  12. Just not interested at all in the Olympics

    following the corruption of officials and athletes though. 1st time since Moscow in 1980 that I have not been interested

    Sport stopped being sport a long long time ago

    I'm not wanting to focus on the drug issue (i.e. the negative) too much... but it's getting harder to avoid... & frankly it's starting to really irritate me now. There are the above views from Michael Phelps, there is the Russian issue... & there is the East African issue (particularly Kenya)... which strikes a bit closer to my heart as I've been in admiration of these athletes for a long time (since a teenager competing in events which the East Africans dominate). The following is a documentary from the Australian channel, SBS, from the program - Dateline. Titled: The Betrayal of Kenya's Athletes. The doc. is hosted by former Paralympian Ade Adepitan who also admired these athletes.

    The SBS website is here which should show the video of the doc. as well as a write-up...
    The Betrayal of Kenya's Athletes (http://www.sbs.com.au/news/dateline/story/betrayal-kenyas-athletes)

    The corruption is apparently RIFE!... particularly within the organisation - Athletics Kenya!

    In case non-Australians can't see the doc. footage within the above link (being an Australian site), the following is the YouTube link...



    The following is a blog on the doc. from the host Ade Adepitan...

    Lifeguards at an event for the greatest swimmers on the planet may be akin to something like Christopher McDougall at a Podiatry conference (i.e. practically pointless)... but there was this one time at the Sydney 2000 Olympics where a Lifeguard may have got itchy feet... Equatorial Guinea competitor - Eric ("Eric the Eel") Moussambani swam the 100m freestyle...

    Australia's Roy & HG commentating (Aussie style)...



    But hey, as the "Olympic spirit" is rumoured to state... "The important thing is not to win, but to take part"... & "Eric the Eel" I suppose embodied that... which then reminds me of a Winter Olympic version - Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards.
