All the Olympic opening pyrotechnics in China can’t cover the fact that they have serious issues with religious freedom, classism, and democracy in generally. New allegations have surfaced alleging China’s use of athletes under 16 years of age to win. As with Russia, China has their Olympians in full time training with stipend. Win or loose, our young people will play fair and square, the American way, to honestly realize their athletic dreams. I, for one, will be watching Law & Order re-runs.
