Defying all odds? Like electrical refrigeration hasn’t been a thing for well over a century. They have NHL teams in Florida and Texas (cries in Northstars).


This is like the Mexican version of Cool Runnings.


Mexico hasn’t had an ice skater in the Olympics in 30 years. That is called defying the odds. You guys are reaching pretty far on the whole racist thing but maybe that’s because that’s your first thought. You’ve trained yourself to have racist thoughts trying to call others out for being racist. Hah.


Wow this is great!


There’s snow and ice in Mexico. This feels a bit racist. And all Olympians defy the odds!!!
