    Last American Olympic Champion

    Why? Frank Carroll is American enough ... and in 2010 he (and Evan)demonstrated the advantage of back loading jumps. Why more US coaches haven't copied him, I don't know, but it is not unique to Eteri ... and considering that the USFS (along with other US athletic groups) are in enough...

    Why Does This Keep Happening: The Police Thread

    Banksy made a similar proposal: https://www.dezeen.com/2020/06/11/banksy-edward-colston-statue-slave-trader/ That the statues were erected says something about the group that erected it; that it took so long to realize that the person depicted shouldn't be honored says something about the...

    USFS announces Alysa Liu's coaching change to Barkell & Nichol in Toronto and Massimo Scali in Oakland, CA

    Former Belgian king's statute removed after it was vandalized. IMO, removal is long overdue, considering: https://royalcentral.co.uk/europe/belgium/statue-of-king-leopold-ii-removed-in-belgium-144185/
