sound ok to me if it were "too much...to...". Instead you might think of using this: C. and M. are two countries with long-standing tradition in weightlifting.

Explanation: Literally demasiada means too much but its used constantly (at least in Mexico) in an affirmative form, meaning really a lot, although not more than needed.
Could "som"be an error an mean "con"?
both countries have a long-standing tradition doing/in weight-lifting
