Somewhere, the worlds tiniest violin is being played.

Tough luck. Hecould've always walked in under the white flag of the IOC! LOL.

While waiting for the situation to change, Kolesnikov said he wanted to focus on setting "new world records".

Never heard of the guy... and at this rate maybe never well. Frankly I think we can just chalk him up to being just one more victim of the war his country started.. along w/ the many many people of Ukraine who have quite a bit more real world concerns...
