Comments on: More than just Games for Beijing http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2008/07/30/more-than-just-games-for-beijing/ Insights behind the investment headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:43:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Neal http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2008/07/30/more-than-just-games-for-beijing/comment-page-1/#comment-189 Fri, 01 Aug 2008 21:34:05 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/globalinvesting/2008/07/30/more-than-just-games-for-beijing/#comment-189 Most of the world has forgotten that CHINA IS A COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. Just because the Chinese want all our money and managed to buy the hosting of the Olympic Games doesn’t make them more democratized.

The spirit of competition based on ones personal ability with fair play for all??… yeah right… the Games have become a political joke.

earthquake, floods, algae at sea. I hope the Olympics go well, and establish a certain prominence among the International Community. It is very possible that Internet precautions would be taken for security considerations. I would like to see all athletes compete without pitfalls, and the Olypmpic Movement continue to grow, in spite of Commercial influence.

I doubt any athlete would use products like Coke anyway. The system will not change anytime soon because of the *huge* amount of corruption in the IOC, they even admit taking 10% of the total proceeds, so what is the real figure?

Only the “athletes” who don’t get caught using drugs will get medels anyway.
