    Re: Connection?

    The athletes and other competitors felt he did nothing wrong. I believe he did nothing wrong.

    Note: By the way, I do the same thing in racing games. Sometimes I go as far setting my car up so that the player I'm playing against is likely to accidently hit me (fast racing game) and then hit me across the finish line. LOL.

    Ok, but in any case, what's your point? Do you think he did something wrong by slowing down and celebrating before the finish?

    In his defense, it was only the semi-final heat. So he show-boated. He went on to set a World Record in the medal heat.

    That's hardly worse than some of the athletes that didn't win that grabbed their national flags and paraded around for winning bronze.

    The American runner Walter Dix got moved from 5th to 3rd with 2 disqualification for lane violations. He won the bronze medal. When his friend told him he had won and he should be excited, he shrugged it off saying - "Yeah but I still lost."

    Ok, remind me never to post something that is meant to be FUNNY! Christ...

    No, I don't care about what he did, I was just surfing that comic and found that one and it came to mind, I though SOMEONE might have a sense of HUMOR.
