Right on Tess. I can't agree with you more. Olympics is for the athletes & other people who love sports. Some people are just using the Olympics to get promote their advocacies. Sooo wrong... Olympics was not made to be a platform for politics.

I posted the svme thing in my blog BTW... http://olympicblogger.blogspot.com/2007/08/why-boycott-beijing-olympics.html

and the equestrian events are the ones i would most love to see!

when my sister was young she took gymnastics from the le fleur's, two (i think) of whom were on the 1980 us gymnastics team. it was always kind of sad to see the team picture in the office knowing that they never had the chance to compete. i hope the athletes headed for beijing don't have to experience that.

Yes, shame to use the athletes as pawns, but the US has done so in the past. Punishes no one but the hard workers who have no idea why they suddenly are forced to lose.
