IOC correct to ignore craven Iranian

Saturday: Iranian Swimmer Pulls Out of Heat That Includes Israeli

The IOC contemplated sanctioning Iran for this display of cowardice, but in the end decided to believe that the Iranian swimmer had taken ill. I think that was the right decision. By resigning from the race, the Iranian hurt himself, not the Israeli, while also making things eaiser for the 7 remaining competitors. If a badly behaving child wishes to help others by shooting himself in the foot, the correct approach is to ignore him.
