Conficius say: 'Tis better to toss out a medal, than toss out excuses

Hey, if Ara Abrahamian of Sweden doesn't want his Greco-Roman wrestling bronze medal, can Canada please have it?
Canada's medal count is going to pick up by the weekend. Far be it to suggest this modest proposal: Canadian Olympians can only offer the "tried my best, happy to be close" line if they grapple Mr. Abrahamian first. It could be Greco-Roman, freestyle or thumb war -- his choice.
