Rent Party: You are always responsible for your own actions. The coach didn't make him do it. I'm pretty sure a super fit Olympic athlete can resist an old man.

Sometimes "Just say no" is a workable solution.



DNRTFA, but caught the story on NPR this morning. According to the skater if he had refused he would have lost his shot at the olympics. As an anonymous guy on the web I'm sure you would have done the right thing and walked away from your dream.

Ban the skater and coach for life. You cant let crap like that stand. If it goes deeper ban the US speedskating team from the next olympics if need be. Id much rather see the US lose badly than win like that.
