Sometimes I forget about Akwasi Frimpong, one of my favorite athletes, but he’s been in the news quite a bit lately. Ghana Gas, Ghana’s State Gas Company, just signee him into a four year sponsorship.

Yes, that's what we're used from Mexican winter athletes      

Lol.

Some irony: Humphries alleges that the abuse comes from :USA Todd Hays, the Canadian coach. He previously coached the women’s US teams and apparently two athletes in the US filled harassment claims against him.

Mainly I think besides the toxic relationship with bobsled Canada, I think she choose the US to be closer to her husband. What kills me is how ungrateful some Canadian’s are for her achievement. She gave you two gold medal ffs!

The way some many Canadians are treating Kaillie Humphries is disgraceful, disrespectful, and deplorable. She won your country 3 Olympic medals (two of which were gold, and one those was in Canada!), 3 overall World Cup titles, 2 world championships, and world championship bronze while being the female driver of a four-man bobsled! It’s so disgusting to see Canadian’s saying things like “good riddance”, “I hope she gets her ass kicked”, “I hope she never wins again”, and calling her the Antonio Brown of bobsled. Notably these are mostly men saying these things, so I honestly do blame her for leaving, but people need to grow the fuck up. She didn’t murder someone, she didn’t dope, she didn’t cheat, she rose to fame representing Canada, she didn’t abuse her teammates, she didn’t attack anyone. Ahh! 
Why do white dudes (excluding myself, cause I woke.) got to be so bad? Bros, be complaining about women or anything progressive all the time. “Women can’t run farther than 800m”, “Black people aren’t actually human”, etc. White dudes are fucking insane. I thought this whole white nationalist thing was an American, and maybe in some cases, a European problem, but this is just insane coming from Canada. 
 

I really do wish Humphries the best, though I highly doubt the environment over here is better...

 

I still love Canada, but y’all need to chill the fuck out and go play ice hockey to take out your anger on each other.

And when did she do that?

I got the mixed team and mixed 4-man confused :facepalm:. Sometimes I really am just an idiot. Thanks, for correcting me though :thumbup:

She did drive a 4-man sled in the World Cup, like Elana Meyers Taylor, although that wasn't particularly impressive in terms of her driving skills, mostly hitting every possible wall.

And very excited waiting for the arrival of her baby I might add :d. Half her posts are about that.

So what? She is still a traitor. You turn your back on the entire nation because of Todd Hays? Really? No wonder people are upset. I hope the fans give her hell and then some! Narcisstic woman deserves no sympathy.
