    Why would the Cuban Olympic Fed. give the flag to Lopez since he took a dive against Russia?

    Is this "dive" confirmed? Maybe he just lost. (And yes I've seen the match.)

    Well, I was hoping you or another poster would confirm it. Any reason you "know" that many cubans took a dive besides "they shoulda won that match?" It just seems every time a cuban loses in the finals there are allegations that they threw the match and I'm wondering if people have "inside info" on this.
