The 400free seems to have a bad karma. The last 3 Olympic champions had some rough times.
I know, Thorpey’s case was different to the ones of Sun and Park.

I’m not sure what cheating has to do with bad karma?

I am not that convinced that Park has done it on purpose. But my wife says I am sometimes naive. Concerning Sun my opinion is different. I think they knew all the time what they were doing.

Park looks awfully guilty to me, I don’t like to believe it when it comes to champions. I’ve been lucky enough to watch Park many times & he has an incredible stroke & had had some sensational performances but this story is sounding worse by the day….
