2016 Olympic Women's 800 Preview: Like It Or Not, Caster Semenya Is Going to Crush Everyone In Rio

After CAS overturned the IAAF's hyperandrogenism policy last year, Semenya has been unstoppable; the only question in Rio is whether she wants to break the world record. World Indoor medallists Francine Niyonsaba of Burundi and Margaret Wambui of Kenya are the favorites for silver and bronze, though Canada's Melissa Bishop and Kenya's Eunice Sum both have a shot.

Olympic Debacle: The French Have Forgotten What The Olympics Are Supposed To Be About - Ezekiel Kemboi DQ'd From Men's Steeple After Protest

If you were in the Olympics, would you protest to get a competitor who trounced you in a race DQd for stepping on a line more than a mile from the finish line? The French should be ashamed. They are supporting the "win at all costs" mantra which is the same mantra that has resulted in the multiple doping scandals that are threatening the popularity of the Olympics.
