I am outraged that the US Olympic committee or the Athens Olympic committee would try and intimidate America's athlete's in not showing our American flag!

Yes, we've made some terrible mistakes but at least we air our problems in the public for all to see, unlike some countries who take, take and take from us and then stab us in the back.

Why should young athlete's of any country be involved in this incredible USA bashing or be punished for polictical errors.

It is not fair and I am protesting this behavior.

Please keep an open mind and treat all athlete's as you would treat Athens's own.

Thank you for taking the time to read my email!

A concerned person for ALL human rights.

the american gymnast was robbed in the floor exercise. the judging has been awful since the paul hamm controversy. what more do we need to prove. all other countries are inferior to our athletes.

chris miranda » 24 August, 2004 1:05 PM

what is with the fans. they should be disqualified from ever attending any competitive sporting event ever. people these are the olympics, athletes train their whole lives for one moment of glory. what was done to paul hamm was a disgrace and i am ashamed of the crowds behavior during the leadup to his routine.
a concerned fan of the american champions!!!

There's no controversy, what Paul Hamm did was dishonest and wrong. He should give the medal back. He did not win it, he conveniently stole it from his worthy opponent. The medal will be forever tarnished. I have yet to discover just what separates him from athletes using performance enhancers "six degrees of sibling rivalry?" Clearly, he's shown how a heaping dose of dishonesty can certainly elevate one's performance. Can we please start raising a generation of young people who know what honour is all about, instead of those adopting a "win at all cost" attitude. He may not see it now but he has shown himself to be the loser by far. Perhaps when the little boy grows up he'll realize how poorly he behaved, and give the medal back. As Katie Courric put it, "he had the opportunity to be the bigger person."
