OT - Olympics… Turning to Pathetic Cra……:-O Is it curb time???
WELL as the say goes, all good things must come to an end and these 2012 Olympics, seem to be clearly ripe for being kicked to the curb. at least for me. LOUSY and questionable judging, giving terrible athletes way too many points and screwing another one for her chance for gold, DUE TO A 1 SECOND “””MECHINICAL””” FAILURE? The list of (SUCKY) Olympics goes on and on! Here are 2 examples… Synchronized diving had 2 female Canadian divers getting WAY TOO MANY points for their WAY OUT OF SCYNC diving! You are suppose to mirror exactly each others steps and moves and hitting the water exactly side by side and yet… these 2… athletes(?) FAILED miserable and still got a lot of points! (Sucky Olympic judges 1… athletes… 0) But still another incident deals with a South Korean fencer Shin A Lam! With time running out in one of the two semifinal matches for the women's individual epee competition, South Korea's Shin A Lam led Germany's Britta Heidermann by a single point. Officially, Heidermann had just one second to launch an attack and score a touch, which would advance her on to the gold medal match to face the Ukraine's Yana Shemyakina, a lack of time which all but ensured that Shin would advance. Instead, the timing mechanism on the piste became stuck, giving Heidermann extra time to complete her attack and win the bout, which earned her the spot in the gold medal bout. Officials, unsure what to do without a true, official protocol to follow, eventually decided to award the victory to Heidermann. WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE, IS THE CONTEST SHOULD HAVE BEEN RESCHEDULED IN A DAY OR SO; making sure all timing devices worked properly! (Sucky Olympic judges 2… athletes… 0) BUT hey, what’s the big deal? Just a young athlete (And her family) that spent countless minutes, hours, days, weeks and years practice and sacrificing (And surely a lot of $$$) to arrive at that once in a life opportunity to win Olympic Gold; only to have that moment TAKEN away by some LOSER JUDGES, (AGAIN… Unsure what to do without a true, official protocol to follow) that will get to spend the rest of their lives, remembering how they made that call, that screwed over an athlete! I hope you SORRY As… judges keep that athlete's broken heart scene in every waking day of your lives! You are PATHRETIC human beings in my book! Yes, this present Olympics is clearly turning to CRA… and I think it’s getting time to kick this Pathetic Circus event to the curb!
