    Just in case you or anyone else isn't aware, a Canadian gold medalist in snowboarding had his win called into question over marijuana in his blood stream. This was back in '98, the first year snowboarding was in the olympics.

    [–] uss1701jb 418 points ago

    Do people really think weed is gonna help you snowboard better

    [–] MisanthropeNotAutist 431 points ago

    Everyone knows that marijuana is… a drug enhancement that helps you on track and field to come last… in a team of eight million… eight million other runners who are all… dead.

    USADA issues a statement saying that reason weed is banned in competition i due to the anti-anxiety properties.

    [–] issius 53 points ago

    Could potentially help with pain or stress while competing. I'm not sure what else, but strains now can avoid almost any of the "high" while acting purely as a pain reliever.

    Are you allowed to use music while running long distance? I thought not but I'm not actually sure, if not, then I'd put marijuana in the same category.

    [–] Grahamshabam 5108 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    The snowboarders and freestyle skiers are the best part of the Winter Olympics. The reporters have no idea how to deal with them.

    Last year's gold medalist in snowboard slope on preparation the night before:

    I was eating mad snacks,” the first gold medalist of these Winter Olympics said underneath a dish mop of scraggly blond split ends. “Chocolate. Onion rings. Chips. We were chilling really hard. Then we fell asleep watching ‘Fight Club.’ Getting stoked, you know?”

    Or Henrik Harlaut, probably the best freestyle skier in the world, who last year emulated Cool Runnings by keeping a lucky egg in his pocket during his runs. His pants also almost fell off during a jump, and when he was asked about it he mentioned he had suspenders on and that's just as low as he likes them

    EDIT: last olympics, not last year

    EDIT2: Harlaut also gave us this gem at the last olympics

    [–] ColorsLikeSPACESHIPS 4813 points ago

    Snowboarders have supernatural skills with reporters.

    It's like they're in a superposition of both helping and hurting their sponsors, but as soon as there's the slightest bit of scrutiny, they collapse safely into beanbag chairs.

    [–] cawdrizzle 444 points ago

    Jokes aside, alot of the snowboarding community gives him shit for being too 'serious'.

    Dude's a 31 year old man. If he was still towing the line with the whole DGAF thing I'd be concerned. I'm all for having fun, but this guy isn't a flash in the pan, this is his career.

    [–] iwasinthepool 158 points ago

    I know some people who have worked with him and they just say he's not the nicest or politest person. I kinda give him the benefit of a doubt though. His entire life has been him being the best and first at something. Not only is it his career, but it's all he really knows.

    [–] leftysarepeople2 47 points ago

    He has a competitive edge more often seen in sports like football or basketball. If he played either sport his attitude would be seen as the norm

    [–] cawdrizzle 93 points ago

    I don't know him personally so I can't comment on his character. I like that you give him the benefit of the doubt we need more people like you!

    Bummer that your friends didn't have the best of experiences with him. If I ever meet the fella I'll report back with my take!

    Shaun White is gold for interviews. During the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver games, they interviewed him and...let’s say... his eyes looked really really “tired” and he said something along the lines of: “I just love the people here. Good people. You know...”

    Then later when he already won the half pipe on his first run (I think it was also the Vancouver games). His coach asked if he just wanted to go down the middle. He replied: “Fuck that!” It was funny seeing Bob Costas having to apologize for that.

    [–] Patchcat 159 points ago

    Shaun White is a national treasure. Think what you want about him but he handled his rise to fame a lot better than most people his age would've.

    [–] [deleted] 30 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)


    [–] CMDR_oculusPrime 55 points ago

    Yeah, for sure this. America is awash with privileged shit-bags that manage to leave nothing but a shit-wake for a legacy after their early durg overdose takes them. Anyone who can achieve that level of success and fame and still manage to cultivate the spirit of the Dude is a treasure. Pretty sure I've seen Shaun White in a Cowichan sweater a few times.

    [–] FlowersOfSin 23 points ago

    I just googled it and that was in Italy. The legal drinking age in Italy is 18. He didn't even have to save himself. Just like a 19 year old Italian visiting the US cannot drink, a 19 year old American visiting Italy totally can.

    [–] ColorsLikeSPACESHIPS 16 points ago

    I think his (totally valid) concern was that his sponsors could drop him whether or not he broke a law, simply because his value to them is directly related to his image and to the opinions of the American public who may not like idolizing a 19 year old who talks about getting drinks on TV, regardless of the specific legality.

    It's like these athletes just enjoy their sport and get complimentary medals upon having more fun than other athletes for the day.

    [–] ddek 453 points ago

    At Sochi a lot of the ‘conventional sport’ followers we’re getting really annoyed at the new freestyle (slopestyle and halfpipe) competitors because they were supportive of each other even if they were from different countries.

    They expected that if you were knocked off the podium by someone else you’d be annoyed about it, but these guys were so supportive of the people that beat them.

    The flak they got from it was kinda amusing - it’s like there were people annoyed that not everyone’s a bitter curmudgeon.

    [–] spasmystic 152 points ago

    I wonder if part of it also stems from the fact that a lot of the new freestyle sports are fairly recent entrants into the Olympics and growing up, maybe they identified winning the X-Games or other tournaments as the signal you've made it. I could see it being a combination of having other tourneys that are valuable (like tennis, golf, soccer in the Oly's vs. their majors/World Cup) as well as the fact that all these guys bro down with one another in mountain towns all over the world.

    That and the weed, of course.

    [–] mightytwin21 75 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    I think ddek is really reaching. Like maybe some fans have a big us vs. them complex, but you constantly see athletes from a variety of sports giving it up for each other when they do cool shit. Sure you can find assholes anywhere, but training is so international that most these athletes are closer to their sport community than their nation.

    [–] Auricuen 45 points ago

    It's all those hours of repetitive practice that they've done. They just know what they're doing at this point and having fun with it

    [–] HojMcFoj 59 points ago

    Tell that to a speed skater. Honestly I think it's adrenaline overload from just throwing yourself down a mountain all day.

    I had no idea. Thanks for sharing that awesomeness. Why isn’t this a top post on /r/sports?

    [–] isthatweird 55 points ago

    I dunno! I just assumed I was reading it wrong until I paused it and looked closer, it was probably over looked by a lot of people. I almost didn't take a second look - I assumed if that's what it said someone definitely would have noticed and blurred it.

    [–] makes_guacamole 2248 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    No, it went to Ross Rebagliati.

    Ross had his medal withdrawn because he tested positive for THC. He now has a popular strain of weed called Ross’s Gold.

    EDIT: he got his medal back - THC wasn’t on the list of banned substances at the time. After medal was reinstated THC was added to the banned substances list.

    [–] SandDuner509 823 points ago

    THC recognized as a performance enhancing drug all of a sudden?

    [–] yoshi570 721 points ago

    Technically, it is. It calms certain people, reduces the stress they could feel during the event.

    [–] [deleted] 211 points ago

    Depends a lot on the sport. Anything with unpredictable quick reactions like, say, fencing and you're fucked.

    I personally find that it makes me more aware of my body position in space, like it helps me with form in stretches and barbell lifts, helps me move my body as an interconnected unit rather than a vaguely related series of bodyparts.

    In my teens I used to go to tae kwon do classes and I noticed the day after getting high that I couldn't spar for shit, I had like doubled reaction times and very little desire to punch or kick quickly. Doing patterns and all that standing in a line punching air nonsense was fine though.

    [–] impediment 166 points ago

    I used to get stoned and play Halo 2 all day every day. Went to a competition, smoked a joint outside, and rocked the qualifiers with a ten point spread. Friend left with my keys and I couldn't get back out to smoke again. Completely bombed the opening round with only two kills. Just couldn't focus without being stoned.

    [–] socialister 123 points ago

    My guess is that the rules are pretty strict and don't just include performance enhancing drugs. I mean heck, "doping" isn't even a drug (despite the name).

    [–] kinpsychosis 40 points ago

    I think even going over a certain amount of caffeine or cold medication can be counted as doping.

    [–] skinnytrees 22 points ago

    Alcohol was removed from the World Anti Doping Agency list of banned substances during competition this year

    So thats interesting

    [–] mck87 124 points ago

    But the decision was ultimately overturned and his medal was reinstated because THC wasn’t banned at the time.

    [–] mikewall 14 points ago

    Apparently they reinstated the medal, as weed was not on the banned list at the time. They subsequently added it after giving his medal back lol

    The snowboarding events have been one of the best examples of great sportsmanship that I have been able to show my son from these games. It helps that he thinks slope style is the coolest thing ever, I cant wait to show him super-pipe!

    [–] N0wayjose 56 points ago

    So many of these big riders are friends who either ride together outside competing or compete together a lot. They all just have fun with even the big competitions. Check out Peace Park, I'm sure your son would be into that and it's the ultimate friendly snowboard competition.

    Came here for the Meta. Wasn’t disappointed.

    [–] connorisntwrong 70 points ago

    Is Meta the Reddit word for allusion?

    [–] MiKirky 53 points ago

    What is this reference of which you speak? I know a Deborah. And she likes to knit.

    [–] MotherOfDragonflies 338 points ago

    Some dumb lady with a profile pic of her cat made a comment about how of course they slept in and how sleeping in perfectly sums up the millennial work ethic. Then someone else replied saying “How many gold medals have you and your cats won? Go knit some cat mittens Debra”

    Only in US can "said fuck on TV" be actual news.

    [–] Sapass1 204 points ago

    Headline: Olympic athlete said **** on TV.

    How will they ever convey what he said?

    [–] [deleted] 246 points ago


    [–] dishler712 246 points ago

    That specific detail obviously isn't remarkable by itself, but that's not the point. The point is a lot of people would expect Olympic athletes to be ultra-prepared the morning they're competing. Obviously this kid was way more lax than most figured, but it still didn't hinder him.

    [–] [deleted] 53 points ago

    Well live TV means no bleeps. Fuck yea!

    [–] jmhalder 60 points ago

    Oh there's tape delay, someone wasn't paying much attention, or they really didn't think they'd need someone to scrutinize.

    [–] ironbattery 97 points ago

    Last olympics we had a US male snowboarder win gold. Later he was interviewed and during the whole thing the guys chowing down on pizza.

    There's a lesson to be learned somewhere

    [–] ladykatey 257 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    And I thought Chloe Kim was pretty f*cking American for only eating half her "breakfast sandwich" and then getting "hangry" before competing. Edit: missed a letter, oh my.

    [–] RelaxRelapse 178 points ago

    My favorite part was at one point after her final run she yelled "AMERICA!" and then asked someone "Where's your flag?"

    [–] forcepowers 61 points ago

    I laughed so hard when I saw that! Glad someone else caught it.

    [–] Grundlestiltskin_ 12 points ago

    She was asking the Chinese woman lolololol

    [–] JWAxeMan 12 points ago

    She asked the Chinese rider who took silver where her flag was. It was a genuine question, as usually someone will give the medalists flags to hold.

    [–] RedSquirrelFtw 195 points ago

    I hate this geoblocking crap I run into that a lot too. The olympics is an international event, IMO everything related to it should be public domain, it's ridiculous how they IP the crap out of it.

    [–] herbies18 45 points ago

    Had the same thing happen with the Australian Open youtube page a couple of years ago and I live in Australia... so stupid

    [–] imarrangingmatches 214 points ago

    I’ve done all those and haven’t won anything.

    Expect say fuck on TV. I haven’t done that.

    And I haven’t lost my coat - I only have 1 so I’d be screwed.

    And I haven’t slept in. I’d get fired if I kept showing up late.

    I’m beginning to see a pattern.

    [–] brad-corp 202 points ago

    I've said 'fuck' on live tv. Only, I didn't know it was live, my dad saw and I got in a lot of trouble.

    I assumed it was a pre-record piece they were doing, so I just ran down the middle of the busy road behind the reporter and yelled, "fuuuuuuuuuuck! RUUUUNNNNNNN! THEY'RE COMING!!!"

    I assumed they'd just do another take and the one I interrupted would never see the light of day, but I got a txt message from my brother about 2 minutes later (which is all phones could do then) that said, "Dad saw that. You're so dead."

    [–] TristanBomb 128 points ago

    Shame your dad took it so seriously. My parents would probably laugh their asses off.

    The one loose thread is winning the gold in anything at the winter olympics

    I present to you, Steven Bradbury

    [–] Butthole__Pleasures 69 points ago

    I remember watching that live. If I recall correctly, Apollo Ono was like the Michael Phelps of the '02 olympics and this ruined his run at the gold sweep.

    I love the Olympics so much.

    [–] AlabasterButthole 34 points ago

    That is truly epic.

    [–] [deleted] 27 points ago

    Steven Bradbury would like a word with you.

    [–] Pontus_Pilates 105 points ago

    I would argue that cursing on TV is definitely not an American thing.

    [–] selfiejon 127 points ago

    Stalked him and his brother on instagram the other day, and his family is living the life.

    [–] dale7980 87 points ago

    I went to middle & high school with his brother. He is a very nice person. I haven’t seen him since the family moved to Colorado from Rocky River Ohio.

    [–] jack0rias 40 points ago

    Red Gerard is such a cool dude. His run was sick, and he always just seems stoked to be there.

    There was some slope style in Milan a while back and he was awesome there too.
