weird...and whoops

The BBC hammered her on it just now - they openly condemned isenbayeva.

clearly will hurt her internationally but might help her at home.

anyway, she is done - you can't take two years off and come back at her age

This will destroy her marketability outside of Russia. But, I can understand that she would have to tow the party line on the issue in order to please the Russian government. Any Russian athlete who speaks out against the anti-gay law would face severe retribution from Russian athletics and the government.

i'm sure a 31-year old russian is leaving a lot on the table by now not being able to get endorsements abroad. not. she can make a killing in russia by towing the party line just like she is doing. i have no idea if she actually believes what she is saying but she will be justly rewarded by the kingpins who run russia.

Whatever. Maybe she is brainwashed by the nationalism. Maybe she was coerced to speak out, as a lackey. Maybe she is just an ultra-conservative, or religious. In any event, she blew it by speaking out loud. But I would bet Fox news will make her a foreign correspondent.

When a person is being a blatant bigot, I usually don't like them...

Good on her. Homosexuality is an abomination.

Just because she doesn't support public homosexuality doesn't make her a blatant bigot.

The social pressure to enforce a conformity of view is operating equally strongly on Isinbayeva and on the people who have suddenly discovered that they now hate her for her views.

Mother Russia!

Finally someone speaks out against the popular opinion. Here come the bullies to attack anything that goes against the mainstream!

Yes it does.

It's too bad, I was liking her during the competition. Shame that she had to come out as a hateful idiot.

She's chumy with Putin. Seems a very important figure in Russian power circles. She was front and centre in the delegation that won the 2018 World Cup bid for Russia. The losing British bid had Prince William and David Beckham.
