Boy, did Leonard really step in it. A reader sent me this one.
From The Next Web Asia:
"... The Olympic brouhaha surrounding Chinese swimming sensation Ye Shiwen just ratcheted up several notches. Chinese Web celebrity and former Google China head Kaifu Lee temporarily posted on his much-followed microblog account the personal information of John Leonard, the Team USA swimming coach who had questioned the legitimacy of Ye’s record-breaking performance. ..."
Right now everything that is "John Leonard" is on the radar. Page views to my scuffle with John Leonard here at the blog are unusually high. I think it is high time that Leonard apologizes before his reputation becomes more infamous.
This just in, Leonard won't step down or apologize and he has even stepped up his comments. He gave these comments to Yahoo Sports in an interview:
"If people don't speak out when they see something suspicious, the public is going to think nonsensical splits were real," Leonard said. "Then doping is going to have free reign for anything we don't know about right now. ..."
How about that last sentence? Then it gets worse. Go read the article and face palm.
