Iranian Refuses to Race Israeli in the Olympics

Politics reared its ugly head at the Olympic Games day after an Iranian swimmer refused to compete alongside Israeli swimmer.

“Politics takes precedence over sport with the Iranians and the Olympic spirit is as far from them as east is far from west. … My heart goes out to the Iranian athletes. In the Athens Olympics one of their sportsmen, who was a gold medal favorite, had to pull out because he was drawn against an Israeli.”

Those Iranians sure are ‘good’ people…
