Olympic soap opera

The Olympic soap opera with sprint stars Costas Kenteris and Katerina Thanou is hopefully now near the finish line. To be in hospital since Friday when you are not hurt at all is only a Greek tragedy. Somebody should whisper the truth into Costas’s ear. And that somebody should be a Greek friend of his. Do that before the whole Greek nation dies of shame because of this Greek tragedy. Except for this tragic episode, the Greek nation should be proud of the Olympics. The stadiums are fine and the sports are great. LEIF SPARTVEIT, Norway.
