Kenyan Leader Labels Losers

When the COC sits down to write a public assessment (for example) of how Canada did at an Olympic games, they usually try to take the sunniest view possible. Where Canadian athletes did poorly, the COC just sticks to the facts and statistics of the matter. There is an implicit assumption that the athletes did the best that they could at the time.

Not so, apparently, in Kenya, where the government this week received a report that accused some athletes of malingering, giving up, and competing only for financial gain.
