Iran boycotts race because of Israeli....

Fun and games at the World Swimming Championships...
The Israeli swim team has expressed disappointment after an Iranian competitor withdrew from a heat against one of its athletes at the world championships. Mohammed Alirezaei of Iran did not start a heat that also featured Gal Nevo in the 100-meter breaststroke Sunday.

“Unfortunately, this is what usually happens − it’s crazy,” Yitzhak Kramer, the head of the Israeli delegation, told The Associated Press yesterday. “This competition is about sport, not politics, and you need to separate the two. That’s what is supposed to be nice about sport.

Tough luck on the iranian swimmers. If politics is their main issue over sports then they don't belong in it.
