Nigerian Women Become First African Bobsled Team Ever To Qualify For Olympics

 

See, I went into the comments for the obvious jokes (so...which one is named Yul Brenner?), then the first guy comes right out of left field with a Nigerian email scam joke and just killed me.

Yes, Nikki, if your boss calls Kim Jong-Un fat one too many times in the next month and South Korea is a sheet of glass, it will be unlikely that we send a delegation.

ESPN: Olympic men's hockey FAQ: No NHL players in Pyeongchang, but plenty of on-ice intrigue awaits

 

It's a return to the old days of Olympic hockey, where the Russians (Soviets) are the heavy favorite thanks to a team loaded with KHL players.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has overturned 39 lifetime bans imposed by the IOC on Russian athletes determined by the IOC to have violated anti-doping rules as part of a state-sponsored doping campaign at the 2014 Sochi Games. Twenty-eight of the athletes were said to have been banned without sufficient evidence, and are free to petition the IOC for inclusion in the PyeongChang Games; the remaining 11, while found to have violated anti-doping rules, are currently ineligible only for the PyeongChang Games.
