Spain's Olympic Basketball Team, "preparing for Beijing"
Spain's Federation Cup Tennis Team
These look like the kind of hideously ill-advised photographs one might expect to be revealed by chance after a long trawl through various social networking sites. However, they came from Marca, one of Spain's best selling daily newspapers, and the official website of the Spanish Tennis Federation, respectively. If you're going to do something quite so stupid, why do it quite so publicly?!
It must be pointed out that China is not merely an innocent victim here. I happened to be watching the BBC's Olympic news roundup which is accessible via the 'red button', which showed the moment China won (yet another) gold at table tennis. When one of his German opponents hit the ball out to finish the match, one of the Chinese players celebrated the victory with a Nazi salute, coupled with a finger under the nose to denote a Hitler-esque moustache.
While I'm sure table tennis does not gather in a massive television audience, I cannot be the only person to notice this- it was pretty blatant, and the BBC have been playing it on loop all day! However, I can find no mention of it on the internet, and so thought I'd do the honours.
I really would recommend the red button for the Olympics though. None of the tennis was covered by BBC One or Two, and many other exciting sports miss out on premier schedule slots. I got to watch GB triumph over South Africa in one of the men's hockey pool matches, a bittersweet victory as my school's visiting hockey coach, Marvin Bam, was playing in defence for SA. That said, it was nice to see his face again- Google him and you'll see why!
