  1. A few of the outraged tweets after learning that the IOC had banned a campaign for athletes to honour deceased snowboarder Sarah Burke's memory by wearing stickers on helmets: 
  2. The IOC is citing the following rule "No form of publicity or propaganda, commercial or otherwise, may appear on persons, on sportswear, accessories or, more generally, on any article of clothing or equipment whatsoever worn or used by the athletes or other participants in the Olympic Games, except for the identification … of the manufacturer of the article or equipment concerned, provided that such identification shall not be marked conspicuously for advertising purposes.”
  3. Sarah Burke’s widower Rory Bushfield and father Gord Burke plan to join other close friends and family to proudly watch from the stands when Burke’s beloved sport, women’s half-pipe skiing, makes its Games’ debut February 20.
