UPDATE: You got us again, Jimmy Kimmel.

The internet was on fire Thursday morning when Olympian Kate Hansen tweeted a link to a YouTube video with what appeared to be a wolf or large dog roaming what she claimed was her hall at the Olympic Village in Sochi.  

But apparently this was an orchestrated hoax by late-night TV host Kimmel. According to the Orlando Sentinel and Kansas City Star, Sandy Caligiore, a publicist for the United States Luge Association, confirmed to Inside Edition that the video was a hoax. Caligiore said Hansen will Skype with Kimmel for the show that airs Thursday night.

I always say, if you're going to cry wolf - get an actual wolf to cry with http://t.co/930U3lFfr5 @k8ertotz— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) February 20, 2014<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Kimmel also famously hoaxed the internet world back in September of 2013 with a YouTube video of a girl catching on fire after a failed 'twerk' attempt.

Below is the original story


Olympic luger Kate Hansen caught on video what she believes is a wolf roaming through the halls of the dorm where the US atheletes are staying in Sochi.

We've heard numerous complaints and concerns about stray dogs in that region, but this is the first that a wolf has been caught on video.

Wolf in my hall?!? #SochiProblems #SochiFail http://t.co/ZMqZFC40jp— Kate Hansen (@k8ertotz) February 20, 2014

On her social media, the 21-year-old Olympian writes "I'm pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi. #SochiFail"

Hansen has made a bit of a name for herself for her warmup dances at Sochi:


It's not clear if the animal caught on video is actually a wolf or a large dog. Still...

India back in the Olympics; flag to fly in Sochi

India has been reinstated to the Olympics in time for the flag to fly at the Sochi Winter Games.

The International Olympic Committee announced the decision Tuesday, saying it was the first time in history that a suspension of a National Olympic Committee had been lifted during the games.

Three Indian athletes marched into the opening ceremony last Friday under the Olympic flag and were allowed to compete as independent athletes.

But after a special flag raising ceremony in the Olympic Village on Tuesday, Day 5 of the Sochi Games, they can compete for India.

The Indian Olympic Association ended the stand-off with the IOC by holding elections on Sunday and installing world squash chief Narayna Ramachandran as president.

India had been suspended by the IOC in December 2012 for not holding elections according to its own constitution and for electing tainted officials, notably president Abhay Chautala and secretary-general Lalit Bhanot.

Both of them were ineligible to stand this time, according to the new IOA constitution.

Bhanot is charged with corruption during the organization of the 2010 Commonwealth Games while Chautala is charged in a recruitment scam not related to sport. Both men deny any wrongdoing.

IOC member Randhir Singh, a former secretary-general of the Indian Olympic body, said the IOC made a very important decision for Indian sport.

"This is great news for Indian sport," Singh told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "It's time everyone understands that the Olympic charter is supreme. It is important that sport is run well and tainted officials are kept out in a country of 1.2 billion in which 40 per cent is youth."

Ramachandran heads the new Indian committee, with Rajeev Mehta becoming secretary general and Anil Khanna elected as treasurer.

Ramachandran, who served as treasurer of the IOA from 2008-12, is the younger brother of Narainswamy Srinivasan, who is the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and is set to become chairman of the International Cricket Council.
