If not he is just like every other person that throws that up, and has no tie to the crew that started it.
Technically, you don't have to "run" with the OD's to be a Demshitz, from the Demshitz site:
"So,when people ask who is Demshitz? Demshitz says,“Demshitz is everyone who wants to be Demshitz!”“Demshitz is Demshitz”.
The group may be 1000 deep now..."
"The goal of Demshitz is to teach the respect and knowledge of Demshitz to future generations and create one big happy Demshitz family."
So I guess the Olympics are now part of the happy Demshitz family, I like it, it's the opposite of snobby kayak clubs
