Olympic medalist Johann Muehlegg and his Demons, er Aliens: "A triple gold medallist who was kicked out of the Winter Olympics for failing a drugs test claims he is being told what to do by aliens. Cross-country skier Johann Muehlegg said the mysterious beings have had a profound effect on his life. "I have seen them," he declared, before insisting he had not taken any drugs. German-born Muehlegg, 31, defected to Spain in 1999 - apparently on the instructions of the aliens." (via BBC Sport)

Wow. Is anyone else glad that Muehlegg wasn't in any of the cross-country events where they carry guns?

You guys are a bunch of insensitive jerks, acting all superior just because you've never done drugs and received instructions from aliens. Mark my words, you'll be first ones probed when the invasion begins. Lets see how smug you are when you've got a milking claw jammed in your colon.

Do the aliens speak Spanish? Oh wait, maybe they did...

No, I think they speak German. The fact that they can't remove two of his medals, nor that they didn't detect this (the drugs, not the aliens) before those races proves that the system has major faults. slightly off-topic: Beckie Scott deserves gold, in my opinion. (No, I'm not saying this because she's Canadian.)
