Heavy Stuff: DQ’d From The Olympics

February 17th, 2010 | 18 comments | Posted by Diana

Aya Yasuda, a Japanese athlete at her first Olympics, was disqualified on Monday from the Women’s Luge competition in Vancouver.





No, she didn’t get busted for juicing. And she wasn’t lying about her gender. She didn’t screw an Olympic judge. She didn’t put a hit on any of her opponents.

But she did accidentally bring too much weight with her to the Games.

Lemme ‘splain. From Yahoo! Sports:

“Yasuda, who tips the scales at a slender 60 kg (132 lbs), miscalculated the additional weight lugers are allowed to carry as ballast and failed the compulsory weigh-in after her first run at the Whistler Sliding Centre.

‘During a weight check at the finish of run one the athlete’s additional weight exceeded the maximum allowed which was 13.1 kilos,” race organisers said. “Her actual weight was 13.3 kilos.’”


Athletic disqualifiquasians don’t often shock me, but darn it all–this one does. I mean, an Asian busted for bad math? That’s like, UNTHINKABLE!

    That sucks. Can you imagine the response from her hard ass Asian parents? Hell, the response from her hard ass Asian country? I remember Midori Ito apologizing to all of Japan for her Olympic “failure”.

  2. Diana says:

    OOF. Don’t want to imagine, for the same reason I won’t watch Hostel. Too much!

  3. Jen says:

    @Cindy–I think the response from her parents will be something like, “Dude. You got fat.”

  4. jasmine says:

    So what I want to know is what does she do now? Does she stay in Canada and hang until the closing ceremonies, hooking up with hotties of other nations because it’s not like she has anything better to do? Or does she go back to Japan and start making her apologies?

    PS: When I read “DQ’d From The Olympics”, I totally thought of Dairy Queen. I was letting my fat doing my thinking again!
