“Fuck the West!” said the organizers of South Africa’s biggest and most famous Marathon race and actually permitted Russian athletes to join the legendary event.
Even if I’d condemn Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine I’d never forbid Russian athletes from participating in my event. Sports and politics don’t mix! Forgot the old Olympic motto, Western sports authorities?
See, that’s one more reason for why everyone loves cuddly sweet and totally harmless South Africa while the whole world has mixed feelings about the Ukraine and nothing but disdain for America.
