TAINTED GOLD
Something was fishy about the disqualification of Ahn Hyun-Soo, and subsequent awarding of the gold to American Apolo Anton Ohno. I though jockeying for position was part of the sport, and that the lead skater had the right of way. It looked to me like Ohno simply realized he didn't have enough steam to pass him, and backed off.

Hey, I know Ohno worked hard for his gold medal, and I don't mean to diminish thhe accomplishment. I just think theat Ahn Hyun-Soo deserved better than to be disqualified by jusges moved by a hometowm corwd cheering on an athlete who had been screwed earlier.
