For those of you suffering from Olympic withdrawal pains, noted sportsman Fidel Castro provides us with a probably prescient preview of the 2012 London games:
"There will be European chauvinism, judge corruption, buying of brawn and brains, unpayable costs and a strong dose of racism,"
here is the original text in case you think I'm translating badly:
Allí habrá chovinismo europeo, corrupción arbitral, compra de músculos y cerebros, costo impagable y una fuerte dosis de racismo.
Can I get an Amen?
(an article in English, including Fidel defending the Cuban athlete who kicked a referee in the face is here)
