Twitter haters the other Olympic rivals

Pity poor Elise Christie who represents Great Britain in the Sochi Olympic games.  This week she crashed in the finals of the 500 m short track speed skating.  Her fall also cost prohibitive favorite Park Seung-hi of Korea a chance at a gold medal.  It also didn’t help things when she fell and was disqualified in her 1500 Meter race. The response to these events was a number of disturbing tweets from disgruntled Korean fans of Ms. Park.  Ms. Christie’s response was to delete her twitter account.    Pity the Olympic motto which was Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster Higher Stronger).   In the case of Ms. Christie the new motto is Quando Omni Flunkus Mortati (after all fails play dead).
