I can understand the joy at Valerie Adams receiving what was rightfully hers – a gold medal. I can also understand that people don’t like cheats. But FFS, there is a limit! It’s only the f*cking shotput! Nobody cares! It’s not that important!
Yes, Ostapchuk is a cheat and deserves to be disqualified, but Eric Young is a wanker. So are certain fast food chains. There is nothing uglier than an ugly one-eyed New Zealand sports fan (except maybe a Cantabrian one), and rather than getting a chip on their shoulders and treating it like some personal mob vendetta, New Zealanders should celebrate what Valerie Adams has achieved, accentuate the positive, and leave it at that.
