Yes, There Are People With Rude Names Participating In The Winter Olympics

But don’t worry guys, nobody noticed a thing.

1. So this guy represented Germany during the “Men’s Normal Hill Individual Ski Jumping”.

2. It’s not like anyone noticed it.

4. Or were childish about it.

I wonder if any other nation finds German Ski jumper Andreas Wank's name to be as brilliantly amusing as we do? I have nicknamed him Danger.

7. And were so childish about it that it trended.

Well at least there was no-one with a funny name in an event on the same day.

8. Oh wait. There was this guy in the luge.

Er there's a Russian luger called Semen Pavlichenko...luge is a dangerous sport. Hope he doesn't come to a...sticky end.

Semen Pavlichenko and Andreas Wank have competed at the Winter Olympics today. Both went for gold, but neither have pulled it off.

11. But it could be worse. You could be this guy.
