A great selection of "no nos" from past Olympic Games medalists.
Discouraging that this great world sports competition has been tainted so much with controversy.
Congrats to Suzanne for her research and helpful clues.

Thanks for a fun, interesting and very educational WP, Suzanne! I enjoyed it a lot. Very well-written, as even anyone with little knowledge of sports (like me) would be able to decipher your phrases due to their logic.

I was cruising along pretty well, with less than 30 in the first four.


Little wonder I tank so bad in vocabulary.

Excellent puzzle. Thanks. Clues were great.

Great puzzle and your phrasing was really fun to figure out. I remembered all but one of the incidents.
