Olympics: Coin Tosses Are Now Raaaaacist

See, what happened here is

(AP) Hamlin and Davis were among eight nominees for the flagbearer role, and athletes from each of the eight winter sports federations — bobsled and skeleton, ski and snowboarding, figure skating, curling, biathlon, hockey, speedskating and luge — represented those nominees in a balloting that took place Wednesday night.

Eventually, the final vote was deadlocked at 4-4. Hamlin won a coin toss, the predetermined method of picking a winner if all else failed in the athlete-led process. The U.S. Olympic Committee confirmed the tie, and that voters knew if the tie couldn’t be broken by them the coin toss would have to occur.

Seem pretty clear cut, does it not? Established rules. Perhaps next time they should have gone to 3 on 3 overtime followed by a shoot out? Becaaaaaaaauuuuuuuse

Sour grapes. Whiny. Erin Hamlin is the only American of either gender (yes, there are just two) to win a medal in singles luge. The inclusion of #BlackHistoryMonth2018 shows that Shani was going for the raaaaacism aspect.
