A rower in the women’s eight boat, Nadja Drygalla, left London earlier than planned after reports of a connection to a far right group that promotes white supremacy.
Apparently she decided to leave on her own so as not to be a distraction to her teammates.
How was she allowed to get this far? Apparently her team knows of this connection but a spokesperson said Drygalla was committed to the Olympic ideal.
More likely it was felt her team would do better with her in the boat than without her.
