You would think an Olympic athlete would be above whining

William Teach lays into Shani Davis, a phenomenal athlete, and, at least in this case a whiny little bitch

The other day, we learned that U.S. Olympic contender Shani Davis pretty much stated that losing a coin toss for the right to lead the U.S. delegation in the Olympics opening ceremonies. What happened during the opening ceremonies? (via Twitchy)

The only “controversy” is Davis acting like a petulant child. Like a poor sport. One of the reasons I love baseball and the NHL is that they won’t tolerate poor sportsmanship on the playing surface. Hit a home run and pose? Get ready for a pitch behind your head. Showboat on the ice? Expect to get run, and possibly have to fight.

Again, shouldn’t an athlete who has obviously worked incredibly hard to be so elite be above this? Come on man!
