Which athletes were sent home in disgrace?

Fourth-Place Medal

Nick Delpopolo

No Olympics is complete without certain elements: glorious victories, stunning upsets, heartbreaking losses…

And athletes kicked out of the Games. These Olympics saw the dismissal of several competitors, with the use of performance-enhancing drugs as the main culprit. People were also kicked out for being openly racist, tweeting inappropriate things, purposely trying to lose, and, in the case of one athlete, getting so drunk in public that he looked like he wet himself.
