When the Baron Pierre de Coubertin drafted the Olympic Charter in 1894 (in French) I doubt very seriously, in his wildest nightmares, he thought he would see someone like Allen Iverson bask in what he hoped would be the quadrennial glow of amateurism.
Safe to say "The Answer" is the opposite of that.
(Thanks to Professor and Official Olympic Historian Dr. John Lucas for allowing me to remember all of the 'Baron's' info from his class, EXSCI 451 at Dear Old State.)
