    Four 2004 Olympians Stripped of Medals

    Four of the track and field athletes from the 2004 Athens games were stripped of their medals due to doping (steroids):

    The athletes are Yuriy Bilonog of Ukraine, who won gold in men’s shot put; Svetlana Krivelyova of Russia, who won bronze in the women’s shot put; Ivan Tsikhan of Belarus, who won silver in the men’s hammer throw; and Iryna Yatchenko of Belarus, who won bronze in the women’s discus.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    PML that Adam Nelson's hissy fit should have won him gold after all.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
