    Must completely agree Tom.

    It’s decisions like this which makes masks —which are helpful —seem more political than anything.

    These athletes spent the whole week maskless only to wear a mask for the anthems when they are 6 feet apart from just two other people on the podium.

    Having the athletes placing medals around their own necks also deserves some dogging’.

    # Too much.
