Yeah, they say "...but he finished" when in reality he was disqualified because his dad helped him. His official place is DNF. So according to the IOC, Visa is Wrong. Dramatic license... even in a commercial.
Ill watch it but as I was thinking about it was reminded of the winter olympics in which I was cheering for the european ski teams over those in the US Ski team. Most of the profiles they did on US Athletes made me think they were complete aholes while some of those competing for europe seemed like 1/2 decent blokes.

summer games used to be interesting until the corporates took over and unloaded more commercial minutes upon us than the actual games.
the worst part will be that you will be teased about the upcoming events that you're interested in, all the while they show you something else less interesting for a couple of hours. at showtime, you'll end up seeing only a few minutes of tantalizing action.
that would be when I lose my interest and flip the channels, then forget about the games.
now, winter olympics, please.
