sportsmanship. or is it dignity?

This guy is an asshole. So is this one.

And a reminder:
The best moments in the Olympics have little to do with which large and powerful country can accumulate the most medals (the United States was well ahead of China and Russia at last count) or even which highly talented athletes can turn in superhuman performances. The real drama comes in those heart-tugging moments when some improbable underdog triumphs against all expectations, or some unheralded competitor grabs a medal, any medal, and electrifies a smaller nation.
