Then there was a protest that lasted for AAAAAGES. Then when they declared the German the win the Korean's coach lodged a written protest. If the fencer had left the bouting area (whatever it's called) then it would have meant she had accepted the result so she had to sit there while it was all sorted (apparently about 1.5 hours in the end).

THEN she had to come back out and fight for the bronze medal - which she lost, not suprisingly after all the drama beforehand
Poor girl.

It just goes to show that IMO, MTF is right in banning people for it, even if it's said "as a joke".

Oh, I was crying with joy. Well not really crying but I hope you get it. The girl was crying and not even the Lithuanian journalists knew about her before the Olympics. Her mother died when she was like 10, his dad was working in the States and when he moved to Plymouth in the UK 2 years ago or so when she was 13 he took his daughters (she has 2 sisters) to him and she kept on training there. She had been swimming in Lithuania already, after their mother died the girls lived with their grandmother in Lithuania.

I forgot about that. Now would be a good time for star to have me on ignore.
