International Swimming Association, FINA, Is Laying Down the Law
"Here on this Leah Thomas thing. And what we just saw out of FI and a, fina, this is the organization that represents swimmers. It's recognized by the Olympic Committee recognizes swimmers all around the world. And they have finally put their foot down and they're like, okay, this isn't really working, right? It's not really fair. And so they've got a solution, they have issued a 24 page report, which basically says, if you have not transitioned to being a woman by the time you're 12 years old, then you gotta compete with the men or maybe this new open category that they're working on. I'm gonna get to that in a second. But first of all, here are the rules. Again, you have to be actually a woman and have transitioned and have started all that therapy by the time you're 12 years old or you can't compete with the girls. And the reason being is that even and science shows this, even as somebody who has taken all the appropriate testosterone blockers and all the appropriate hormones to transition to becoming female, if they haven't done that and they've been as a teenager a male, well, they've been able to build up muscle tone, right? That you wouldn't actually have as a female. I
Russians to compete as 'neutral athletes' at Paralympics
"Russian athletes had already been slated to compete as Russian Paralympic committee punishment for the state sponsored doping scandal at the twenty fourteen Sochi games international Paralympic committee president Andrew Parsons says neutral status is the harshest possible punishment they will compete under the Olympic flag and the Paralympic and them they will not be included in the medals table neutral status means blocking any reference to countries the RPC delegation must cover the RPC symbol on their uniforms in all official ceremonies and sporting competitions that includes Belarus the punishment doesn't involve just athletes the Paralympic honor bestowed to Vladimir Putin president of Russia has been withdrawn the international Olympic committee is pushing for exclusion of Russian athletes for international events I'm a Donahue
IOC calls for Russia to be excluded from sports
"The international Olympic committee is urging others to exclude Russia's athletes and officials from international sports events because of the country's invasion of Ukraine the decision includes Belarus which is allowed Russia to use its territory to station troops and launch attacks it was not a total ban were exclusion was not possible on short notice such as the winter Paralympics teams from Russia and Belarus will be allowed to compete as neutral athletes with no national flag FIFA declined to ban Russia from the World Cup but said that the country's national soccer team will have to compete as football union of Russia Poland Sweden and the Czech Republic has said they would refuse to take the field against them I'm
Charlie May Not Love the Olympics, But He Does Love Justice
"They're occurring? I really haven't watched much of the Olympics, but I do love justice. I have to say. And I don't like delighting in people's failure, but I don't like cheaters at all. You should not like cheaters and I do not like people who try to game the system for their own personal gain while other people are not given that same sort of advantage. So you've probably heard the story it was covered extensively of this woman, young girl actually, 15 year old camellia vala Ava. She fell twice during her free skate. Now she's a cheater, probably because the adults around her quite honestly. I feel sorry for her. She's been used to use by the Russian government as some sort of propaganda tool for skating. And the adults around here should know better and they shouldn't have been giving her these substances so she tested, let's say positive for a banned substance. So, oh, I see. Okay, the drugs allowed her to have more oxygen into her heart. That's really not necessary, I guess it is without the drug she falls down, I guess. I don't understand why you would be doping a 15 year old. And she's 15 years old and she's been used as a prop of the Russian government to try to propagandize the world towards what I don't know that the Russians are the best. No one actually believes that and obviously. I would expect this out of the Chinese Communist Party and I guess we should also expect it out of the Russian equivalent of that. And so she was allowed to compete because the Olympic Committee was saying that if she didn't compete that she wouldn't be too traumatizing for her to pull out from the Olympics, but that if she won the gold that there wouldn't be a there wouldn't be an Olympic ceremony and all this, but she just collapsed. She did terrible for her own standards. And I got to give NBC credit. I don't give NBC credit for a lot. There are Chinese owned and operated. They do deserve credit for how they handled it. I have to say they were they were good. And Johnny weir, who's tough to listen to at times overly dramatic and a lot of these things. I haven't listened to that in years. Nothing against him personally. He said something. They said, nope, that's not going to get it. They'll be gold silver and bronze in the women's event in Beijing and so that means that he left the Johnny weir system thank God. And

Why Are We Going to the #GenocideGames? Senator Marsha Blackburn Weighs In
"She is the proud representative, the senator of the great state of Tennessee Marsha Blackburn, welcome to America first. It is so good to join you. Thank you so much. Well, we have to discuss all the positive signs that even the Democrats are losing faith in the person they elected to The White House, but given the day that it is the opening of the Olympics in China, you have used a phrase. It's at the top of your Twitter account. Hashtag genocide games. Why are we even participating with this regime senator Blackburn? I have no idea why we are doing that. It is really quite frustrating to see that our athletes are there. And when you listen to Nancy Pelosi's comment. Now, the Democrats have been all for sending him over there. Let's go. China is just a competitor. They are not an adversary. Everything's going to be fine. And then she comes out and says, do not challenge her speak ill of the Chinese Communist Party while you're over there. We're concerned about your safety. You want to go really? It took a while to realize that our athletes going over there. That the Olympic Committee, which, by the way, has not stood up to the Chinese Communist Party. And that no one can guarantee that they're not going to be tracked or surveilled or followed, or that they are helped is going to be okay. They're not going to be exposed to something. So I think and I think we're all concerned for these athletes and for the manner in which these games are being carried

CNN's Jake Tapper Slams Major Corporations for Being 'Blinded' by Chinese Cash
"But Jake tapper mainly because of his concerns over paying Shui. Paying who is the tennis player? Am I getting that right? Accused China's former vice premier Jean galo of sexually assaulting her. And so then she disappeared, of course, because it's China. Tapper emphasized the world tennis association's attempt to protest China's brutality I'm reading from mediaite. I can't believe I'm reading from mediaite. It's kind of weird segment as this. Is far more strident than what the International Olympic Committee has done to prepare to host for the 2020 winter games. Tapper said, yes, the Olympics are supposed to be free without politics. But this is not about politics. The allegations against the Chinese government go far beyond his treatment of Shwe. That's the least of our concerns. But the real problem is that people that pay U.S. taxes and that are allegedly U.S. citizens, they have gotten unbelievably rich off of allowing China to rise to power. Many members at the top levels of the generation that came to power in the 70s and 80s, the septuagenarian generation, the Pelosi and Schumer's, they prioritized instant stimulus profits from Mainland China over the welfare of the nation. Here's CNN Jake tapper. I mean, he just unleashes on this. I'm sure he'll be reprimanded. Play cut 13 right now. That Simpsons episode in Hong Kong disappeared like Peng Shi. Disappeared, like citizen journalist Zhang Jian, whom the Chinese government has locked up for telling the truth about COVID-19. Disappeared like the consciences of the millionaires and billionaires in Hollywood and the NBA and the IOC and Wall Street are all so eager for Chinese cash. They are pretending none of this is happening. There is no amount of money that can buy enough soap to wash that blood off their hands. So, I'm going to give you the cynical interpretation that I'm going to give you the other interpretation. The cynical interpretation as Jake tapper doesn't believe that. And he found some sort of intern that isn't a Bolshevik at CNN and said, hey, I want the 9 p.m. slot for Fredo that was just fired. Can you just like take some of Tucker's monologues and then launder them through a CNN filter? And then let me say them because then I can get the 9 p.m. slot. That's the cynical interpretation is that Jake tapper found some intern that isn't a communist that CNN and wrote that monologue after that. I'll be honest, that was a copy paste of something that Tucker Carlson has been saying for the last three years.
Rep. Michael Waltz: Dictators Love the Olympics
"Dictators love the Olympics We all know what Hitler did after 1936 but fewer people realized that the last time the Ukraine was invaded Putin invaded the Ukraine just a few months after the 2014 Olympics in Sochi because they love it because it is a propaganda platform and everybody attending the entire world is turning a blind eye to their abuses to the authoritarianism It emboldens them And I do fear for Taiwan in the wake of the Beijing Olympics which is which is coming in February but just one other point mark The IOC the International Olympic Committee says well we don't do politics And you hear so many people left and right both parties saying well what are about the athletes and what have you Let me ask you this If the United States government had a million Muslims in concentration camps do you think those athletes would be demanding to compete Heck no They would be out protesting So why is it different than if China is doing And the other piece is the IOC had no problem getting into politics throughout the 60 70s and 80s when they boycotted South Africa over apartheid not only did they not allow an Olympics in South Africa they banned the South African Olympic team from participating anywhere for 30 years but I guess it's okay when it comes to apartheid in South Africa but for them to get involved there But they're going to turn a blind eye when it comes to these gross atrocities that are happening all over the world including inside China So and I think the answer is as you and I well know it's all about the money
Rep. Michael Waltz: U.S. Corporations, Athletes Should Fully Boycott the Olympics in China
"Is right around the corner I think case in point is what I'm calling the genocide Olympics I was the first in the house to call for a full boycott not just a symbolic gesture Biden just throughout of the diplomatic boycott The Chinese Communist Party could care less whether of a few U.S. officials come and go But a full boycott the U.S. corporations that stand to make millions and yes even the athletes themselves and the International Olympic Committee should be ashamed of itself for ignoring this genocide and ignoring the human rights abuses that are going on And ignoring the cover up of COVID and to see the American flag in just a few months flying in Beijing despite all of that second to mean my stomach In ways reminds me of the 1936 Olympics This isn't in any respect Quite parallels with a Holocaust but I'm talking about the rise of this regime rise of the fact that the west is really feckless It's like they're like ostriches Their head is in the sand I mean one group the women's tennis associations at standing up Well where's the men's tennis association Where are those tough guys on the NBA and the NFL

Who Decides Which Sports Are in the Olympics?
"So the delayed twenty twenty tokyo olympics happened the other week complete with thirty three sports and three hundred thirty nine events including four new sports and to discontinued sports. Brought back from the dead. That's the funny thing about the olympic games. The games themselves change almost every time in terms of new events. You might have seen the karate skateboarding sport climbing or serving you might have. I didn't what i saw. The olympics was mostly clips on my favorite memes site. The resurrected sports were baseball and softball. Last seen at the two thousand eight beijing olympics the international olympic committee had decided to make a commitment to the youth by bringing sports to them in urban environments. A pretty new point of view for the i. O. c. as well as to increase engagement for youth fans who are passionate about different sports from all over the world or dispassionate about sports as a whole these sports are also not coincidentally quite popular in japan so who decides what stays in. What goes that would be the aforementioned international olympic committee they oversee all aspects of the olympic. Games they run in it in the common parlance of the associations. Ninety nine members many are former athletes or current leaders in athletics from all over the world bonus fact one of the founders of buffalo wild wings was a lifelong figure skater who served on the ioc for a time. The ios's executive board proposes which sports will be included and the rest of the votes on them. A sport must cut certain muster to sway. Those voters there are five factors split into a further thirty five criteria. Such as. How long has the sport existed. How popular is the sport in the host country. How much would it cost to hold and broadcast the event and how much value the sport would be to the olympic legacy.

"Olympic Committee posted a new statement calling Maurice remarks absolutely inappropriate.

It seems to be little sympathy from Morey and his views. You started the whole Injun. I cannot be with us. I think he should resign, says I. T worker Jihad Ocean Ozaki.

If you're not actually part of the government, you know that all you have to do is make one phone call the morgue, and he's gonna know exactly you to talk to in order to get something done. David Lee Haney is a political scientist at Waseda University in Tokyo. He says. Mori has clout in the back rooms where the LDP discusses policy and makes deals. It's an old boys club. It's a club in which women generally aren't speaking or which women aren't playing leadership roles, And if they are, they're actually often criticized for being too ambitious for being too loud.

Japanese government said Friday that it's determines that the Tokyo Olympics will go ahead as planned this summer following an unconfirmed report in the Times of London that cancelation of the games might be imminent. More about the games from this weekend's Jennifer Krauchanka, organizer's of the Tokyo Olympics face a long list of obstacles as they attempt to carry out the postpone games in just six months. As Rachel Bachman of The Wall Street Journal tells us it's not just a rising co big cases around the world. That's a problem. Rachel. What are some of the issues for the summer games? Well, the real question right now is how quickly the vaccine the coroner, virus vaccine can be distributed around the world and Who will take it. So it seems a little bit surprising was surprising to me that there are some people the Japanese public who are skeptical about vaccines because of Previous vaccines that had problems and so nearly a third of the Japanese public said in October that they would not take a covert vaccine. And Dr Paolucci has said that is a zoo, much as 90% of the population would need to take it in order to Really inflate the public, so they're not just concerned about the athletes coming in. They're just trying to deal with covert in their own country First, that's right. But they really you know, because of the short time frame and six months is a fairly short time frame in terms of planning the Olympics. You really need to address all these things at once? Vaccinations have not yet begun in Japan, even among people who will take them s so that certainly is a concern of the clock ticks. And they're also our concerns in the U. S. You know, because of the American sort of Patrick system of The state by state distribution. It's very difficult to figure out how U S athletes might be vaccinated because it depends on where they live and what the policies are in their in their state and what access they have to vaccines. Um, So there's no current road map to vaccinating American athletes for the Olympics, either. Rachel. I was stunned by the numbers in your story about how many people in Japan are opposed to holding the games at all. Those were some staggering statistics. Yes. Yeah, You know, roughly. 80% of the public says the Olympics cannot or should not go on in July. When they're scheduled to start. Olympic organizers had said that they will not postpone the games again. You know they've already been postponed. One year s O. They said that essentially if they can't hold them then and they won't acknowledge that publicly now that that's a possibility. Then they won't hold them in all these Tokyo games, at least not, you know, in the next couple of years, so the stakes are very high. Ah, lot of revenue for not on the International Limpet Committee but Olympic committees around the world. Relies on this revenue from games mainly from broadcast rights and to a lesser extent on sponsorship, So whether these games go off or not as scheduled Um, really will determine to a large extent that the fate of Olympic committees and Olympians around the world in the near future we're speaking with Rachel Bachman of the Wall Street Journal. Rachel, is it Up to Japan to say no, We absolutely won't do this. Can they unilaterally say no summer games? Well, it's you know, these decisions tend to be made, You know, in partnership with the International Olympic Committee, however, you know if if someone in the Japanese government says no, we will not do this, You know, sort of like someone Who's invited someone over to their house, saying, I'm not gonna let you in. You know, it's a little difficult for the IOC to say we're going. We're going to show up anyway. Right? You know, Japan is the host nation and It's got to be willing to do this to accept, you know, over 10,000 Olympic athletes over 15,000 athletes, including Paralympians on DOF course, their coach's support staff and so on and so forth, so Japan really needs to be a willing participant in these games. Rachel, you mentioned earlier the patchwork of vaccinations in the United States. Do we know how training is going for the U. S athletes of this point? Well, it's they're doing better than they were at the start of the pandemic. When you know virtually all training centers, no universities in a lot of athletes used to train we're closed down completely. And people really have to get makeshift with their workouts. Most people can find places to train now. But what's happening is because you know, in part because of this more contagious strain that's starting to circulate. Athletes tend to be shying away from things like team camp so they might have to travel to another state and gather with other people to train or even, you know, preliminary competitions that they might usually use to sharpen their skills in a non secure summer. Shying away from those thinking, you know, maybe it's not worth the risk. Getting infected, too, You know, T take that step, so they tend to be sort of sticking close to home to train a lot of them. And it's difficult to say what the impacts of that might be on the games that they go off This weekend's Jennifer Could Shankar with Wall Street Journal Sports reporter Rachel Bachman 30 minutes now after the hour on this weekend..

But what I mean is is that they go to places where their structures in place if nations wanna build structures, Okay, fine.

The reason they want of getting the Colts and were able to keep the patients and everything else is because they were hopeful of getting the Olympics and even though they kind of We focused to be the kind of city that could host the Olympics is I understood it. This is a long time ago. I heard about this in the nineties. What they did is they get they got the Pan American games or something like that in 87 has, but as a result of that As a result of that, you know, they become Indy. The interview that we see now that has done a fine job of kind of reinventing itself and not just you and motor sports, but a lot of others. Obviously. Yeah, That's where And these Unfortunate nickname of Naptown came because for years and years and years, that was always your way in the 500 may in the rest of the year, the city was asleep. And the Colts change that in 84. When they came for Baltimore and the then who's your dome became relevant. Um The came in and 67 started in the A. B, A went to the MBA. So E. I mean, there's a lot of cities that you could make. The argument could host the Olympics. But it's until the International Olympic Committee Stops turning this into a high bitter thing. Um I mean, it almost feels like the IOC feels a lot like the NC double a well how many IOC members have been arrested and or in in big trouble financially? Or or you know, like I said, arrested or whatever, because of the shenanigans that they pulled off. I mean, maybe it's just time to re look at this thing.

They're like we're going to see what the NC double a tournament or what had here or You know, somewhere in Germany and etcetera, etcetera and just use the facilities that are available at the time. Well, I mean, I think we're seeing this a lot with soccer right now. Look at point. Look at FIFA and and the people who put together the World Cup. How many? How many executives in that organization that we've seen in the last five years? That either have been charged with something or we're under suspicion of something. Um And and I'm probably getting the country wrong on this, but is it wasn't Dubai?

C. is the amount of time that it would save these these athletes from having to make those tough decisions absolutely Serra and that's that's what has driven that and that's why when we first heard of it to be a few months because of course July twenty fourth is still a few months away obviously four months away so well we've got so many things that have been centered and and have a foothold in March or April could have been canceled or postponed men's and women's final in a tournament at the masters obviously the N. B. A. N. N. H. Chelsea goes on hold those kinds of things we haven't got all right all the way up to July yet so the thought was you would have time right and that's what we've been thinking until we started to hear the athletes voices and for example last week I interviewed Lilly king Willie is a two time Olympic gold medalist in swimming breaststroke she's training down in Indiana University Bloomington Indiana are you closes so that pool closes she had a couple over training mates and go to the YMCA two time Olympic gold medal swimming at the Y. like you and I would and of course after a few days of that

we're selling sweets were selling tickets were selling memorabilia will people want to some prime time football the number twelve Jersey no disrespect to Chris Godwin are even way back in the day to Trent Dilfer but the number twelve Jersey is gonna get sold that boxers gonna get sold more than it ever has before so this is a great business move I like it for a lot of reasons but to automatically put them in the Super Bowl way too soon that's an overreaction for me as well but they NFC south is going to be a heck of a lot harder in the AFC east was for a long time so you're already in a tougher division you're gonna have to face Matt Ryan and drew Brees so right off the bat that's an issue then you look at just the adjustment from a learning curve perspective not necessarily for Tom

Irish things so definitely big different experience levels there but it was really neat I have a lot of fun I think the fans really enjoyed it I wasn't sure how it's gonna go we definitely crashed a

I'm therefore it, I'm not a purist, though, on is this a real sport and doesn't need to be in the Olympics, because quite frankly, a lot of the sports in the Olympics are a little weird and sort of made up. And, you know, like steeplechase in the civility run in like you jump over over something or. You run a marathon events stopping do target practice in the Winter Olympics. Then that's Nordic right? That's like a thing. Like, is that really a sport? He just kind of taping a bunch of other things together in calling it an event. So if this is what they think is going to be popular. I just I was my fan of the idea of ballroom, dancing. I know. That's sounds hokey. Sure. And I'm telling you, my mom dancing with the stars legs. Just when I read it, I was like this feels like what sixty year olds think will make the Olympics popular 'cause I on aware of the resurgence in break dancing? I guess I didn't know it came back. It will appeal to a younger generation, I don't know because only a younger generation can actually do it. There aren't going to be forty year old break dancers at the Olympics. There might be you. You gotta be young man. That is a young man young man's game. It was the young man's game. Alright Steve based actually all they'll do this.

Think I think we're the next NBA champions mean my gut set as much as I'd love it to be quiet. My gut says, somehow it's going to be kyri because if Kawhi chain is conference that changes. That's it. Right. Toronto's gonna probably rebuilding. Yeah. Although Marcus all just opted in for me, but Mark Sol's not going to be the difference between winning losing.

"olympic committee" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan
"Terms and conditions apply. Now, we can get back to the show. I'm curious if you've done work where you know, it's actually like within a specific organization that, you know, it's not necessarily an entrepreneur trying to network, but perhaps it's like within a specific company of, you know, bringing people within that little community together. I'm curious if there's been any kind of work that you've done around that. This past summer in about three month span I was hired to speak to Lincoln and bell media, which is like a broadcast media platform in Canada. And then the Olympic Committee so miserable. Olympics like for Canada the Olympics here. So the Canadian Olympic committee. So I mean team Russia doesn't know anything about. Yeah. Maybe someday. So these are all large companies unique personalities and mutually exclusive from each other. And in each of them, I was basically just talking about appreciation recognition giving thanks at organizational level because me running my own business hitting the road a lot like right mound. Thank you cards. That's impactful, but highly different world from one of these companies in what's exciting for me is that I'm going into these massive companies. And I'm speaking people every time in my head. I'm like this is kinda like, I'm literally. Yes. Vote handwritten thank-you cards and every time even at fireside every time I get so my head. I'm like, I should have sleepy telling him something that's like powerful impactful and innovative because simple. Simple, basic, and so. It seems like it could be something that's very surface level. I could I can understand where you would maybe getting your head and like second gusts that and be like this is a big company. This is linked in. And I'm talking about. Thank you. Right. Yeah. Some literally coming in with these like boxes of blank, thank you cards. I'm heading pens and already like they're sitting there with their ipads with their cell phones. Or like, you know, getting thrown because go work to do. And I'm like you go to go. I mean, you experience it a fire set you walked in you got a blank card. You've got a panel. Everyone's like, okay. Yeah. Sure. I don't know what I'm gonna do it. This. But but there's some mistake to like. All right. I'm kind of listening in every time I speak to these companies. I'm reminded at the end like, oh, this this was the powerful impactful innovative thing because everyone's so focused on tech everyone so focused on scaling everyone so focused on speed in fishy in how can we just like copy paste? So you come in with this seventeen hundreds method of feather Panin piece of paper. Yeah. And it's so it in itself is innovative because innovation is just something different. And now the things that are old are now becoming rare which therefore become new, and I love it. Because. All it is asking people to pause and do a thing that they likely have done which is for nothing related to money for nothing related to job description for nothing related to deadlines. Think of someone that's important to you and tell them when they don't expect it, and it shakes people up like people, they get stressed state might like it might cry. They might get excited might giggle. I have people making live phone calls inside the company like I literally have people come on stage in their phoning like their sister. Their husband their parent their old college roommate in inviting them to just give them a random. Thank you. And it makes people freak out. But they're so excited to do with only I don't know. This is weird. And hit is weird. I save at this is a weird. But but it's important as the powerful stuff. The and these are the things that unfortunately or source, mentally when there's tragedy we do this like if there's a natural disaster, or if there's a sudden death or even a desk just that we knew would come in our family or life.
