Re: The Olympic open ceremony thread

Lithuanian fan fined for the forbidden salute with costs.

The Age

Quote:
A Lithuanian man who gave a Nazi salute during an Olympic basketball match has become the first person to be convicted of a racially aggravated offence at the Games and fined GBP2,500.

Fining him GBP2,500 plus GBP85 costs, district judge Sonia Sims told him: ‘‘This type of conduct tarnishes the whole ethos of the Games.’’
