LOL... I'd bet every penny I have that the truth is not a pound under 280. Probably closer to 300.

I'm 5'9 and 225. Admittedly overweight (working on it) but there's no way in hell that guy with a gut vastly larger than mine, weighs only 15 pounds more than me being almost half a foot taller.

Golf is an incredible sport, that some take as a hobby.

can anyone explain the deal with russia in the olympics. They are allowed to compete but do they get medals? why is their flag not on display next to athlete names etc?


and whats the deal with N. and S. Korea teaming up. while unlikely, say the hockey team wins a medal... do they both get credit for receiving a medal in the games?

As for Korea.. I think it's only the women's hockey that was actually unified. And they aren't expected to medal. All other sports those medals will be counted as North and South Korea separately. Not sure if the hockey team were to win how that would be treated.

ok, really lame.... so, the only consequence is not displaying the flag or colors lol...so, based on the below, the athletes will still get a medal and keep it. just wont count towards the record books. makes no sense....what if an athlete breaks a record? is that an active record?

this all makes no sense

They canít wear their countryís colors (hence the drab, neutral-colored uniforms), they canít display the Russian flag (why they marched under a neutral flag with just the Olympics logo on it), and any medals they win wonít go toward Russiaís medal count in the history books

It makes sense to me. This punishes Russia for widespread cheating while not punishing the athletes who actually are clean. It damages Russian Olympic prestige, the intended consequence of the sanctions.

Chloe Kim smashed it on the halfpipe, congratz to her on getting that gold. Watching Shaun White's qualifying run was crazy.

I was worried for a second with the Japanese guy. Glad Shaun pulled it out, I guess the 62 stitches he got learning the new tricks were worth it He certainly redeemed himself for Sochi.

They can’t wear their country’s colors (hence the drab, neutral-colored uniforms), they can’t display the Russian flag (why they marched under a neutral flag with just the Olympics logo on it), and any medals they win won’t go toward Russia’s medal count in the history books
If you have Netflix I highly recommend this great documentary:

Fittingly, his gold was the United State's 100th gold medal in the Winter Olympics.

Mikaela Shiffrin is amazingly talented and the hottest athlete at these Olympics.
