"Dot com. So coming up the winter olympics. Twenty twenty two are in beijing and they're not escaped controversy. Either human rights groups say that china's treatment of the wieger people should disqualify the country from hosting the games. Do you think there will be any boycott of the winter. Two thousand twenty olympics on this issue or any other in my personal opinion looking at the situation right now. I don't think there will be a boycott of the beijing. Two thousand twenty two games and the reason is that a consensus has emerged since the end of the cold war among those people who have the power to send athletes two games so that is heads of state national governments and national olympic committees and that is the group of people who are saying. That boycotts don't accomplish political purposes and they only harm the athletes. And so i think there's a broad consensus among the people who hold the power to send athletes to games that boycotts don't work and they're a bad idea. And if you look carefully you'll realize that the organizations calling for boycotts are typically non-governmental organizations which are advocacy groups for the various causes. That are getting attention on the olympic platform and in particular the leaguers in seen john and also to a slightly lesser extent. The on hong kong people. I think we can all detect that you have a strong affinity for the expectations of the athletes themselves. That the intersection of politics and athletics only hurts the athletes. I'm wondering what your personal history with the olympics are what do they mean to. Well i have my own personal history with boycotts. Because the closest i ever came to making an olympic team was in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty. I was a track and field athlete. I was competing in the pentathlon at the olympic trials which later after nineteen eighty became the heptathlon. I placed seventh in those olympic trials. That top three team. So i was the fourth alternate before. We even started competing at the trials. We knew that there would be the boycott so it had really reduced the significance of the trials before they even started. And i remember that athletes were discussing the fact that in those days we were all officially amateurs. Professional athletes were not allowed to compete in the olympic games until starting in nineteen eighty eight and we received no government support and so we thought it was unfair that our government which had never given us any money had the power to keep us from realizing our dreams and i think there was a bit of cynicism towards the government's attitude at that point. Yeah maybe i picked up a bit of that at that point. We felt like we were pawns. And i have continued to believe. The basically athletes are pawns. Have been used as pawns political games. But i've got to say. I think that is finally changing. I think this is going to be seen as a pivotal moment. When that started to change within the olympic movement athletes found therefore and athletes became maybe more important than the politicians. At least you know for the sixteen days of the games you mentioned before the interview that you might be a little tired today because you're waking up early to watch the events in tokyo. How many times have you watch a spectator at an olympic. I've been able to attend six olympic games. The nineteen eighty-four in los angeles olympic games. Of course were in the us and they were just down the road from santa barbara where i was training because i also competed in the nineteen eighty-four olympic trials. So i was able to just drive down and watch Atlanta of course was in the us and my sister lived there so i spent the period of the games with her and spectate at the events in atlanta in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. I then became more interested in actual research on the olympic games and was both a researcher and a spectator at the athens. Two thousand four olympic games. Beijing two thousand eight olympic games in rio twenty sixteen games in the chung twenty eighteen winter games and because i am a china scholar. I spent the entire year in beijing leading up to the two thousand eight olympic games and i engaged in a lot of olympics related activities with the beijing olympic organizing committee and also with the beijing municipal government. What do you hope. The future of olympics holtz. Well i certainly understand. The cynicism and the criticism of the olympic games criticism of the gigantism. The taxpayer burden. I understand all of that. But as an anthropologist. I also look at the grand sweep of history and i really feel that the olympic games have ever since they're really going back to ancient greece and then also since the revival in one thousand nine hundred six. They've been a counterbalance to war. I feel that there's a way in which the people who are organizing olympic games. They're trying to build connections and put forward a vision of peace. Which is the counterbalanced to the you know. Major major efforts more efforts and military efforts that are going on in the world at any point in time. So i think in the grand scheme of things. I'd like to think of the olympic games as a peace movement. And i do wish. Some of my academic colleagues would look more seriously at that angle. And i think the world would be a worse place without olympic games and that if we have criticisms of the games we need to figure out how to keep the good parts and then fix the problematic carts. Dr brownell. thank you so much for talking to me today. Well thank you for having me. It's been very entertaining. And i hope. I was able to give you some new ideas about the olympic games a much discussed top. That was my conversation with dr susan brown now. She's an internationally recognized expert. On the olympics chinese sports.

"Of the olympic games. I mean they were found to be in breach of just about every rule and banned entirely from competing at the olympics but there has been an arbitration since then to try to allow athletes to compete in some way but not as neutral athletes as part of this russian olympic committee. And that's where the anger is. Well yeah and so when we see the anger and we've seen more athletes saying you know this is. This is bogus but is it a sour grapes. Like i don't think i should be losing to rush it like this on a real band or is it more than that. I think it's two things firstly. I think that's a sense that you can never be sure about any athlete at these games if they're coming from the russian olympic committee because of the very recent history of course threaten. I do think that the final was not clean. And why you think. So i think. Why didn't you think that's that's frustrating. That you can't answer that question with with one hundred percents certainty. I think it's also because the way that the ioc operates. They have in large part allowed national olympic committees to self regulate. So we're taking it as read that these. These athletes particularly in swimming and gymnastics are doing what they're supposed to be doing there were. I'm sure a lot of people from certain countries competing this week. That probably shouldn't have been here so it's also because there are actually athletes at these games. You have been found guilty of doping by the world anti doping agency. They were banned from competing. They then managed to appeal to the court of arbitration for sport and they are back here so when same athlete the somebody you competed against was a doper at some point individuals. Yes yes. i mean the specific athlete. Who won i should say against ryan murphy was not one of those athletes but there have been both men and women in the pool for example who have been banned from competing here and then managed to appeal and are back here competing. I was you know racing. Anyone from country who should have been an instead got a slap on the wrist and rebranding of their national flag the criticism. That's come in. You've just taking away their flag and their name but they're still here. What are you actually doing to stop them. They will say well. There's a big testing procedure here at these games so when athletes come in they compete in any event. There was a lot of testing that goes on. There's pre event testing as well but the big issue for a lot of individuals. Sports is they're regulated in different ways where it comes with swimming and gymnastics. These are events these disciplines which the ioc has largely given responsibility for doping over to national olympic committees so they basically said to the russians. You tell us how you doing. And then you can come to the olympics. But you won't be able to use your own tracksuit and that's basically how it worked whereas if you look at the track and field events which will this second week of the olympics. They are regulated by separate athletic integrity unit. They have taken the responsibility away from the individual national association. And they've said we're going to test everyone. We will decide who can compete. Is it not too late by the time athlete gets to the olympics. Should the oversight not happen for the months and years before competition like the olympics. And how does the well check. How happen speaking here for other sports. I can tell you how are sports operates. We made a judgment out of the register what we call the registered testing pool and on russia. They've only allowed ten athletes from the russian olympic committee to compete We to the best of our best of all confidence Pretty sure that they are clean and they are under our systems and under our supervision. I can't speak for others. What can i ask. Seb coe's world athletics president. What he would have done if you're in the position to make these decisions and he said if it were up to me the russians would be competing as neutral athletes and they'd be wearing gray but it's not up to me. It's up to the james longman there.

"Active member of the international olympic committee. Dick was also in olympia by some grandchildren like all grandparents do the i swim so long ago. We didn't even have water. So i was. I was a double finalist in swimming at the games. Enrollment nineteen sixty okay. So i won't bury the lead here. Dick disagrees with many of jules boycotts arguments. He does acknowledge that. In some of the past olympic games there have been failures but says that it isn't accurate to hold the ioc responsible because ultimately they can only do so much to regulate the actions of host cities is pretty difficult a very small organization Even though it's got an important role to play and when you're going up against governments and institutional corruption there's not much you can do. Ah what we try and do is learn from every experience. According to dick one of the ways they've learned from past lessons is to include requirements in the whole city contract to make sure that labor practices are good quality. Control exists in an corruption is is minimized. But you know we don't have an army at our disposal. We depend on the good faith of the host country to to put that into execution knowing that they're the ones in the end the has to live with consequences if they get it wrong but what about the question of whether the cities and should be equally responsible for the outcome i had to ask. Cities are ultimately responsible for budget overtures. And any kind of losses that the games might bring economically is that true and if so is that fair flossy to not have to share in that. Yeah i mean. I think that's entirely normal The the country's sought to host the games and having examined the candidacy. We yes we think they can but they have to execute we we don't. We're not in the construction business or the urban planning business and you rely on responsible. Host city in host country government to ensured anything in the nature of infrastructure is properly done. Whether you choose to believe gills or dick's argument. One thing is clear hosting the olympics can be a risky proposition for cities. So that begs the question. Why do cities still bet on hosting the games. The only reason that city still bid on the olympic games is that it's because the elites in those cities bid on the olympics. We have an audience reaching to five or more billion people around the world at all who mar a united for a period of approximately two and a half weeks in watching the games and watching the finest athletes in the world from two hundred six national olympic committees them compete in these peaceful sort of idyllic conditions. And so there's there's a huge social impact there. the other reason is because it's become a real gem. You first sports washing and by that. I mean when you have unsavory dictators or authoritarians using sporting events to try to look impressive. Important on the world stage in ways that allow them to kind of shuffle. Under the rug a lot of misdeeds that are happening a good example of sports washing his upcoming beijing olympics in twenty twenty two or you'll see leaders from china and other leaders from around the world who are sort of more authoritarian bent using the games to stand on the pedestal. And look important. The olympic games will for most people always represent the best in what sports can mean and in many ways they are doesn't love the drama of seeing underdog nation when a competition who doesn't love seeing a lifelong dream fulfilled or learning about a new country. But should we ask ourselves. At what cost do we get to sit back and enjoy. The competition olympic spectacle is a powerful drug. And i think a lot of us know that from personal experience. And i think it's become increasingly difficult to square appreciation of athletes with the ugly underbelly of politics and economics didn't make the olympics happen. That's choose boycott author of no limpets and my former professor at saint. Mary's college of maryland. That's this week show. I'm routine at louis than that. The data

"You're listening to sway. My guest today is dick pound. He's been a member of the international olympic committee for more than forty years. He was also the founding president of the world anti doping agency serving on its foundation board through twenty twenty these days. He's a central character in the chaos surrounding the tokyo olympics. Look i'm no sports ball expert. Didn't even i know that. Tokyo twenty twenty has been a doozy for one thing. It's now tokyo. Twenty twenty one thanks to the pandemic and with the delta very play. There's a debate amongst athletes medical experts and fans about whether the games should take place at all. Finally there've been a series of high profile controversies related to doping involving athletes like shaquille richardson but of cause social media. In light of this chaos. I wanted to understand the decision to forge ahead with tokyo. And i wanted to dig into how someone like. Dick town looks the shifting balance of power between athletes public opinion and gatekeepers. Like the ioc dick pound welcome to sway. Thanks days to be with you. So i wanted to start by breaking down this decision to go forward in the tokyo olympics in february twenty twenty told associated press. That was more likely the games would be cancelled rather than postpone. Did you want to cancel. Or was that a prediction noah at the time i it looked like the organizers in the iot were in one of these school picnic things with a three legged race marching resolutely towards this precipice. And you have to. It's not going to happen. In twenty twenty and the old system was kind of binary a lighter went ahead or you cancelled. But the tokyo organizers were so good that they said look maybe there's another alternative which is to postpone and we think we can hold this whole bowl of jello together for a year but no longer than a year and we said well. Listen that's certainly preferable to canceling so let's explore that option and that's where we've been ever since both jello and also could raise his over cliff. That's kind of interesting metaphors to use. When you were thinking about it. Why not just cancel and move on a man you got if nothing else you've got thousands and thousands of athletes from two hundred six countries who've been training for this event for years and years and years and we've never faced a postponement before we face cancellations due to wars on three occasions and thought was that you know within a year. We would know an awful lot more about kobe than we did. In february or early march of twenty twenty which is true. Why isn't important to the olympics in play. i think it's important for the athletes. Be for learning how to respond to game changers. Like a covert. I mean. it hasn't been as something on the scale for century. Nobody in living memory can remember the you know the spanish flu as it was called and frankly the world at large needs some good news of this right. The motivation of we need the olympics. It's good for global mood. I suppose and then. There is the survival of the olympics from a financial point of view. It would have been easy to cancel if you're looking at this from a financial perspective. Only any stakeholder in something as complex as time sensitive as olympics goes through the risk assessment right and you ensure against those risks. It would've been easy for the ioc. Say okay we're out of here. The games cancel. Speak to your insurance. Get all the all the stuff that you've ensured financially in sort of complication wise. That would have been easy solution. There's potentially four million dollars in broadcast rights involved a not in the insurance business with the ifc. But i mean those are obvious risks against which you can insure yourself So the ifc has huge economic motive. Going forward the committee makes over ninety percent of its income from sponsorships and broadcasting rights. Could the olympics survive twenty twenty two twenty two thousand four of tokyo games were cancelled yes as we become bigger and more expert and more alert to the number of things that can go wrong. We've been building up for a number of years a war chest so we we can survive for sure and the amount of money that we provide the international sports better rations and the national olympic committees. Is there. it's a hit. It's a body blow but is not inaugural blow by any means in may have the olympics would proceed quote barring armageddon. It's not the end of the world but we do have delta variant slow vaccine uptake globally and in japan specifically and lockdowns in certain cities including tokyo does none of it. Give you pause so i mean we're on a daily or weekly basis in touch with the the public health authorities and the. Who just to keep a handle on this and say. Here's what we're doing here. So the japanese are planning to do. Does this amount to an appreciable increase in the risk eighty two athletes and be the japanese public at large right now. It may fan. Eighty-three percent of japanese citizens do not want their country to host. The olympics and paralympics took medical workers published a letter calling for the games to be cancelled. Do you consider these views. Of course of course but i mean you you look at the views and you respect the views but there are if i may say more informed views than the public at large and what tends to happen in in these things once the game start that becomes the story okay so moving with games why not implement a vaccination requirement for athletes who are competing the it it. It sounds like it's a you know a a an easy fix. It's not i mean cert- certainly for the ioc. It's not. we're not a public authority or a private organization weaken encourage and we've done everything we can the only ones who could institute something of that nature might be the japanese who say if you don't have the double banks nation. You're not allowed to come to japan and they haven't done. This is much bigger bubble then some of the other sports events that have gone on. There's many more athletes as many more of everything pretty much and obviously is not going to be spectators family and things like that. What is the biggest worry you have today would be that. There's some huge break of sort that hasn't been anticipated and planned for mean bubbles. Are all there. I mean you know when i get there on sunday afternoon. I'm going to be tested in an fine. I'm going to be put into a bus or car. That will take me directly to the hotel. And i'm going to be there In sort of semi isolation in the hotel and same with the athletes. They'll go by buses from the olympic village to the practice and competition area. It's all designed to limit. Any interaction between.

"Where co production of GBH NPR EX lesson six months now until the Tokyo Olympics with a lot of unknowns. This week, though International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach did make one thing clear. We are not a speculating off whether the games are taking place. We are working on how the games will take place. In other words, how to keep people safe from the coronavirus. The IOC is encouraging all participating nations to vaccinate their athletes. That's raising logistical and ethical questions, though even from the athletes, here's the world's Bianca Hillier. Rumors have been flying about if how and when Olympic athletes will receive the cove in 19 vaccine. The controversy started when some suggested that athletes would get priority access IOC president Box says That's not happening. There's no blueprint for this, and we are learning every day, but we are not in favor off athletes trumping the Cube. President. Bok emphasized that once health care professionals and vulnerable groups are taken care of then athletes should be offered the shots. Many athletes agree with this stance, even though it jeopardizes their chance of competing three time Paralympian meal. Fahey from the UK says he sees both sides of the coin. Certainly you know, you start to ask those moral questions of well if it was Between yourself and annulled early relative. Then who would you rather gets? The vaccine is quite a difficult one to answer difficult, he explained, because people devote years of their lives to the games, and for some Tokyo 2020 is their final chance to represent their country on the international stage. Then his mind goes to friends and family. You know, I had much rather see my parents vaccine before me because I'm far more worried about the potential health risks for them. As far as when athletes will be offered the vaccine. IOC President Thomas Bach has asked the 206 National Olympic committees to lead their own charge. It is upper tow each government to decide. About the vaccination about access to vaccination in their respective countries. Israel's Olympic Committee says it has already inoculated half of its athletes, while Denmark and hungry say their delegations will get vaccinated in a couple of months. And in Belgium, the country's Olympic committee has already asked its government to pledge 500 vaccines for Olympians and staff. Johan, Bellman's chief physician of the committee, told local media. He doesn't see this as asking for preferential treatment. So Zeke again voting tonight sister from the physical properties that made it started moving, he says. The intention is not to preempt health care workers and vulnerable groups. But we do want to protect our athletes. Obviously, we don't want our athletes to be at a competitive disadvantage. Meanwhile, other countries haven't even started administering the vaccine to essential workers or vulnerable groups, including the host country. Japan itself. Medical workers there are scheduled to get there first shots at the end of February. In the U. S. The CDC considers more than 60% of Americans to be essential workers or otherwise vulnerable to the virus, meaning healthy. Olympic athletes have a long time to wait until it's their turn. Well, it all happen in time for the games. Vivian Reef, Berg spent more than 30 years figuring out operational challenges like this in the health care industry, she says it's possible the number of athletes coming from any one country is on the one hand. Small number relative to the number of vaccines that could be going on. A few 100 athletes, she says, isn't a lot compared to a country of millions. But on the other hand, the distribution and availability of vaccines is very uneven around the world. And even within the wealthiest countries is not widespread referred added that unless more vaccines are widely approved and available, adhering to the IOC's timeline will be a challenge. British Paralympian Neil thought, he says to him. The timeline doesn't sound feasible when you consider how many of the population would be ahead of me. In reality of the point I would be offered. The vaccine is so far down the line. I'd be long past the games have happened, so I think it's inevitable. For US athletes were gonna be jumping the queue to some degree and I guess it's how much we jump it by is the question. I asked the IOC that question once essential workers and others in vulnerable groups are vaccinated. Will athletes then be first in line? Will they be prioritized over the non vulnerable general public? Via email. They declined to comment. The IOC is expected to share more tactics to safeguard the Tokyo Olympics next week. For the world. I'm Bianca holier and one more Olympic related note to share. The IOC is upping its commitments in the fight against climate change. It's setting a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by the end of the decade. IOC President Thomas Bach made the announcement yesterday. In addition to reducing our emissions, we will offset more than 100% off our remaining carbon emissions. The IOC is doing this through the Olympic Forest project combating desertification in Africa Suhel region Within three years. The IOC says it will actually be removing more carbon from the air than it emits, and we're not just talking wonky numbers here. The Olympics have a massive audience and the IOC and host cities are using their bullhorn to show off what they can do that next year's Winter Games in Beijing. All the venues are aiming to run on 100% renewable energy. Faster, higher, stronger and now greener. So let's talk about how carbon offsets exactly work like the one IOC president Thomas Bach mentioned that's on the agenda in our weekly look at climate change Solutions. The big fix way.

My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

Why It Matters

Remember the Olympics?

"I'll be the first to admit that I am not a huge sports fan. I don't follow the NBA and I tend to wander away from the TV during Football Games, but I do love to watch the Olympics, and that's because it's actually super cool to see whole nations rallying behind one team. It becomes something more than a game. It becomes this uniting cultural moment. It's like a global holiday, and so with a little bit of extra couch time on my hands I was very ready to tune into this summer's Tokyo Olympics the perfect distraction. But the July twenty twenty Olympic. Games aren't going to be held this month. They've been postponed by a full year. This decision wasn't made lightly. And in fact, Japan is working around the clock to try to figure out how to keep their games. Despite a global pandemic, it's part of a long story for decades. Just like their athletes. Countries have competed fiercely to host the Games despite mounting evidence that they usually represent a significant financial loss, and that made us ask why, if not money, what's the games offer that so special and worth so much effort I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today, the Olympics soft power and the deep running politics of the World Games. For many sports, the Olympics is the apex of what they can achieve as athletes, and it's a chance for the world to see incredible incredible athletes out there on the world stage.
