I wrote this after the Olympics, but I’ve been hesitant to post this. But recent events (I’ll be making another post about the Paralympics) But I’ve decided to post this.
Are The Olympics supposed to be fair? Was the Oath said at the start of the games by the athletes and also the referees and officials?
To be honest in some events, it almost seems like the Oath was not kept, or something seriously happened.
What happened to the Olympic Oath during the Women’s Semi-final soccer game between Canada and USA with the referee’s bad calls that cost Canada the game? The whole world could see that they were bad calls and yet nothing happens. And FIFA wants to penalize Canada? So every time a team argues with the ref because of a bad call should get penalized? It doesn’t always happen. And Bad calls that are so wrong even FIFA can tell their wrong. A goalie is supposed to get a warning for holding the ball too long first, among the bad calls If Sinclair’s arguing then you know something is wrong, and what happens? We lose because of those bad calls, and miss our chance at Gold. So what’s your justification for still penalizing?
But being Canada, we’re like the phoenix, we might get knocked down, but we rise up and fight and win that Bronze medal! wooooo
Let’s go with the next instance of what I think was not fair. It involves the men’s 4x400m relay. I don’t know all the rules but don’t runner’s have to stay in their own lane and not all join in one so Oscar Pistorius couldn’t run as fast because his lane’s being clogged?
And that leads me to my next and final point. Let’s talk about what happened earlier today in the men’s 4x100m relay. These two points tie into each other. So in the men’s 4×400 they can all pile into one lane but they have to stay in their own lanes for the 4×100? You announce that Canada wins Bronze and the take it away after keeping them in suspense because no one knows what happened.
All we can do is pray that Rio will go more smoothly.
