Postby GDAWG » Mon Jul 08, 2013 2:08 pm

Cuban hurdler Orlando Ortega was suspended by his national federation for 6 months for serious misconduct. That means he will not be able to compete also at the World Championships in Moscow. His coach Kelvin Antunez was removed from the office, Cuban media are informing.

Cuba is doing everything in its power to not get a gold medal in Moscow it seems. Them and St. Kitts are collectively insane.
