Father can't handle losing

The video above is of Ukrainian swim coach, Mikhail Zubkov who has been banned from coming within 200 metres of his daughter after physically assaulting her during the Swimming World Championships in Melbourne. The film shows Zubkov grappling with his 18 year old daughter, Kateryna Zubkova after she failed to qualify for the final of the 50m backstroke. Zubkov, who is also banned from contacting his daughter, has been bailed to appear before a Melbourne court on Thursday after pictures of the scuffle in the marshalling room were broadcast across the nation.

If Jennifer Capriati taught us anything it is how to deal with an overbearing father and still make a name for yourself. All it takes is a little assistance from the lord. That is, a little help from your local drug lord Pedro Gonzalez, and some prayer at the church of blow.

And just because she’s hot, here are some sweet pix of former world number one tennis star Jelena Dokic, who also had some dust-ups with her coach/father.
