Honestly, the cat, I am not saying a word about SLC Games any more. I am tired of it. I mean, what's a point.. For me it was a turning point - I think the whole idea is pretty much dead - it now depends quite little on talent and commitment. It is now up to who has more money to finance, who have better experts in pharmacology, whether you got caught or not ( they say that the method to detect the drug used by skiers was developed just a couple of weeks ago, what if it would not have been developed, they'd still be heroes? How many of Olympic winners are this kind of "heroes"?) judging games, etc, etc...
No, cat.. I think that Olympics, as well as anything in Top sports, is a dirty business, and there is not much you can do to clean it. Team sports will be pretty clean, because they are relying on mental aspect a lot. But others.. Russian officials say that The Games started with corruption when it was decided to have it in SLC, they preferred to forget that Mr. Smirnov, Russian IOC representatives was under investigation of being bribed in that occasion himself, and the bribe was proved, yet considered insignificant.
I am pretty much confused about the whole thing right now. Let me stick with supporting tennis, waiting for WC-2002, and other things that I can trust to be honest. Olympics are in crisis, that's pretty obvious.
