Keep mowing down them straw men. All I said is that was what the Soviets cared most about winning, and they were dominant in that regard. If you don't think it "counts" or whatever then fine. Doesn't change the fact that the Soviet Union dominated the Olympics and World Championships.

Don't make stupid statements about the Soviets being an "embarrassment".
