Crazy Canuk gets 5 months

ATHENS, Greece -- A tutu-clad Canadian who jumped into the Olympic diving pool after a competition was convicted Wednesday of interrupting the games and sentenced to five months in jail. He was released pending an appeal.

Ron Bensimhon, 31, of Montreal, jumped off the 3-meter springboard at the diving venue Monday night wearing a blue tutu and white tights with polka dots.

"I didn't think what I did was so serious. I won't do it again," he told the judge.

Bensimhon had what looked like an advertisement for an Internet casino written across his chest but denied staging the stunt for money. He told the court he wanted to honor legendary Greek marathon runner Spyros Louis, who won gold in the first modern Olympics in 1896.

The incident prompted organizers to tighten security at Olympic venues with police officers dressed as volunteers.

In March, Bensimhon disrupted the world figure skating championships in Dortmund, Germany, when he skated onto the ice and donned a tutu as defending champion Michelle Kwan was about to perform. Painted on his chest was the name of a Web site.

After that event, Bensimhon was almost immediately released because his infraction was deemed only disorderly conduct and not an offense meriting arrest.

I wonder how much you'd have to pay someone to do that. Seriously... I want to know... because if it's a good deal I think we should all chip in to get some moron to do the same thing with thevoiceofmaine.com on his back. Rolling Eyes

Quimby

I think she is a communist here in Northern Maine that is against people owning land, and enjoying recreation on their land. Nah, tell us who is Quimby?

Do a web search on Roxanne Quimby. Read all about the new Aristocacy that is taking over the land and then barring us from the "QUEENS WOODS"

Remember the penalty for hunting in the KINGS WOOD back in England? I'll bet she would do the same if she could.

Yup Rolling Eyes A Google search with her full name in the window will give you all you need to know. She's one of the biggest threats to the old "Maine, the way life should be" slogan.

Problem is shes attempting to change it to the way SHE feels life in Maine should be. Mad
