WhyteRaven74: consider this: The first summer Olympics were held in 1896. It's not like there's some long history of them in the games.

The US Army had horse mounted units in WW1. And horses have been in the Olympics. The real fun is the modern pentathlon, where the competitors don't bring their own horses. They pick what horse they ride by basically pulling names out of hats twenty minutes before the equestrian part of the competition starts.


even in water polo!

Galileo's Daughter: I heart Matt Grevers right now.

That dude is a farkin beast. He probably should have anchored the 4x100 yesterday.

I completely agree with you. I was thinking that when they announced both Phelps and Lochte in that line-up.


From what can be found, grevers is a sucky freestyle swimmer, so he wouldn't have been any help.

WhyteRaven74: Earguy: Some kind of rule was needed, but perhaps with the modern scoring it should be revisited.

Given there's no Soviet bloc any more, rule should be gone for that reason alone.

There was vote buying in figure skating just a few years ago. You don't need the Warsaw pact for that.
