Looks like the ‘purge’ has started in Russia following their dismal showing in Vancouver. The head of their Olympic Committee has resigned. I was noticing when I was watching how few times they were in the mix. They’re usually very big at the winter games especially in skating and Hockey. I think the Hockey loss to Canada was particularly galling. Canada, with their record take in gold medals, has raised the bar for host country performance. Russia will host in 2012.
While Russia is able to boast
Sports prowess that’s better than most,
Vancouver fell flat
So there’s no standing pat,
As the next time it’s their turn to host.
