Tinder Town – athletes look for love online in Sochi
Sochi Olympics TV moment: The athletes have been professionalized, and so has the celebrity culture around them. Yet the clock rolled back, for a minute, on Monday night, when TV viewers tuned in to watch Steven Holcomb and his brakeman Steve Langton win a bronze medal in the two-man bobsled. Even if, it should be said, some of those TV viewers were mainly just waiting around for the ice dancing competition to start.
The Germans and Swiss are amazingly dominant at the two-man bobsled:
Everybody knew you as the wife of a famous man, Everybody who knew said, “There goes Dixon’s girl again. This is an insidious trope where a female character’s success is undermined by the narrative of a male character providing advantages necessary for them. She’s usually framed as someone’s sister, girlfriend or love interest. And if she’s a military or political leader of some sort, then you can bet that she got the position with help from her father or another male relative.
The story implies her membership is due to motivation and training by her powerful male relatives who are active on the same field. In short, a personal, emotional relationship with a mentor is needed, not just a professional one driven by her own independent ambitions. This character stands in contrast to Self-Made Man , where a character usually male , but not always was able to accomplish goals well beyond their advantages.
In short, this is another example of Double Standard. Due to stereotypes about separate gender roles, writers will often use this trope to justify to viewers presumed male why they should care about the female character at all, as it is assumed the female character would not have taken an interest had it not been for the presence of that male character. Going hand with this is Men Act, Women Are , which is about what comes from the man, and where the woman comes from.

Their daughter, Ksenia Makarova, now 20, also became a top-ranked figure skater. But, lacking American citizenship, she competed for Team Russia in Vancouver in On Friday, six months before the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, two generations of the Makarov family switched sides for good.
For the Makarovs, the full embrace of citizenship comes as their adopted homeland is locked in tensions with their country of birth.
They won two medals — one silver, one bronze — in Sochi, and this year’s team includes several returning athletes including Steve Langdon and Chris Fogt. Advertisement 18 of 20 Facebook.

Canada’s athletes in Sochi: Meet skier Daria Gaiazova
Life sure has changed for Nick Goepper now that he is part of the elite group of U. The year-old Indiana native returned from Sochi a changed man this week, and the explosion of followers on his Twitter profile isn’t the only difference for the young ski phenom. Garnering attention from major sponsors such as Red Bull even before the Olympics, Goepper has been quick to make the most of his sudden celebrity status by launching a Twitter contest to win a date with the bronze-medal-winning slopestyle skier — garnering a slew of both sweet and strange responses.
The reaction I’ve gotten is crazy — people are singing songs, dancing, writing long essays on why I should take them out on a date. There have been a couple of inappropriate replies and some cool ones.
As of the Sochi Games, Dartmouth-affiliated athletes had competed in the Winter Olympics, winning a total of 13 gold, nine silver, and six bronze medals. That is more medals than many countries have accrued in the Winter Games, including Australia, Poland, and Great Britain.
French financial prosecutors confirm investigation into Tokyo bid Read more Dr Grigory Rodchenkov, the director of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory from , claimed he helped dozens of Russian athletes with a cocktail of banned substances including metenolone, trenbolone and oxandrolone which he mixed with alcohol. To improve the absorption of the steroids and shorten the detection window, he dissolved the drugs in Chivas whisky for male athletes and Martini vermouth for women.
Among those Rodchenkov claimed to have helped cheat were the bobsleigher Alexander Zubkov, who won two golds in Sochi; the cross-country skier Alexander Legkov, who won gold and silver; and Alexander Tretiakov, who won gold in the skeleton competition. To do this they set up a shadow laboratory in Sochi, having found a way to break into supposedly tamper-proof bottles. Rodchenkov said that several weeks before Sochi, an FSB agent gave him a previously sealed bottle that had been opened, its uniquely numbered cap intact.
During the night, when no one else was around, tainted samples from Russian athletes would be passed through a small hole in the floor to this shadow laboratory, where they were replaced with clean urine from athletes collected months earlier. The elaborate procedure allowed Russian athletes to continue taking banned substances during the Games, given them an advantage over their rivals. The Russians topped the medal table in Sochi with 33 medals, including 13 golds, a stark improvement on the previous Winter Olympics in Vancouver where they finished only 11th with 15 medals.
None of their athletes were caught doping in Sochi. However Rodchenkov said that as many as dirty urine samples were expunged during the Games. He told Fogel the Russian sports ministry was actively involved in the giving its athletes performance-enhancing drugs — and hiding the consequences — and that he met with the deputy sports minister, Yuri Nagornykh, at least once a week. He told the agency Tass: Everything was under the control of international experts, from the collection of samples to their analysis.
A report, written by an Independent Commission led by Dick Pound, found that Rodchenkov, was required to meet a security officer from the FSB weekly to update him on the mood of Wada.
