This seems far fetched to me. Anybody know more? There must be more than this reason for the entire track team to be disqualified. And if it was simply because he pointed at the sky, I have to agree with the father. They would dismiss most basketball players and football players for their little victory dances if this were the rule everywhere. We should let people celebrate, even if the celebration is religious. Some would say especially if the celebration is religious due to our legal freedom of religious practice.

Yeah. Brainwashed is the human condition, no doubt. We are terribly susceptible, especially when young.

I did some research. There is no indication from the young man this was a gesture to god or a 'we are No 1' gesture.

There is only speculation from the dad, a bias source at best.

Destined to be Internet fodder for at least 3 days. The left and right are already at each other's throats over this story.

Ruminating on the left and the right. What's interesting about this case is that it could force the left into a position usually held by the right.
