Why is it news though? You don't see the names of every rapist who gets 21 years in jail written in the newspaper - most times when a rape conviction occurs it's merely recorded by the police and the judicial branch. I don't see why this should be different because he took part at the Olympics before, and I certainly don't see what there is to discuss about it - except the inevitable: some athletes, like some humans, are nasty pieces of work.
