‘Olympics Porn’ is Skyrocketing in South Korea, According to PornHub

When it comes to the Olympics, one thing immediately comes to mind: tradition. From the torch relay to the ceremonial playing of the national anthems each time a gold medalist is announced, tradition plays a huge factor in what makes the Olympics great…amongst other things, of course.

Former Australian Olympian Jacqui Cooper has been accused of racism after saying “all Chinese competitors look the same” during Channel Seven’s coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Cooper, 45, made the comment about Chinese athletes during the first stages of the women’s skiing aerials at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Thursday night, the Herald Sun reported. “Double-twisting double summersault.

Athletes from around the world are now competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics currently being held in the county of Pyeongchang, South Korea, but apparently, one Chicago news station thinks that the event is happening at “P.F. Chang’s”.
