    (GRN)Greece's triple-jump champion was expelled from the Olympics after posting a tasteless tweet about Africans and the West Nile virus.
    Hellenic Olympic Committee officials announced Voula Papachristou wouldn't travel to London after she tweeted a joke about African immigrants.
    On Monday, the track athlete posted a tweet reading, "with so many Africans in Greece, at least the West Nile mosquitos will be eating food from their own home." The comments created an uproar on Greek social media. Papachristou didn't address the criticism on Twitter for two days.
    Greece later announced it would place Papchristou "outside the Olympic team for statements contrary to the values and ideas of the Olympic movement."

    That joke isn't really funny, or offensive for that matter.

    It's not but Howard probably wouldn't even allow it on his show nowadays. It could offend someone somewhere.....

    There is a whole lot of in your face racism that goes on in soccer from what I gather.

    Soccer gets a lot of heat from it.....that and it's maniac fans who riot and beat people and break windows. Soccer seems to be the proxy for international warfare today.

    Soccer and the Olympics are the two main international competitions. I think the Olympics are probably way touchy and overzealous in responding to this sort of thing for all of the obvious reason (like current or hundreds or thousands of years of beefs involving various countries) and in part and of late not wanting to reflect what goes on in international futbol.

    No matter how stupid this seems, I think all of these athletes take some kind of sensitivity or conduct class or something at some point as they're going off to the olympics and representing their countries. You really should probably know better than to say or tweet anything that can be even remotely construed as racist or controversial. It's a helluva way to have your dream crushed.....
