No more russian water?

A russian high jumper has been accused by fellow athletes of drinking red bull and vodka at a recent meet in switzerland, and now the governing body of track and field wants an explanation. I don't know what he's going to say, but i think it should go something along the lines of "Hey i'm russian ya doofus." Plus now the meet won't pay his expenses. There is nothing illegal about drinking alcohol and it doesn't break any of the International rules. If i was him i would show up with a bottle of vodka and say You can't seriously want to ban alcohol, it tastes great, makes women appear more attractive, and makes a person virtually invulnerable to criticism. Now he did miss everyone one of his jumps, which is some cause for concern, but even so if he's not breaking any rules you have no cause to fine him, and it seems to me no legal grounds not to pay him for his participation.

Plus if they had been paying attention they would have seen that together with his vodka he was drinking redbull. And as everyone knows redbull givers you wings. So clearly he was just trying to get over the bar using his redbull wings.

I'm sure it violates an ambiguous rule about sportsmanlike conduct. But of course he should do what you said. I'd love nothing more than for him to take a stand. Well, I guess I'd love a pepperoni pizza more, and a bunch of other foods, and entertainment outlets, but it would be great!

well, the article didn't mention any ambigious rule which he was being charged with having broken. It's possible that such a rule exist, i don't know. but i'm pretty sure that if instead of missing all his jumps, he had made a couple and ended up in the middle of the pack nobody would have said anything. So this is less about what he did than about results. If that's the case, than just say this guy sucks and don't invite him to future meets.
