It is so sad that politics have to play such a huge role in the Olympics. It really spoils everything! The way I see it, there are a great number of young people who have worked very hard to get to the Olympics and they should be proud of their acomplishments! The mere fact that they are at Salt Lake is something to be proud of! And this is regardless of who they are or where they are from!
But then we have the politics involved and it really takes away from what these kids have acoomplished! To me, the politics are very ugly and have no place in the games!
So, without ant further adieu, from a humble Canadian, I applaud all the athletes and say: "Job Well Done!" And, thanks for the show!
