I disagree. For a day or so he compounded the image that Brazil was a completely lawless country totally unsafe for the Olympics. His reckless comments tarnished the reputation of the host country. It's like getting up at a wedding and saying someone stole your wallet - kind of kills the mood.
I rest my case.
Of the many issues I just don't know which one to concentrate on first, find myself doing a couple at once.(and thus not really fixing anything) I'm thinking clearing hips more at impact position is my first fix but not sure which issue is the main one I should start with. Please help.
Everyone over reacts, including sponsors. The media made this a lot worse than it was imo. I support the sponsors decision to cancel the contract but when you look at what others athletes have done, this is as much of a non-story as you can get. If he told his mother the truth I doubt we'd even know it happened.
