    The speed of the police response in both cases made organizers believe police may have been tapping their phones to monitor their movements.
    Or the terrorism and terrorist threats surrounding the largest sporting event in the world means heightened security, more police everywhere, and quicker response times.

    Animal right activists also getting arrested by Russia for speech. IOC thinks that's fine too.

    Are we going to have a thread that is just for the actual athletic events and not the political bullshit the Russians are pulling? Both issues are important but should be separate IMO.

    U.S. snowboarders are among the athletes speaking out against anti-gay laws in Russia, the host country of the Winter Olympics.

    Biathlon. You're putting everything in physically while skiing - breathing hard, etc. then you have to completely shift gears. Focus, slow heartbeat, calm breathing, aim and then switch back. It's awesome!

    I thought biathalon was lame at first too, but then someone explained how difficult it is to slow down and control your heartbeat when shooting and all of that. It seems pretty cool.

    100% Olympic BULLSHIT from IOC president Thomas Bach.

    Seth - there's a new Olympics/politics thread. This goes there please. This thread is for laughing at the passing contest/opening ceremony cockups and other important matters. I predict that the opening ceremony (both Olympics) will soon last longer than the actual games.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I think Twitchy decided to make the new thread politics-free instead.
