A reader going by the name of Bob left the following comment below which gives a different story to what happened to Gretta:
You guys are so simple minded. You are discussing based on what RRA ( Grettaâ€™s club) president wrote in behalf of Gretta , trying to attack the National Olympic Committee and the Lebanese Athletic Federation ( because he was banned for one year the result of his behavior), and of course attacking the coach of Gretta, because he never wanted her to be coached by someone who doesnâ€™t work for his club, on whom he cannot impose his authority and with whom he had many conflicts and finally he got an opportunity to revenge over the media.
Grettaâ€™s coach is a happily married man with the most gorgeous wife and enjoying a new born babe. He trains her since 2009. Anyone who knows him and knows Gretta will make fun of the articles written in the newspapers.
Gretta and her president reacted very fast without even knowing why she was sent back. Relying on gossips instead of waiting for the report which the NOC and LAF will post soon about what really happened in London.
She could have came back and remained silent until a report was delivered , then they could reply and react.
Gretta went to the Olympics because she is the best female athlete in Lebanon, but she was absolutely not excited to race. And who are close to her might have read her status on facebook. â€œNo goals , no expectations , but enjoy..â€
Since day one she didnâ€™t submit to her training plan, she only trained once then she disappeared from the sight of the officials and her coach. The rest of the Lebanese Olympians were always with their team and officials, like any other Olympian in the village, because everyone is there to raise the name of his country and they follow a strict discipline.
Gretta wanted to have complete freedom and be busy socializing and having fun. No one saw her face after day 2, and they could only find her with this Irish trainer around midnight , 3 days in row and lunchtime the day of her race. They remained silent despite the chef wanted to go and rebuke her but many stopped him twice. Her coach is a Doctor and runs a medical center, he left his work and went there for her to be super ready for the race and do a personal best at least.
Her coach warned her that he will write a report that she is always absent from the sight of everybody and not submitting to the plan (trainings,physio, nutrition, rest, focus etc) designed for the camp. She didnâ€™t care about it, and continued neglecting the rules. The day of the race, in the morning her coach wrote a report about Gretta not submitting to the plan and never training and being always absent, therefore he will decline from coaching her. The Federation will post the report of her coach and everybody will see that thereâ€™s absolutely nothing of what is mentioned in the newspapers.
Lunch time again they saw her with the Irish guy, and during the pre-race warm up, her coach went to the stadium and found her in the Irish boot , wearing green jacket exactly like the Irish team, and being coached for pre-competition by the Irish guy. Grettaâ€™s coach warned the Irish guy that what is happening is illegal and the Olympic committee can take severe action against such behavior and left. The Irish guy followed Grettaâ€™s coach and tried to convince him that he doesnâ€™t have intention to coach her and that Gretta told him different story and apologized a hundred time.
By that time, The officials arrived to the warm up area to watch Gretta preparing for the race. They met Grettaâ€™s coach arguing with the Irish coach. Finally they saw Gretta sitting in the Irish boot wearing green like them. (Gretta didnâ€™t realize the officials were on track watching her). The NOC president lost his mind and wanted to go and stop her from racing and send her back to Lebanon on the first plane. many stopped him from doing so and asked him to allow her at least to race. One of the federation members took a picture of her in the Irish boot wearing like them. (All the Lebanese team, at least the day of the race wore Lebanese Red jacket written LEBANON on the back). Gretta went to stadium with the green jacket and no one could guess which country does she represent if it wasnâ€™t announced. Of course no one expected her to run well after all.
After the race the NOC and the LAF called her and took her badge and claimed that she will go back to Lebanon on the first plane.
I guess you all can assume why she was sent back after the accumulation of many irresponsible acts. Being hurt and angry, she imagined by her own the scenario that might have happened and reacted through her club presidentâ€™s announcement.
Soon the NOC and the LAF will post all details.
I am sorry but listening to a version by someone close to the coach or the Lebanese delegation isn’t also helping too. I’ve refrained to posting what I heard from some people I generally trust because I am waiting for an official statement but what you are saying is not accurate.
There is a reason why Gretta wasn’t excited to race in the Olympics and a reason why she wasn’t training properly and staying away from her coach. Also, the Olympic village turned into a sex village and many athletes go there to have a good time since it’s a unique experience and definitely don’t stay around their coaches. That’s not something Gretta did alone and it’s not the first time she does it, however that doesn’t mean she’s not a professional athlete.
Her coach had the chance to go to the Olympics. I doubt that he did it for Gretta only. It’s the best opportunity anyone could possibly have so don’t tell me he did it for Gretta.
As for the Irish team’s story, it is clear again that there is a valid reason why she didn’t want to train with her coach, which some have claimed to be sexual harassment, and even if there wasn’t, I still don’t see any reason why she should have been banned. He lost his mind because she was sitting with the Irish team wearing a green jacket?? WOW what a crime!
Speaking of jackets, did the federation provide jackets for the athletes in the first place? Because many athletes complained about not having an official costume in the opening day.
All in all, your version proves yet again that there was something wrong happening between the coach and Gretta and I hope things will be clarified 100% and not ignored and left behind just like everything else in Lebanon.
It’s not a joke when an athlete accuses her coach of sexual harassment. It’s serious whether she is lying or she’s right.
Najib my dear, u r claiming the Olympic village a sex village? and confirming that Gretta many times behaved like this previously? Do u have an idea about the rules? Olympic games are the symbol of decency and discipline and hard work. what u r claiming inst it shameful for the Olympic games?
Athletes do not go there to have sex Najib! who goes there for sex is shameful.
Yes Gretta had Lebanese costume. And the sexual harassment word is created by Roger Bejjani and not Gretta. The coach has been training Gretta since years and they travel together very often. Now u wanna make people believe these stupid words of accusation? they r written out of hater and anger without measuring the consequences. And as i mentioned , soon the Federation will post a report when they come back from London. Therefore don’t blindly try to defend about what u r not sure of.
Its a shame for them to talk dirty over the newspapers. No one has some ethics? u read the article? how can the ugly words match the subject? out of nowhere with no connection with the subject these words were claimed.
You seemed to have missed all the news articles on sex in the village
Are you for real man? Check the links Mark posted. The Olympics experience is one of a kind and u have tens of thousands of athletes all in one big village, going out and socializing and eventually getting laid. It happens almost every time but this year it’s gone too far and everyone’s been posting about it.
Many spoke of sexual harassment aside from Bejjani and your story is not very convincing as there’s no reason for a professional athlete like Gretta to skip training or avoid her coach just like that. As for the federation, I am not sure how credible their report is with all due respect specially that they are not around their athletes all the time and probably are briefed by the coach or athlete.
Again something ain’t right about what happened and it’s very shameful for the coach to report his athlete’s behavior to the Olympics officials. No matter what she has done wrong, that’s not the way to behave and I can’t believe that Gretta wouldn’t listen to any of the Lebanese Olympic federation, specially the highly respected president, that is if they bothered talking to her before she left.
Like I said, I have more details to this story but I will just wait for official reports for now.
Najib, u have details from the mouth of Gretta, but when the official report comes out from the Federation, u will hear details from the mouth of each and every eye and ear witness…
Regarding why Gretta disappeared , ok i will give u some details as i got them from the witness who was there. Apparently Gretta planned for a fight with her coach in order to take full freedom and not being asked where is she going, coming, what eating when sleeping etc… ( who knows Gretta knows well what i am talking about).
It was supposed to be the second day of training, when Gretta and her coach agreed they would go to track for training after watching men 100m round 1.
Gretta’s room is downstairs, immediately going out of men block, and the salon where the coach and the Federation’s witness member were sitting is on the first floor.
When men round 1 ended on tv, Gretta came to the door from downstairs and called the name of her coach. He replied he’s there, she said ok and left. Her coach was ready to go to training. but thought Gretta wants to make sure he is there and go prepare herself for training and come back. Max 3 minutes after , she came upstairs to the salon, and shouted very aggressively on her coach, in the presence of the federation member, why he is not down and that she is waiting on the road since more than 15 minutes. Both of the guys were shocked what happened to her and why she is acting like that. Her coach replied why she is shouting when he doesn’t have a clue she got ready, as 3 minutes earlier she came and only called his name and left. In reply she told him ” I have many things to do i am busy” (funnily what could be the “thing to do which cannot wait a minute and becomes a priority over the training in such a place as the Olympic village). Anyway, her behavior was totally out of logic. Then she continued shouting and saying:” U r coming or not” with the most ugly way possible. He replied not to talk with him like this. On this , she turned her back and left. and since then, she disappeared and never talked to her coach again and was never seen in the village anymore but the late night in the dinner hall with the Irish guy every midnight. The issue is not about with whom she was @ midnights, but her crazy behavior which is very common with people nearest to her. The federation guy is witness to that and was very shocked and asked the coach how could he train a person with such ethics?
This is the beginning of the rest of the story i have written. Now it is obvious that Gretta is dear to u and u want to defend her even if she lies to u. But what i have just written have eye and ear witness.
About the funny sexual part, The coach trains Gretta since years and they traveled together very often. I mean u guys r talking as if Gretta is 12 year old girl. Whats the matter with u guys? why u drag the story to a dirty one? Anything we write just to save our neck and revenge? Gretta spoke about the report of her coach, without even having a clue what is written inside , but only giving space to her wild imagination. When the official FED report comes, they will surely attach a copy of the report and everybody will see that whats written inside has absolutely nothing to do with what Gretta and her boss r imagining.
I have seen the report and i know what i am saying. Don’t u think that her coach could have made a scandal of Gretta if he wanted to? did he involve himself in dirty talks? becoz he is silent, u guys r taking advantage?
Gretta should have acted smarter than this. after all, u guys r just having fun, but she is hurting herself and she will know later that what she did claim feeding her
imagination ruined her career and her name.
No one wishes bad for her, but she is acting without calculating the consequences. Getting driven by her boss and co.
Were you there with them Bob? How do you know all those details?
Najib what u don’t understand is that we all love Gretta but that doesn’t mean she can disrespect everybody and we should not rebuke her. U r asking if I was there, I tell u what if the NOC and LAF report confirms what I have written, that means all the officials hate gretta??? If they hate why so???? There’s something wrong no? But if they don’t hate her?? That means they r saying the truth no? Then be patient a little bit then react. Najib, Gretta turned the story to personal encouraged by her boss and co, coz she cannot defend herself otherwise. It was not better to stay silent for a while till official report? at the end of the day, NOTHING remains uncovered no?
It was a very simple question:
Bob, what are your sources?
Why so surprised/upset that athletes are having sex too? I’ve read the articles in CNN and the Huffington Post. These articles were based on – mostly anonymous- statements made by former athletes, referring to Olympic Games from the past. There is no evidence that this edition in London is ‘worse’ in comparison with other Olympic Games. It’s obvious that media likes to write about the Olympics especially in combination with sex. As usual these words attract a lot of attention from readers.
In brief: Sex and Olympics ‘sell’ and news organizations know that all too well.
What strikes me is, that without any official source, in this post and some of the comments, people are being accused of wrongdoing or worse, singly based on rumours.
Sometimes the combination athlete/coach doesn’t turn out to be a good one. There’s no country in the world which didn’t have to deal with such a problem at one point in their own sport-history. These things just happen and the only solution is to repair it.
No big deal.
But with all the commotion now, people’s carreers, reputations, family-lifes and future’s are unnecessary being destroyed. Which is the real shame imho.
For those few who’re obsessed about sex and the Olympics, I read also some good news regarding the next Games in Brasil.
From the Huffington Post (copy/paste):
Still, there’s no need to be prudish, according to the man overseeing the health of the Brazilian team.
“(Sex) is common at the Olympics. It’s necessary. It’s natural,” Dr. Joao Olyntho Machado Neto said. “If you are going to be healthy people, why not make sex? … Brazil is very tolerant with sex as a country. We don’t have Victorian minds and we’re not religious.”
Marcel it wasn’t me, it was Bob who said so.
I don’t know what Olympic are you talking about! Every Olympic is a sex orgy…and that’s according to the participants. Nothing better than an all out smack-down before a competition!
Btw Bob.. And FYI i know her coach too and he’s not even a real doctor!! He’s a LIAR!!! But i guess u would know that being close to him and what not!
This man Vahe Abrahamian is a total bad person, with serious problems! He was in relation with Gretta Taslakian and it was bcs of her that he divorced from his poor previous wife! Gretta did not want him anymore, but continued with him as trainer. (Maybe still in relation, who knows?) He also self-entitle himself as doctor, but he is not a doctor, its fake.
Also he have a disabled child in Brazil, of 5 years old, a small girl, which he had with a brazilian woman and never sent support for her treatments, the mother got in bad situation and alone to take care of the child!
Happily married? After destroying lifes and faking people, sounds good that he got into this scandal!
May God give him the lesson he truly deserves!
dear Nadia,ur telling us that he left his poor family bcoz of her and he is the bad guy here????? so tell me why a single girl pursues a married man????
have u ever asked abt her history??? pls ask and then comment.
I haven’t read all the comments but i am interested with the one that Nadia wrote about Vahe Abrahamian, he is indeed a sick person, i know him personnaly, he never been a doctor actually he don’t have any school or university degrees. He is fake, he tried to do many sexual relations with many female clients and some were not even 18. He destroyed the life of many young women.
Dear Nadia, it seems u r so much affected by Mr. Abrahamian. Have u been in love with him apparently and failed to end up with him? coz u r not protecting Gretta by saying : â€œMaybe still in relation, who knows?â€ but only talking anything by getting advantage of this blog in order to create scandal?
why the subject is being dragged to dirty talks? We r not here to eat each others flesh. would it be good for instance to talk about Grettaâ€™s personal life or her past? this is not the subject of discussion. Hater is bad .
belkoun chou fadi
exactly… 7eses 7ele 2e3ed bi foren!
So Bob says we shouldn’t trust anyone because they’re just “gossiping”, but what is Bob doing? The same. Bob has no proof, no solid evidence to show us, so why trust him? Why waste space on this blog for a post like that? It’s not worth it.
By the way, having “the most gorgeous wife and enjoying a new born babe.” doesn’t mean a man wont sexually harras a girl. It has nothing to do with that.
GrettaÂ´s scandal is only the tip of the iceberg about this man. I wonÂ´t answer you Bob! I am a big fan of Gretta and hope she will be able to open her mouth, but I doubt she will do so! It would be a favour to lebanese society to have Vahe Abrahamian uncovered and paying for his acts! Go Gretta, dont be silent, dont protect this man and give what he deserves, you have the power to do so, you know you have! Do a favour to the lebanese society, you have all in your hands, and you know that he deserves! Dont be afraid, lebanese people will adore you and protect you for being such a brave girl!
Lebanese authority also should check his credentials for running a personal medical clinic in Lebanon without being a medical doctor! Time to stop!
This is starting to sound like a soap opera
I think it would be an awesome Ramadan Series next year! 🙂
So, Vahe Abrahamian got angry because Gretta wasnÂ´t obeying him? Sounds like what? That he was frustrated because would have the oportunity to participate of the games and would not appear? What a shame! Vahe Abrahamian report, take pictures to use against her, and she is the wild one? He wanted what, to get close and in touch with the direction of the Olympic Games, to gain fame? This is not only weird, its super weird! To do this to a high profile athlete, representing Lebanon! What a stupid man! He messed up with the wrong girl this time, in the wrong situation and wrong place! All Lebanon will spit on his face, there is no way that his act can be right!
I’m hearing lots of 7ake nesswen from everyone one this post that would get you anywhere near the truth.
What I believe that whatever Gretta was doing wrong (if she was), the worst case scenario is that her coach will resign from assisting her and let her do it by himself, but to go and report her so she disqualifies, well that looks to be out of hater and jealousy.
Sorry for the bad English and missing words, I m just waking up and typing from my phone:-)
I agree with Alf . . . the coach simply could have resigned from coaching her but to go & file a formal complaint seems more like a vendetta of sorts.
As for Bob . . . I’m sorry but something seems off from all your reports & comments which appear to be filled with a whole load of gossip (all of which seems to be rather one-sided and extremely hostile).
In all honesty, the moment you tried to hurl an insult toward her facebook status is where your credibility began to wain (as far as I’m concerned) . . . I mean c’mon . . . all the girl did was say that she wasn’t going there with goals or expectations but rather was going to enjoy the moment. What exactly is wrong with that? Isn’t that suppose to be part of the Olympic spirit?
As I said in my earlier comments, if it turns out that Gretta was sent packing because of her green jacket, or the accusations of sexual harassment hold any water, THEN Gretta should file complaints with anyone and against anyone involved and raise hell about it.
1, Olympics is an overrated thing..2, what is it with Lebanese women and Irish men, has anyone else noticed that phenomenon? p.s. i know nothing about sports, or Greta or her coach, so this post is not about any if them
Ya Bob, it seems that you were one of the officials or close to one of them.
It’s either you have never been an athlete or an official that ever went to the olympics, or that you are related to clubs or persons who wants to harm Gretta.
I personally don’t care less about the person of Roger Bejjani or his article, but let me give you some small facts being an ex-athlete:
You said that no one saw Gretta from day 2 : Let me tell you that all the competitions I went to, the officials(almost all of them) disapperead from DAY 1. They were unreachable and enjoying their Olympic HOLIDAYS!
Yes, the Lebanese athletes due to their very humble level try to get the best of the olympics because their hope in any medal is close to Zero. That doesn’t mean that they don’t like what they’re doing or don’t want to have good results, it’s just that without real hope of any major result the athlete turn to the 2nd best thing which is enjoying fully the present time! ( this is human nature )
That being said, I know it’s a little bit difficult and frustrating for a trainer or an official not to have any control on the athlete ( if it really appeared that Gretta skipped all of her training and didn’t comply at all ), but it is beyond masochism to send her back to Lebanon… after all, what did they expect, an Olympic medal? It is there ya BOB that we unfortunately have to lay down the sexual past of her trainer! Maybe we will never know if there was a sexual harrasment or not,but any guy over 12 y.o. ( and that’s your case I imagine ) will tell you that his behaviour is strictly a jealousy case. I mean he dated her and left her ex-wife for her…even if he doesn’t desire her anymore ( which I doubt so ), he has probably mixed his libido, jealousy and maso-masculin feeling with the strict rules that should be applied on a world champion with chances of medals.
Enough said, an official warning + eventual sanctions on her way back could have been more ethical for an athlete of her standing coming from the LOC and/or the LAF.
But don’t get fooled, our officials are the mirror and image of our country el mharhar wel m3affan: Mr. Abrahamian ( her coach , or ex-coach probably ) didn’t act by himself; he was backed up but even more shitted minded from the LOC and LAF.
How discerning you are, can see very clear the situation! But I would use another term to “maso-masculin”, unstead. “Sado-male” behaviour. As I have heard from very trustable and close sources, which I have huge trust and was able to witness some of the cases, this coach has history on beating and humiliating women to the extend of finishing their lifes with huge traumas after using them to climb his purposes. Which Gretta was one of the elected to reach a higher profile position into the sports world, his aim. Unfortunately Gretta got him inside the high profile sports world as before Gretta he was nothing but a man who was trying to survive under lies (very well made, by the way, he is smart), and then now she is no longer useful, also because he married a high profile athlete who can from now on to give him the support he might need to go out from all this situation. And sincerely I hope that Gretta wont forgive what he has done to her and not get back on being trained by him. Hope this story will serve as improvement to her performances, to reach more and more gold medals without his coaching (she has done before meeting this coach, in fact).
How obvious miss “j” that u r again “Nadia” but changing ur name but using the very same style of comment :). I don’t understand whatever u r writing over this blog has anything to do with the discussed subject. It is very obvious that u r talking about urself, doing anything to take advantage of this blog and revenge for ur failure with this guy. Talking dirty is the easiest thing to do. Miss “J” or Nadia or miss ex-girl friend, do u know how easy to come and talk dirty? Myself i am trying to be fair with the situation. I would never encourage sending Gretta back,becoz no one over here is the enemy of Gretta, she is after all our champ. but i am totally against personalizing the subject and talking dirty just trying to justify. Anyone can come over this page and talk dirty about gretta’s personal life or past Who can stop ?
Ya BOB, BOBBY BOB! 🙂
It seems that you are the simple minded here! Begging for a reply? Ok, I will give you!
All what I said here its true, and anyone who wants to know the truth can investigate the very details of what I have said and find out that no single word was a lie. Very, very simple! Just a matter of having the purpose! The tip was given to whoever have the interest to know the truth! Now, if nobody have the interest, its not my problem anymore, my duty is done! I wont watch this crap anymore, again and again.
If they will investigate or not, I dont know, and I dont care, but 1 thing I am sure: GRETTA WAS SETTED UP. And setted up was a perfect term for what happen to her. As IÂ´ve said before, the man is smart. Simple minded is you, YA BOB! Who thinks ppl will swallow to put a whole country under such a shame with your SETTED UP ACT! TRAITOR!
Nadia what did Vahe do to you??? OMG, u are such a bitter frustrated woman!
I mean people come ON!!! This is Greta we are talking about here? How on earth did she become a victim? Doesn’t anyone know anything about her?
If that coach wanted really to get in her pants, he could have easily done it!
And Vahe is anything but smart and this incident is a proof. Vahe has simply principles and integrity. I mean people this Athelete is supposed to be “disciplined”; isn’t what sport is all about: disciplines???!!!
And seriously how can u accept that a lebanese representing Lebanon not wearing OUR Lebanese uniform? How on earth is that acceptable.
And Nadia, J or whatever, why did Gretta’s husband divorce her and O Rahbanni break his engagement with her? I seriously don’t like bringing up personal issues but with your stupid accusations, u gave me no choice.
And you guys were seriously worried about tarnishing her reputation???!!!!
I still don’t understand why all the fracas and accusations and counter insinuations??? Did she break the rules? How? Did he sexually harass/assault her? When?
These are the questions that should be answered and not based on “gossip”!!
Michele you are right…till you said” why did Grettaâ€™s husband divorce her and O Rahbanni break his engagement with her?”…
Well you very well know that has NOTHING to do with the topic unless you have a pattern of bahaviour that you would like to share with us with facts!
All this story is becoming a telenovela! Surely soon we will hear â€œnewsâ€ about Grettaâ€™s personal life, who is pretending to be a victim in this case. The victim is the wife of her new boyfriend, a married man with children.
This is her reputation! â€œRacingâ€ after rich married menâ€¦followed by her forever fiance O Rahbanni
What happened to ‘innocent until proven guilty’ ?
I don’t know about her reputation, however someone who made it to the Olympic games, especially coming from Lebanon with all the support and resources provided, already accomplished way more than any of you couch potatoes so eager to lecture and preach can even dream of.
Nadia “All what u said here is true”? u mean ur story? but who is interested in ur story over here? I knew that u r a brasilian woman who lives in Brasil and u never ever met Gretta in ur life simply following news over the net becoz of obsession. and u r talking as if Gretta is ur dearest friend, is this not very funny? who would believe ur words? I am sorry i had to use this words. If u want to know more , i want u to know that it was never Gretta who claimed the sexual harrasment story coz its a very stupid story as both of them they spend hours alone every day together since many years and they keep traveling together. It is Mr Roger bejjani the president of Gretta’s club who wrote the stupid story on the behalf of Gretta. I want Gretta come over here and say yes this stupid story is true!!!
She knows its a lie and she will never do it. but the story went too far from control. “Nadia” ( which is not ur name), pls take care of ur child as we heard from some people who r close to u that u have been drinking and smoking and taking anti-depressive drugs during the last months of ur pregnancy. Therefore it is not better for u to not interfere in the Lebanese blog and go find urself a man ? that would help u get rid of ur frustration.
We love Vahe and we love Gretta!! understood?
What is a “SETTED UP”?? 😀
Sorry my english, I though setted up was the word. What I meant when someone is fooled, conducted to do a mistake in purpose, or not doing a mistake at all, but conducted to look like doing so. Trapped would fit?
This guy was with bad intentions from day 1 and thats the result.
Michele, why my stupid accusations (which are true)? Bcs it was not Gretta who went there “snitching” after Vahe, she was good, she gave him the chance for him to go to London and show his work. What he did?
WHAT HE DID? He think he will do what, become a revolutionary coach who will teach how to be an athlete to the lebanese athletes? He cant do it cs he is NOTHING, he spent his time snitching on Gretta and trying to find any single move with the goal to ban her. This is not HATER? This is not BITTERNESS? This is WHAT, then?
In his letter he said “SO SMART”: The magic turns against the magician, and again, more threats, like if everyone should give him reason and apologise to the “KING OF COACHES VAHE ABRAHAMIAN”? Thinking himself smart? He did nothing but a scandal, trying to appear and get famous!
And goodbye, said what had to be said, with my stupid (AND VERY TRUE) accusations. This man has no morals to apply on Gretta.
Bad luck I got tired to see women having their lifes destroyed by this smart ass, it makes me so angry! To finalize: anyone who want to check if what I say is true, just investigate. Its not something hard to do.
Wish a blessed return to Gretta Taslakian, our queen champ!
Ah, forgot! For last time! There is also a child with life compromised, related to bad treatments during pregnancy, who got a brain palsy! Probably another woman poor of morals and with behaviour problems! Goodbye!
My opinion is that no one wants to know about what Gretta does with her personal life, but why she was banned this way. I did not see such a serious reason for an athlete like her to be banned, and as someone have said here or I dont know where, lebanese athletes have near zero chances to get a gold medal in the olympic games and as second thing is also an oportunity to socialize, make friends, and see old friends. Her coach should have, in worst case, done the same, making friends, contacts, socializing…I think nobody understand what was this obsesion on get her kiked, special that someone said before that she was like his litel sister….then….who would do that to his litel sister, expose to the entire cauntry to such a shame of being baned. This for me looks like tryng to ruin a reputation…and from what have been said about this coach here I understand that is not about this or that story, it is about explaining a patern of behaviour (someone said here and I agree). In the end we wish to know what hapen but seems that we will never know and every individual should take his individual conclusion. But guyz, plz stop this. Enough show. Put a stone in this subject and lets hope all have larned something. Specialy that who start a quarrel might be the most guilty one of the guilty, for me I understand in this case, is the coach, for baning her in the eyes of an axious country in such a big event. No need to expose her to this, it was not nice. All this is folowed by this act. Sorry coach, its my opinion. You should not, it was not nice.
Hummmm….I think what he wanted was the irish coach…sounds too gay for me to be so desperate to send away that super woman! lol
Coach potatoe, I like that! :))))
Damian, not the coach sent her home, but LOC took this decision when they saw her in the irish boots, training with the irish coach and wearing the green jacket like irish team. If the jacket was a Nike jacket is her problem. In the day of the competition it is a must to wear the clothes that each federation provides to the athletes, based on a contract( Peak). About what fair play are some of you talking about? This is an act of indiscipline and disrespect!
What happened to â€˜innocent until proven guiltyâ€™?
I donâ€™t know about her reputation, however someone who made it to the Olympic games, especially coming from Lebanon with all the support and resources provided, already accomplished way more than any of you couch potatoes so eager to lecture and preach can even dream of.”
Dani, getting her down for the detail of a jacket colour, the “Gretta Taslakian”, who have made all way up to Olympics, being a lebanese (means not interested in sport, but rich marriage, party, clothes, rings, plastic surgery, and so on), lebanon should lick her fingers for representing this brave performance despite cultural issues. What a woman! Must not be easy to be that awesome body, face and smile, and performance, being born and raised in a country where all women are fat, not active in sports, so on. For that, coach potatoes, she should be joining irish team, for sure, if lebanese coaches potatoes and ppl does not give her the value she deserves! Her reputation as this or that? Who cares! Women should practice sports and keep fit so their husbends wont search for anything outside! And I bet you agree! Gretta, wrong place! If she did all this way (we see its for love of what she does) in another country, now we would have the most outstanding performance! Or you want to tell me that the Lebanon is a sport country? For that, ARMIGATUS said it all, in short, simple, easy words! Said it all! 😀
Dear bob i think what u need is to do a little investigation urself… Vahe Aprahamian is a liar and a con… He is not even a real doctor.. Doesn’t own a real degree (he has just read a lot of books, and he thinks he’s a doctor). He stole another doctor’s SS number( u knoq how each doctor has a special number written on prescription reports)who has the same name and has been pretending to be a doctor!! He needs to be exposed before he ruins more peoples’ lives, i just feel sorry for his next victim!! Here in the US we call that identity theft, and it’s prosecuted by law, we’re talking years in prison! So please do your homework people! I know this has nothing to do with the topic, but since you said “Dr Vahe”.. I thought u should know that he’s not!!
Concerned citizen you are 100% right, that guy must be stopped. I know some of his victims.
