Sven Kramer: Gold Medalist in Bitchassness

February 23, 2010

Dutch Gold Medalist in Long Track Speed Skating, bread-holding hottie, and corporate shill, Sven Kramer can add Total Bitchass to the list of his official titles, judging from an interview with a Dutch reporter.

The video has predictably been yanked from YouTube by the IOC [I should have blogged this days ago, I know], but, to surmise, while being asked to identify himself and his country by an NBC reporter after winning the Gold in the 5,000 m event, Kramer asked quite simply: “Are you stupid? Hell no, I’m not going to do that.”

Kramer saw it as a slight, going on to say during an interview for Dutch broadcasting:

“Come on, this is ridiculous. You’ve just become Olympic gold medal winner. She was there when it happened and then you have to sum up your whole biography, etc. She’s crazy.”

The level of bitchassness that boy was giving off during the Dutch interview was enough for me to invoke the power of the Diddy:

It can be argued that the American reporter should have known who she was talking to before the tape was rolling, but she stated on tape that it was for identification purposes [for editing]. NBC makes some absolute crap decisions, that is for certain, but this wasn’t really one of them.

For the record, my little loaf-fondling loon, I know you’re regarded as a rock star in your home country, but for most American audiences, Long Track Speed Skating is something that’s only paid attention to for two weeks every four years. Might want to tone down the sassy, boyfran.

    Also, did you see Kramer’s reaction after getting disqualified in the 10K today? He crossed lanes over a pylon, got dq’ed, and blamed his coach.

    Are you kidding? How fucking hard can it be to look up a wiki or IOC profile on the athlete for the editing process? I wouldn’t have any interest in answering questions by someone who couldn’t even look at the winnerboard to see what country I was from.

    Sven Kramer is a legend and deserves praise for slapping a shitty, half hearted network in the face. Fucking showing figure skating during the USA vs. Canada game, what the fuck NBC.

    Shit article, rewrite it.
