  1. Surprised you guys are not familiar with Dick Pound already. He’s the guy who took down Lance Armstrong, and he’s also the guy who got Russia suspended from the Olympics. He was also behind the IOC reforms after the Salt Lake City bribery scandal.

  2. Headline should be

    ## Olympics delayed by Dick Pound

  3. Mr. Pound is also an accomplished author with a sense of humor:

  11. This sucks so much for all the athletes but hopefully it’s not postponed for long. Definitely the right call regardless

  12. It looks like Dick Pound is taking a pretty solid position on this; when it comes to athlete safety he won’t be beat. It’s great to see someone standing tall and proud at attention, going head first for the right decision in the midst of this sticky situation we’re in right now.
