Czechs Beat ROC and U.S. Embassy Reaction

On Saturday, 12 February, the Czech Olympic Hockey team beat the Russian Olympic Committee team in overtime.  The final score was 6-5.  The Czechs love hockey and it's even better every time they beat the Russians. 

Due to widespread doping, the World Anti-Doping Agency has suspended Russia.  The 212 Russian athletes competing in China at the Beijing Olympics right now have to compete as the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC).  The Russian flag is replaced by the flag of the ROC and the Russian anthem isn't played during medal ceremonies.

The U.S. Embassy in Prague decided to have a little fun when they congratulated the Czechs on their victory over the ROC.

The text of their Facebook post says "Even a small country can do great things! But what is the ROC?  We couldn't find their flag..."
