Irina Rodnina won three straight Olympic gold medals in pairs figure skating. She won ten straight gold medals at the World Championships. And, yes, she is Jewish! You can feel the kvell coming to you through the screen!
Yeah... not so much.
Firstly, Rodnina spent most of her life hiding her Jewishness. Secondly, after retiring from sport, she became a politician, a stooge for Putin. Thirdly, for the love of G-d, please don't do an image search for "Irina Rodnina banana". Just trust us. It's not worth.
Alright, let's explain: Firstly, Rodnina tweeted a racist photoshopped picture of Barack and Michelle Obama. Secondly, she vigorously defended her actions. Thirdly, she reversed her statement and claimed she was hacked. (She wasn't hacked.)
Not too much to kvell about...
