With the Olympic flame in Argentina, IOC officials were discussing how future relays should be handled. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has told China he will not attend the Games opening ceremony in Beijing in August.
The IOC president said protests at the relay in London, Paris and San Francisco had created a “crisis”. Speaking on Thursday, Jacques Rogge also urged China to respect its “moral engagement” to improve human rights. But Beijing told the IOC to keep politics out of the Games.
Indeed, but what happens with politics entering the Olympics? And they have done so for the last …let me see 70 years when Nazis organized the Olympic games in 1938.
