I highly suggest Dan Wetzel's column on Usain Bolt and the IOC, link here. Best short sports piece I've read in a long time. Any article that contains the phrase "slap around like rag dolls" is bound to be readable.

They can pout and preen, cheat, throw bean balls, file wild complaints, break promises that got them a host bid, whatever they want. They can take turns slapping Rogge and his cronies around like rag dolls as long as the dinner with a good wine list gets paid. .."
