South Koreans are just out to get Americans. Their anti-American sentiment is well-known. I traveled to South Korea myself and the first words spoken to me (by a customs official) was a vicious: "I HATE YOUR COUNTRY!" (Hello, if it weren't for us, North Korea would have long ago conquered them, but we get no thanks for that.) I am tired of the Korean Olympians using Ohno as their whipping boy and attempting to tarnish his reputation. Ohno won fair and square and is the superior skater, but the Koreans always have to have a hissy and launch a smear campaign against our American medalists.

well ... i guess we all forget about what happened in '02 ... wasn't it a south korean that fell in to ohno then, and didn't he have a similar "that's the sport" attitude? that is what i recall ... tell the s. koreans to quit whining like a bunch of babies
