International: Ethics test before getting a gold medal, India to get a free pass, athlete tweets

  • Will the IOC require athletes to pass an ethical test before awarding them a gold medal?
    IOC officials might need an ethics test far more than the athletes do.

  • India might not have to qualify for FIH tournaments as greedy FIH looks to score big with Indian sponsors. I actually think it is a great idea. Revenues generated and media interest will help field hockey develop around the world.

  • Five of the most memorable athlete tweets of this year. I wish Nepali athletes were on Twitter. A bunch of them are on Facebook but do not write anything interesting.
