Just to clarify some details the article got slightly wrong- Evgeni was not arrested immediately upon re-entering the country. He returned home and was informed by the lawyers that he would have to report to jail in order to await his hearing/trial...So he wasn't exactly taken into custody by the IDF police as he left the airplane- Though that would have been OH so much more dramatic....

I hope this process can be expedited and the kids can get back to their training!

I wish the team the best of luck....Poor kids can't seem to catch a break!

No consequences at all as far as I know. Let's just say I was found guilty 7 times out of 9 I was judged in the army and other than being an amusing story to tell friends there is nothing else.

Bad TAHbKA! :D

Poor guy. The people who should be serving this is his federation. This being said maybe next time he should get confirmation from the army itself seeing as his fed is this disorganized.

Sure they would. That is if we had any troops that were of that caliber.

The US Army actually has a sportsman section called the World Class Athlete Program. At last Winter Olympics, one of the bobsledders didn't deploy with his unit so he could train/complete and wasn't sure if he was going to deploy to Afghanistan after the Olympics were over or not and do PR/promotional stuff for the Army instead (I don't remember if I ever read a followup on if he did deploy or not. EDIT: He did (http://www.teamusa.org/news/2010/12/22/john-napier-back-on-track/40200)). The Olympic sport shooting team usually has a few team members from the Army, too, and other miscellaneous sports are represented.

Yeah, there are similar programs in all the services. I was serious when I said if we had any troops that were of Worlds caliber they'd be allowed to compete.
