Now something smells in the Olympics ,

August 24, 2016

Bob, As I intimated in earlier posts re the Olympic games, once "professional" athletes ,ie MONEY, entered the arena, corruption & dope taking took precedence over sporting prowess on a level playing field. With the complete Russian ParaOlympic athletes all now banned too (due to doping & State fiddling of results), it seems nothing is being learned. What a shame the whole Olympic movement is tarnished in this way, but mud sticks, & suspicion will continue to surround every success unfortunately, plus any greedy / corrupt officials of the organisation. Hopefully ALL Team GB are squeaky clean & remain so, because despite my misgivings over Lotto funded sponsorship, they've all done the nation proud both on & off the "track". Mind you, if they all get Knighthoods / Awards, the Royal Mint or Medals Office are going to be kept busy eh !?! John (JKW)

John I hope as well that the British athletes are as pure as the driven snow with the support of " loads of money" and are really professional . But I did here that an athlete for the Para Olympics has been excluded as his only disability was he "wasn't on drugs " mmmmmmm
