Re: Olympics 2020 Tokyo

I have read too much over the years about what a corrupt aristocracy the entire Olympics organization is. Too long to cover all of it here.

I think it is also toxic to the sports. A few, like basketball, have such an overwhelming non-Olympics presence that the Olympics is just an interlude. But so many of the other sports, such as gymnastics, swimming, skiing, track and field, shooting and archery, and a number of others have strong international competitions every year, but the Olympics becomes the focal point and detracts from the others.

There are a few others which almost no one would ever see or be aware of if not for the Olympics - such as equestrian.
