NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE, SISTER!:

Pole dancers seek Olympics games' recognition (Eric Talmadge, 3/01/10, ASSOCIATED PRESS)

The 2010 Winter Olympics wound to an end yesterday, and for Japan's Mai Sato, watching all those gold medals being handed out in Vancouver was a bittersweet experience.

Ms. Sato knows the demands of being the best. In her world, blisters are the rule, bruises a way of life. And the training five hours a day, five days a week.

Ms. Sato, the world champion in her sport, is as athletic, dedicated and competitive as the Olympians representing their nations at the games. And she thinks it's high time her discipline, too, got some real recognition.

Still, pole dancing? In the Olympics?


I don't think CNBC would be showing curling next Olympiad...
