The invitations to participate in this competition were issued
to individuals (teams) which have demonstrated world-class
skills in radiosport.  To imply that some are "slower, less
engergetic and less motivated" is a horrific insult to both
the other competitors and to the selection committee which
invited them.

To publicly issue that insult on an international forum such 
as this reflector strikes me a WAY outside the pale of civil
manners among honorable competitors.
