    Default Well, well, US Olympic medals are tainted

    The cash cow of US Olympics medal count, track and field events, has one of the most decorated athletes, Marion Jones, confess to taking steroids. But she also competed in relays I think so all the others should give their medals back as well.

    She was actually caught. How many just didn't get caught? You know without track stars America falls to like 5th place in medal count. Hmmmm.......

    Keep in mind that USA beat Russia only by 9 medals in Sydney.

    If Jones returns 5 medals and 3 of her teammates return their medals for each of the two relays, that is 11 medals total, which gives Russia team victory.

    For the record - a relay team counts as 1 medal in the team medal count. So ptouey on you !

    BTW - just following the trail blazed by your breathren...but idiots like Jones just don't know how to mask it as well as the Russians.

    Big, why do you live in the USA? I am just asking because it seems like all you want to do is dog on the USA about all the things that you perceive as being wrong.
    I don't personally know you but it seems like you are not happy here. All of your negative posts have me confused as to why you stay in this country.
    I am not trying to sound like a smart aleck or anything but if I was not happy or did not like it someplace then I would go somewhere else to live.

    Avallone,

    I would not bash USA so much if Americans were not so blind in their love for Democracy and freedom.
