Russia threatens Olympic withdrawl

I can't believe how hypocritical these people are. While complaining about the questioning of the figure skating outcome they were launching protests about the outcome of a cross country ski event.

Their main reason for threatening to pull out seems to be that too many of their athletes are failing the doping tests. The latest drug test failure seems to mean that they will not be able to put a team together for one of the upcoming cross country events. But they are also upset about sharing the figure pairs gold and low marks that one of their aerialists recieved.

I very much doubt that they will pull out. Especially with the men's hockey team still in the medal hunt.

Russians pull out of the women's relay, Norway field the worst relay team in 30 years -> Free German gold medal. Bleh...

Too high levels of hemoglobin in one of their best skiers apparently the reason for the Russian withdrawal from the relay.

Just yesterday the World Anti-doping Agency pres. Dick Pound was telling Beckie Scott to shut up about allegations that X-country was full of dopers.

What message are the Russians trying to give?

Russia to the world: 'Please don't inconvience us when you catch us cheating.' 'Please don't reform the judging system, the old corrupt way works fine for us.' 'Quit catching so many of our star athletes with doping tests or we will leave in a huff.'

The Koreans are also threatening to withdrawl over the short track incident. They're also talking about not going to the games in Athens in 2004. The rest of Korea is busy crashing the IOC's mail server with death threats to Apolo Anton Ohno.

"Olympic Withdrawal"? Perhaps they should scale down their involvement slowly, perhaps replacing it with a few world championships rather than go cold turkey.

To late, another olympics will be born in a few years.

It's pretty funny that the cheaters are now caught, and threaten to leave, like anybody cares.

It's just more medals for the west.

Notice how many more medals were won without the cheating by obscure third world nations like Britain?

Now the Russians are protesting the women's figure skating finals, even though Slutskya stumbled twice and Hughes skated perfectly.

It's so obviously a revenge tactic. It's not eve cleverly done. Had the slut of the sky not fucked up, then yes, by all means, protest. But honestly, it's just so transparent. I've heard 3 year olds whine better than this,

The Russians are no fun since the commies left.

Bunch of whiney girlymen now.

In the old days, they would have invaded Poland or something over this.

Hey Chris. The Slut looks fine to me. Could it be that my standards are dropping?

The games always seem to feature the ugly side of nationalism. I thought that the Russians had made some positive strides in objective reporting, but that doesn't seem to extend to sports reporting.

She wasn't bad, EXCEPT for the man shoulders, face was decent, had good sized cans for a skater, nice ass too, a little muscular maybe, but not bad.

The American gal was clearly a teen, but is much smoother, and will be first class gash very shortly.

You know, threatening to withdrawl when there is only 1 and a half days left is pretty lame. Just sounds to me like they are scared to get beat in Hockey again.

They are also protesting the awarding of double gold, as it wasn't fair. Claim their cross country skier isn't doped, she's having her period, yadda yadda blah.

Now, the Koreans have a real reason to be upset from what I saw. Even the athletes themselves agree. It wasn't a clear cut thing. Hell, Apollo said so himself. He just played it up, "cause that's what you do, ya know? Call attention to it, and let the judges decide. You might get lucky." But I don't see why the Koreans would want to send him death threats. It's the judge that makes the call. Unless the Koreans are admitting they are just inferior to the US and have to kill our athletes to beat us. (And having watched some of the short track, I don't believe that.)

Koreans kill (or at least beat the shit out of) people who beat them at computer games. Serious sports like shorttrack speed... well, why do you think North Korea is trying to develop ICBMs?

(After all, it worked for the Russians when they were threatening everyone with them).

And I'm firmly convinced that, if the Russian team pulled out, their Hockey players just wouldn't go. Unlike everyone else, they have a real chance of doing well and aren't just a pack of whiney girl's blouses.

Ah, Curling - the ultimate sport. No doping, no judging, just two blond chicks screaming at a piece of granite.

You should read the astronest forums. Or better not, if you like Koreans. They need a good HARDMANing.

The Slut, herself, was bitching about getting second right from the beginning. Frankly, I wish the Russians would leave, and not bother coming back. Such poor sportsmanship.

Though I'm still upset about Kwan. But she choked under the pressure. During the short performance she wasn't worrying about it instead being more like Hughes, just enjoying it. Hopefully, she'll be back for 2006.
