Richard,

The 1984 Olympics was the last to turn a profit.

#5 and #9 All they have to do is claim institutional racism or cr#p like that, and they'll be reinstated.

Claire,

actually a small amount of alcohol will help in shooting sports by relaxing you and steadying your aim.

#8 Ingemar Johansson: *pioneers skillful technique of wearing opponent out, gets disqualified

Ali: *does the same thing 22 years later but gives it kitschy name "rope-a-dope," becomes a legend

actually it is interesting that all this doping stuff is so important but yet, a man who has chosen to become a woman is allowed to use his man strength against non surgically adjusted females.
Not a xenophobe or anything like it. Frankly I find this ironic considering.....

They should make "alternative olympics" where anything goes... im sure they would get more views than the regular ones... IOC has too much sand stuck between their @$$ cheeks...
Also,
Im sorry Japan.. these idiots and their stupid covid games have had a negative impact on you hosting the games... i am sure if everything was normal and these idiots wouldnt be such liars and bad influences - you would make every other country that hosted the olympics look like children playing in a sandbox in comparison. (Regarding ceremony and whatever) - you guys are awesome:)

Also- the guy who had thc in his system - lol - he should have gotten a head start

1972: Rick Demont, USA

Rick DeMont is a former American swimmer who competed in the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics. At just 16 years old, he won the gold medal for the men's 400-meter freestyle and qualified to represent the US. However, his asthma medication, Marax, had a prohibited substance in it. While the US Olympic Committee was aware of the medication, they never cleared it with the IOC, and he was later disqualified and banned from competing in any other events.
