    Australian Wrestler misses out on Gold Medal, then douches it up to lose Silver medal

    This is from the Sydney Morning Herald today.

    http://www.smh.com.au/commonwealth-g...ml?autostart=1

    Now, I am sure many of our American brethren will be saying "the Common- what Games?" Or "man, I thought the Olympics was every four years, how the **** did Delhi get to host this" and "where the **** is Delhi?", but don't fret. This is the Commonwealth Games, countries that are still connected in some way to the British Empire attend an Olympic style Games every four years to show off how good a convict colony is better at most things than the rest of those countries under Brittania Rule. Suck it, England.

    So here we are, cleaning up the medal tally as usual, when one of our Aussie wrestlers, Tunisian born Hassene Fkiri, decided to show some decidedly unsportsmanlike behaviour by attempting to slap and headbutt his opponent, refusing to shake his competitors hand and then, in order to be known forever as the epitome of douchebaggery, proceeded to flip off the world level judges. It lost him the Silver Medal. Not that Australia needed it for the tally, but damn, it would've been better than not getting it for us and for him. He is now not a "Silver Medallist at the 2010 Commonwealth Games", he's the "major douche who couldn't handle losing".

    His coach and him both admit it was wrong, but they are also laying some blame on the competitor for some sort of neck attack that frustrated him. As I didn't see the event, I can't comment, but if anyone has any info, post it here.

    there may have been some neck cranking at around 4:45 but apart from that I can't see what he was bitching about.

    do greco rules prohibit two hands on the back of the neck? I only know that two hands arent allowed on the face.

    On the bright side the Indian guy was a class act.

    That he was. Congratulations to him for winning the gold for his country and staying composed in the face of overwhelming douchebaggery.

    "This is the Commonwealth Games, countries that are still connected in some way to the British Empire"

    So why is India there? Thought she wasn't Dominion.

    As for the outcome... justice.

    What? India was a big part of the Empire since the 1800's and Dominion for some of it too, as wikipedia will confirm if you can be arsed.

    Anyway, as for the douche I don't really understand why high level athletes act like at. I guess I'm pretty chilled and don't really lose my temper even under great pressure so I find it hard to relate. His coaches attempt at justifying it was pretty lame too.

    Looks like another Aussie is showing the same sportmanship in cycling. WTF?

    And capt moroni, notice how I worded it "connected in some way".

    Was looking at it from a military standpoint. The Canadian military, e.g., ostensibly answers to the Crown. Didn't think India had the same relationship, and thought Dominion countries did.

    And as for the Aussie, again, justice.
