There's been a lot of post-victory boozing in Vancouver this year. Canadian John Montgomery was filmed chugging a pitcher of beer after winning gold in skeleton.

Us? We say to the victors go the spoils, but the IOC may see it differently. Gilbert Felli, the IOC's executive director of the Olympic Games, said when contacted by the AP that it was "not what we want to see. I don't think it's a good promotion of sport values. If they celebrate in the changing room, that's one thing, but not in public. We will investigate what happened."
