Someone posted this already, but I was disturbed that the US Olympic Boxing team put him in this situation of trying to make a lower right that he hadn't competed in for 2 events. There needs to be some changes.

Coach complaining that the facility is extremely cold with too much air conditioning and his fighters can't sweat the way they're supposed to. That is ridiculously G A Y

Wups, I totally never saw the thread. The worst thing they could have done was give these boxers an Air Conditioned facility.

From what others are saying the kid wasn't sweating normally anyway and they all noticed it and told him he needed to rehydrate, yet no one monitored him as he ran around the Olympic complex

Thats not good at all to be truth. Training in a cold gym? That ****ing BLOWS BALLS. I hate doing anything in a hardcore air conditioned gym its ****ing horrible. The sauna isn't practical, its so much better to actually sweat in the gym not in a sauna.
