"The american resnick group. Did not advance finals finishing eleventh. We're not that great in that area. But that's okay so i want to finish out. Maybe we'll do another olympic close out episode because obviously we didn't go over All of the sports we wanted try and stay on topic. But you know we don't want a four hour episodes separated But this is going to be the first part of close out so it will one. I want to finish with though is olympic scandals. Oh okay now are kept up with scandals in nineteen thirty six in the nineteen thirty six olympics. Going back okay. Well this was a very big scandal so now remember around. Wartime this is nazi germany. Gains everything was in berlin berlin and it was held just the right time when the nazis were rising to power. And there's pictures you can fly with the nazi flag and the olympic flag next to each other and people full leading the streets. It's just it's it's kinda creepy. This was three years into hitler's horrifying reign as dictator of germany. Berlin was chosen as site of the nineteen thirty six olympics. Before hitler had come to power. Like i said so. There were questions of whether or not he would go through with the games. 'cause there assist sessions so in the end he did an historians state he and his Friends saw games as an opportunity to spread propaganda and demonstrate the power of the nazi regime on an international stage. So yeah that's crazy. Also he was so. I mean he literally was the person that opened the games. Yeah but at the time the gestapo which is the secret police of nazi germany. They were gaining power in jewish. People were being persecuted in germany and across europe and some american jewish athletes had boycotted the games in protest. It was difficult because when jewish athletes won. They weren't treated as such so. That was that and just kinda crazy. The timing of things and how it was used and all that but Yeah so moving onto the nineteen fifty six games. This was in melbourne which is actually going to be again very soon so he thirty two thirty so never and saw boy cost boycotts over multiple international crisis. So there has been a lot of boycotts before but this one was just one of the key ones so in the nineteen fifty six summer olympics. It took place in november and december to accommodate the summer schedule of the southern hemisphere. So they were the first games to be staged outside of the northern hemisphere by the way and these games were also affected by a number of boycotts egypt. Lebanon and iraq refused to participate in the protest of the israeli invasion of the I think it's sinai peninsula and the netherlands. Spain and switzerland opted out due to the decision not to suspend the soviet union over its invasion of hungary so tensions but and people's republic of china also boycotted the games because taiwan was allowed to compete right and now and now in twenty twenty. It's called chinese taipei. So how did that go. It'll be it'll be interesting to see how taiwan and hong kong are treated In february at twenty twenty two winter olympics beijing. Yes that's a good point. So as i said months before the olympics started the olympics is also political and because it's international. Yeah because it's international. It affects the world when good things happen goes throughout the world. With bad things happen. It also goes throughout the world. And how politics does affect sports. And how good you are. Actually kind of intertwined. Tensions over the soviet beijing of hungary came to blows after a water polo match. That came to be known as blood in the water. So throughout the game store players were taken out of pool for unsportsmanlike conduct. By the fourth. Quarter the hungarians. Were leading the russians for show when russian athletes valentine prokop of punched bulgarian zadora in the face. Zadora said he saw four thousand stars and felt warm blood pouring down in the moments after the attack the game ended. Prematurely was the hungarian Staking victory and being escorted from the pool by australian officials. The hungarians went onto win gold against yugoslavia in their next match. That's just crazy bod and this is water polo polo without issur national asian conflicts. That you it is still pretty violence or level. Yeah so. I hope that guy ended up. Okay the moving onto the nineteen sixty eight mexico games. They were preceded by a massacre so ten days before the opening ceremony in the united sixty eight mexico city games the country was rocked by the lemme on. I didn't take spanish so let me try to say this. Tele local massacre eyesight. Looks like yeah something like that. I'm sorry anyone of spanish origin. I did not take spanish but students fighting for their right to protest and demonstrating against the government's imprisonment of political prisoners and their right to protest. Shut down in the street by the mexican military fifty years later. The death toll from the massacre is still unknown. Although at the time student leaders estimated one hundred and ninety protestors. protestors had died. The government had only claimed it was twenty six so some covering going here Historians state of massacres stemmed from the government's feared students protests would disrupt the upcoming olympic gains.

Epl thanks for roger benefits of friend of the pod. Michael o'neill sent me a iran a box of swag including this mug. So here we are. Thank you michael. Nice shout out olympics. Lots of news. This week i question. What's your favorite thing. You watch I have to say like the olympic watching experience has been transformed somewhat having kids and it's very cool have kids in like be introducing them to the olympics for the first time so me personally like i was really into watching like our alaskan swimmer like crush it and win a gold medal cool. I was really into watching. Our women's volleyball team is just fucking bad us But my kids like the dress. Odds came on right and we were drugs for the pod but like normally kind of switch the channel or alex. Yeah you make a joke but like my daughter's like could not get their brains around these giant dancing horses you know. They're cool and so suddenly it's a good example of how when you have kids like your whole experience of sports immediate changes like i'm sitting there watching and kind of appreciate i'm i guess. I am voting some shittier but like just watching my kids freak out because in. What's cool about. Is this part of what i love. The olympics like there are people that like all they do is learn how to make like some horse. Danja now granted. I know this is kind of a privileged sport. But like the board like volleyball's the same thing or water polo or all these things like the the amount of time that people have put into doing these somewhat obscure things very cool to me the and then like the number watching volleyball. You just realized how many like six foot five to six foot seven men and women there are in the world who can just hammer a ball like one hundred miles an hour. Yeah yeah it's unbelievable. I just say to you. I was kind of like I enjoyed watching the men's basketball even though we lost. And don't ask me. This is not a trump comment. 'cause i was kinda proud as an american like that that everybody else has gotten so good at this game. That kind of we created is kind of validation of life. You will take like now granted i. I think they're going to figure it out. Like i am waiting to like you know the. Us team defined the other gear here. Yeah i bet they will. I kind of like the weird sports. Like i don't need to. I just watched the nba finals. Only need to see more basketball. But like see handball. Leap into some area and gun the thing. I watched a little rugby last night. And i pissed people off by saying that the rules are incomprehensible. I stand by that statement and the edible. I took while draft man But i admire how tough those people are just like. I don't like football without path crushing each other. It's very impressive. We are the point the olympics though. Where i'm like okay. I've seen enough swimming probably. Yeah yes the. I'm not i can't yeah i mean there's a what but the the tunisian That was really yeah. I mean like that. That's kind of moment. They can only happen at the olympics. Right where i mean. Same thing with like a swimmer from alaska right where this is. I think one fifty meter pool in the whole state but like virtually guy to to win. You know that everybody in tunisia's like freaking out about that in a good way. Everyone should check out this video. Eighteen year old. Tunisian guy ahmed half new. He wanted surprise gold medal in the four hundred meter freestyle. He the slowest qualifying time. All eight people in his heat but he managed to pulled out and there's a viral video of his family back in tunisia basically like filming themselves watching the race and they lose their mind and it's like the most pure awesome thing. Yeah there is a viral video of you. Know the people in alaska watching lydia jacoby including like her classmates everything people like freaking out and then cuts their parents and they're crying that i'm kind of like come tearing up. I'm kinda like actually to go back to where we started like mimi. So pissed about like trump in this. This culture were stuff entering olympics. 'cause i remember as a kid like feeling like we were all backing these athletes. Can we just like all find unity and sports here. That's what the olympics are supposed to be about if the venue for your your culture war. Yeah i've seen people saw this. Phoenix rally trump raised. The women's soccer team losing to sweden. He said it was because of woke ism. He got the mold the boo them. It's just like it's so hard for me to get over. Our president united states rooting against an olympic team rooting against america. And the sort of feeling of political impotence. That comes from not immediately knowing that we can use that clip to bury his political career that just world. That's what would happen. Well and weird way like i like. We're talking about tunisia. Which is opposite going through a bunch of shit right now but like it makes me happy that other countries are so pumped to you know like i've obviously want the. Us outlets usually rooting for them. Obviously must like they're just not in the competition. But like the i. I'm happy for the other countries when they're totally psyched. Particularly if it's like a small philippine philippines weightlifter won the gold medal and it was like the best thing to happen to the country. Cool yeah i'm into it. I mean let's go to question. I think some people might have. Which is why. The russian team has such a weird name. The rock use their country name flag or anthem so the short answer is because they're cheaters and never forget that there are a bunch of cheaters. the russia olympic committee. Team the rock. They're using that name because it's part of their punishment for using pd's and conspiring to cover up the evidence of that pd us at the sochi olympics. The penalty extends through the twenty twenty two winter olympics as well. So these russian athletes who weren't part of the doping Weren't subject to these suspension will participate. But just this weird confusing way. Ben do you think this is. I don't know to me. This doesn't seem like much of a punishment for like a bunch of people taking steroids in a systematic way in covering it up. I don't know but there's still basically competing. Yeah i mean and just so people get the fact that this was like a next level cheating shit you know like bought putin as bond villain kind of thing you know. The russians were hosting the search olympics. The russians are. I'll have like this kind of fixation. The olympics obviously putin does himself and yeah a lot of athletes. are you know doping. This was the most systemic thing like the russian intelligence services brought into this.

"It has its own structure. You can place pressure onto it and and there could be a long discussion about whether or not the olympics should be in beijing. I don't think they should be in beijing. I don't think the winter olympics belong in beijing at all. But lord knows they're not coming back to calgary we could have them here. We can have in vancouver. But i think that if we had them there'd be so much outrage people would be so upset about you know all the politics are all the issues. What i wanna sure is the olympics. Continue to happen if we have to go to beijing. If we have to go to russia we have to go to places like that because western democracies have decided that sport is bad. Then whatever Vancouver or calgary could host those olympics and fifteen minutes But of course we're not going to because people are you know people don't want people actually don't want it to go to utah want to. They don't want it to go to canada. They want it to be outside of of our norm outside of western democracy. So this is what you get.

"Essentially what the international olympic may is. They forced tokyo. They forced their host cities to spend billions of dollars to build infrastructure. And prepare for these games and then the ioc takes most of the revenue from them. You say forest but the host cities vie for the honor of hosting the games right but when you say that out loud it sounds like there are a bunch of chumps getting more and more unpopular to bid for the olympics. It is been the reason is very much. Intangible it's the international prestige that you get from hosting the olympics. And that's why you see. A lot of countries like china for example and russia wanting to host the games but more and more people are realizing that it is a terrible economic decision. Does the olympics. I mean you've said that. Hold cities hostage. It's this extremely one sided contract. They signed with every host city. Who wins wins the right the quote unquote right. To host. The games it gives most of the revenue. Ioc and heaps all of the risk which we're seeing come to the surface now onto the host city. The was the only one with the right to cancel these games to make any sort of changes to the plan to the host contract whereas if tokyo tried to get out of this they would be on the hook for billions of dollars in damages. They would have to cover the legally if the were to be sued by broadcasters sponsors for not delivering on on their deals yes so let me just see if i understand this correctly so the international olympic committee has all of the deci decision making authority here about whether the games take place but if they cancelled the games or the games went for whatever the only people who have the risk the the monetary exposure is the host country yes the the host country and the organizing committee have to indemnify the basically always and they have to waive all sorts of legal protections when they sign this contract which they signed way back in two thousand thirteen so yes the ifc ifc prophets and host cities barrel the risk. You know the international olympic committee has said the reason. We're doing this for the athletes. do you think that's fair to some extent. But it's it's good pr to say they're doing it for the athletes. It's obviously not good. Pr to say they're doing it for themselves. And for money and for the future of the olympic movement. The answer is that they're probably doing it for both of those things. And i think there are people at the ifc who generally do have the athletes best interests in mind but there are a lot of other cases where the irs has shown that it is ioc first athletes second. When is the time when they've kind of left. The athletes behind the the basic economic structure of the olympics where athletes don't get that much money for competing in the olympics and aren't allowed to promote their own sponsors at the olympics they have to promote ioc sponsors which the ioc gets a lot of money for there are rules that prohibit freedom of speech at the olympics that prohibit protests than peaceful demonstrations. They're all sorts of rules. Where the. I ac- assumes that the olympics are so attractive that ifc forces them to conform to what the ifc wants. I wonder if you've talked to any athletes who may be feeling this kind of internal division. I mean they're not gonna get the broadcast revenue from the olympics. But this is kind of pinnacle achievement. If you are someone who's a competitor you want to go and you want to prove yourself. Are there any stories of athletes that stand out to you who are trying to make this decision about what they do here now the vast majority of them do want to compete for all the reasons you just mentioned and it also that if you think about three years and eleven months in between olympic games if you put that too if you if you if you outright cancel these olympics and make it seven years eleven months in between olympics. That's the span of a lot of olympians entire careers. That's their window to to have this chance to accomplish. A lifelong dream. Never mind money or anything like that. People just their dreams and they put so much time and energy and there is that just that tension within within their minds of the pandemic versus their own dreams. I wonder if you think whatever happens with. This olympics is gonna trickle down to future olympics. And how like i wonder if other potential host cities are watching and wondering whether an olympics investment actually makes sense or whether they need to be thinking about their contract with a little bit differently negotiating. A little bit harder. I think that's absolutely. I think it's a great call. And that's absolutely what's going to happen and it was already getting increasingly unpopular to bid for the picks and that's why for example. Beijing is going to host the winter games in eight months fourteen years after hosting summer games in two thousand eight. The reason for is nobody else wanted to host the twenty twenty two winter olympics. It came down to beijing and a city in kazakhstan The has to some extent acknowledged this and realize that they are starting to make more concessions to host cities and just try to make hosting the olympics more viable. But it's still very one sided. And i think this whole saga is setting off alarm bells in a lot of people's minds who might potentially bid for future olympics. That you know there's a lot more downside here than we realize and maybe there's less upside than we realize as well and maybe this isn't something we should do. Henry's been asking people if they think the tokyo olympics will go on. He says most folks give ninety percent chance. The games are going to happen when i asked how many of those people think the games should happen. I think they should happen. You wanna go the olympics. I would want to go to the pex.

It's the most horrific thing we've seen one to three million people in concentration camps The use of forced abortion enforcer legislation to bring the numbers of children down The kidnapping of their children and raising them in a non weaker setting This is outrageous. It's cheating ping the dictator of china. It's doing it. It's his idea.
