Anybody left who still pretends the Olympics are about international good will and the purity of amateur competition?
Gold medalist Laura Wilkinson has sued to gain a synchronized diving spot that would remove Elwood's 15-year-old Mary Beth Dunnichy from the U.S. Olympic team.
[. . .]
The 10-page filing asks that Wilkinson and Jessica Livingston be placed on the team in the synchro 10-meter platform event, or that another competition be held against Dunnichay and Haley Ishimatsu.
[. . .]
Even though Wilkinson and Livingston had a slightly higher average at a selection camp, 329.88 to 327.32, a panel picked the Ishimatsu/Dunnichay team because it had the highest single score (346.98) of four rounds and a higher "projected competition score," according to the complaint.
I wonder why nobody's done a reality show yet in which the contestants try to come up with the most inappropriate things to sue someone over. No, that wouldn't do -- it would threaten the integrity of the criminal justice system, wouldn't it?
