What a joke, now we are supposed to feel sorry for these people. I would not wish injury on anyone but I have ZERO respect for anyone involved in this. What a joke that these two were able to be "Olympians"...

There was another guy attempting to do something similar. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1 ... 2529250356" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; The article doesn't say it, but I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't buy his Columbian citizenship through donations to the right people/groups. If I remember right he didn't make the qualification standard.

The article is saying if you give enough money you should be forgiven, even revered.

Anyone know the current conversion of Air Miles travel points into FIS points?


Thinking of trying out for the Seychelles Islands nordic team (being the only member, fingers crossed I wouldn't have to train)…
