The Fix Is In!!

Michael Phelps did NOT win his seventh gold last night. Yes, the officials gave him his seventh gold. But, he did NOT win it. Milorad Cavic, the Serbian swimmer touched the wall first.

They replayed the finish over and over again. You can clearly see that Cavic touched the wall first. Even one of the announcers stated that he won the race, not Phelps.

Then cut to Bob Costas. He says that no matter how it looks, Michael Phelps got there first. No matter how it looks Bob? So, if Michael Phelps wasn't even close and someone else touched the wall, should Michael Phelps still have gotten gold? Hell no!! No matter how it looks Bob? It looks exactly how it looks. The Serbian won, but he was screwed out of his gold medal. Cut back to the announcers. One says that normally it would be a toss up. But it's gotta go to the "Magic Man".

The Serbian coaches filed a protest. FINA refused to accept their protest. They're trying to claim that even the Serbians agreed that Phelps won. BULLSHIT!! They wouldn't agree that Michael Phelps won, especially when they believed that their swimmer won. Get off it FINA!!

The fix is in. They couldn't give it to the Serbian because they couldn't take away "history in the making". They couldn't let Michael Phelps settle for silver which he rightfully deserved because that would mean that no medal record would be broken here. They couldn't let that happen. Michael Phelps had to be given the gold, despite the fact that he didn't win.

This is an example of fair play? This isn't cheating? Oh, but don't question the Americans because Americans never cheat. Americans never get things that they don't deserve. Don't question the "greatest Olympian of all time" right? He's the Golden Boy. He's untouchable right? He lost, yet still walked away with gold because as I said, they couldn't let "history" die.

    MAYBE you should actually do some research before you write a stupid blog..or maybe you didn't see the frame where they slowed it down to 1 one thousandth of a second to see that he did CLEARLY touch the wall first. and no one can control who wins the race once they touch the pad at the end of the pool it automatically puts it right up on the screen. no humans involved. maybe next time you should know what the hell you're talking about before you write a big blog accusing people of cheating.

    Maybe you should pay attention to what you're looking at. He did NOT touch the wall first. Period!!

    By the way, I do love how they fail to mention exactly who it is that owns the timing equipment. It just happens to be Omega which is one of Michael Phelp's sponsors, and he promotes their watches. Coincidence? I think not!!
