Apparently, not even an am 8-time Olympic medalist competing in this year's Olympics is safe from those who feel free to make comments about someone else's weight. Australia's Leisel Jones was subjected to incredibly insensitive and completely inappropriate remarks from the critical press in her country, but when given the opportunity to respond, she handled it like a true champion.
Why any reporter anywhere ever feels it is alright to inject his/her personal opinion instead of just sticking to the facts is beyond me, but perhaps this incident might give at least a few of them pause to better consider their words. One can only hope...
