8_Pints BS: Olympics Opening Ceremony (43) RE: BS: Olympics Opening Ceremony 12 Aug 08

Of course, the really ironic thing is that the ancient games shunned any form of nationalism, to the extent that wars were suspended in order for the individual athletes to compete 'man to man' (women weren't permitted).

It now seems nothing more than a showcase to earn more medals than the next nation, 'Team GB' included. With so much UK Lottery funding going to elite athletes, it would appear that the grass-roots folk are being sidelined. Little wonder that we are accused of becoming more obese and unfit.....

What do others think?
