St. Konstantine (...) made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire,

He didn't.

St. Theodosius, right?

St. Theodosius II, IIRC. St. Theodosius I closed the Olympics.

It's a shame that wasn't maintained.

At least male figure skaters are clothed, even if it is with weird feathered costumes.

If Tupac were Orthodox, he'd be a Saint for his social activism and giving so much to charity.

Dude, the bar for sainthood--actual glorification by the Church--is not as low as you presume.

"St. Tupac" does have a nice ring to it though...

And boxing doesn't involve hardened leather or metal anymore.
