Nadzeya Ostapchuk (Надзея Астапчук) won the gold medal Monday in the women’s shot put after a 21.36-meter launch. Unfortunately few international fans cheered her on and instead many were preoccupied with her looks. Calling her everything from ugly to a “man” the fan base of the Olympics chose to humiliate someone who achieved a milestone via hard work and effort rather than looks.
She finished fourth in the 2004 Summer Olympics. We’re sorry that the world is full of jerks and offer to you Nadzeya, our sincere congratulations.
