Canadian Women’s Hockey Team Reprimanded For Partying And Other Olympic Fun-Crushing

I don’t know when someone decided that athletes were supposed to be virtuous role models, but apparently athletes didn’t get the memo. The International Olympic Committee got pissed off at the Canadian women’s hockey team who won gold medals and promptly cracked open some beers and champagne right on the ice. So they’re chilling on the rink, boozing it up and the Olympic Committee is all, “It is not what we want to see. I don’t think it’s a good promotion of sport values. If they celebrate in the changing room, that’s one thing, but not in public.” And then Canada’s Olympic Committee is all, “In terms of the actual celebration, it’s not exactly something uncommon in Canada.” Because, apparently, Canada wasn’t founded by lame-o narcs. [Newser]

I understand why they crack down on Olympians for illegal activities, but shouldn’t adults who just dedicated their lives to earning Olympic medals be allowed to celebrate? Apparently not, according to these instances of Olympic fun-crushing. Keep reading »

Olympic Figure Skaters Follow Fashion Trends, But Do They Set Them?

Whenever we watch Olympic figure skating, we get pretty caught up in analyzing the athletes’ outfits. While the men wowed us with their theatrical getups, the women followed current fashion trends. Well, a handful of them did.

In recent months, we’ve seen stars walk the red carpet in dresses with pieces missing. Cutouts figured into a few skaters’ costumes, including those worn by Joannie Rochette of Canada (above right), Miki Ando of Japan (above left), and Sarah Hecken of Germany during last night’s free skate. The difference is that the Olympians don’t actually show any skin — the “revealed” areas are actually covered in flesh-tone fabric.

Even though these skaters are on-trend, will what they wear on the ice make any styles au courant? Let’s hope not. Keep reading to see a popular Olympic look we won’t be copying. Keep reading »
