To wear nail polish in rainbow colors is an unacceptable act of gay propaganda. That is not the opinion of the Russians... but the Swedes.
Emma Green Tregaro, the Swedish high jumper who painted her fingernails in rainbow colors to support gay rights at the World Championships in Moscow, has took the field with a bright red in her nails this time.
Green Tregaro said the Swedish officials of track and field federation asked her to "please respect the rules" and change the color of her nails because that rainbow gesture could be a violation of the competition's code of conduct. For this reason, she decided to paint them in an intense red color, the color of love.
After Green Tregaro's incident, the head of Sweden’s Olympic Committee, Stefan Lindeberg, has ruled that political protests against Russia’s anti-gay legislation will not be tolerated at the Sochi Olympics next year.
Seriously, is the nails color ruled in any competition's code of conduct? And do all Swedish people think such as their official?
