People will say stupid things (I'm sure you must have noticed that before) haha. Here in Australia we had quite a bit of negative, ignorant press comments made during the Olympics also (mostly about how our athletes weren't winning a lot of gold). It's always easy for others to look for a negative & although I don't know the athlete you're speaking of... just the fact that she has risen to the top and is able to represent your country on the International stage, unfortunately makes her a target for those more in touch with their own insecurities than the incredible achievements of others.

You shouldn't get so upset... the things people say, are a reflection of their own self image and say more about themselves and their own insecurities, than about those people they're aiming their comments at.

You have every right to be proud of your race... the rest of the world sees you as a strong people who endured and fought relentlessly for your freedoms & this young athlete is testament to that courage.
