UN expert advising IOC gives views on Russians at Olympics
"A UN expert advising the International Olympic Committee says Russian athletes who have actively served in the military invasion of Ukraine should be allowed to return to international sports if they didn't take part in any war crimes. The UN special repertoire of a cultural rights, Alexander zanthe, said late Sunday, only Russian military members implicated in the allegations of war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity or propaganda for war should be denied neutral status to compete in international sports ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics, some fakey has angered Ukrainian athletes who took part in an IOC hosted call to consult them ahead of an Olympic announcement to Tuesday to update guidance for sports bodies, 16 months before the opening of the Paris games.

World Athletics Says Trans Women Banned From Female Sports
"Women were no longer allowed to compete in female track and field events regardless of their levels of testosterone world athletics president Sebastian Coe, announced, speaking after a meeting of the global track and field federation's decision making body co said, the council has agreed to exclude male or female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty from female world ranking competitions from March the 31st this year. And he said that the world athletics had consulted with stakeholders, including the International Olympic Committee and national federations. The majority of those consulted stated that transgender athletes should not be competing in the female category. Many believe there is insufficient evidence that trans women do not retain advantage over biological women and want more evidence that any physical advantages have been ameliorated before they are willing to consider an option for inclusion into the female category. The judgment we took was, I believe, in the best interest of our sport. We're not saying no forever, adding that a working group headed by a transgender person would be created to further monitor scientific developments. Now, this is interesting. The decision has divided opinion. Fair play for women, a UK based body, which says its aim is to defend the sex based rights of women and girls, welcome the move. This is a reversal of their unfair testosterone suppression policy and makes good on co's commitment to protect female sport.

IOC's Bach says Olympics on history's side in Russia issue
"Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky says Russian athletes have no place in Olympic competition, but they would win top prize elsewhere. If the Olympic spores were killings and missiles strikes. But the head of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach says. They've been advised by the UN, they can't discriminate against athletes from Russia and Belarus. History will show who is doing more for peace, the ones who try to keep lines open and to communicate and the ones who want to isolate or divide. During World War II, Germany and Japan were excluded from the 1948 London Olympics. I'm Jackie Quinn

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

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

"us olympic committee" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"39 in Brooklyn And was suspended by the U.S. Olympic Committee The IOC has never confirmed that he created the rule in response to those 1968 protests But athletes are increasingly holding global sports organizations accountable for racial injustice and other inequities And the IOC still seems unwilling to get rid of this rule Will 50 has become one of the most prominent battlegrounds for racial justice and human rights and modern sport And that is because you know if we look at rule 50 we can see that it's clearly targeting minoritized athletes One of the key cornerstones of the IOC argument is that IOC will 50 must stay intact to preserve the neutrality of the games Scholars like me and others that came before me specifically those for minoritized communities have argued long ago that sport is never neutral because a lot of the social ills we see in society We see in sport And if we just assume that sport is neutral and we don't do anything about it then we just reinforcing those injustices those inequities You know and despite the controversy surrounding rule 50 and IOC athletes commission involving more than 3500 athletes a majority of participating athletes did not think it is appropriate for athletes to express individual views during the opening ceremony or on the podium or even on the field of play Yannick what do you make of that I'm actually bringing it out because early I mentioned that one of the cornerstones of the argument of the IOC has been that sports should be neutral which is a fallacy It's never neutral The other core piece of the argument is that survey that you referenced the way the survey was set up was flawed There was leading questions and there was some major flaws in the methodology First of all the majority of the athletes came from one culture context the cultural context that it was most represented was China and China has been very outspoken to keep rule 50 intact You're not tracking any racial demographics and the rule is clearly targeting racially minoritized populations So right now looking at the data we don't know if a lot of the folks who responded are basically minoritized And again that's where the rule is targeting But these last Olympic Games in Tokyo actually is up a little bit on that German hockey player Nico Lawrence who wanted to wear a rainbow armband doing a hockey match and that is a violation of rule 50 because it's viewed as a symbol of protest advocating for the rights and humanity of LGBTQ people around the world But the IOC approved that protest So they were actually violating their own rule which kind of hints at some of the larger issues at play here that one of the major critiques globally surrounding will 50 years is that athletes don't know what the consequences are Do you think Yannick at all that we as a society are putting too much responsibility on athletes to raise concerns about things like human rights I would say yes and no In an ideal world we wouldn't need athletes to speak up on those things because they wouldn't exist in the first place I do think that you know nobody forces athletes to speak out and even folks who work with athletes nobody forces athletes to speak up I think right now we are at a time where athletes are increasingly wanting to use their platform to call attention to global injustices racial injustices social injustices But you know I think one of the misperceptions is that if we change rule 50 to allow for those kinds of protests and demonstrations that every single athlete will be expected to speak up But that's actually not what we want We just want to make sure that folks who decide to speak up to use the Olympic and Paralympic platform which arguably is one of the biggest platforms we have to call attention to racial and social injustice globally that those who choose to speak up don't get punished for it Yeah and ahead of the Beijing winter games that athletes were warned about speaking out about human rights issues over concerns of their safety Yannick is the Olympic movement complicit in helping China to cover up its human rights violation If we go through the whole Olympic Games and we hear and see nothing nothing at all from athletes Is the Olympic movement complicit here That's the $1 million question And if you ask people like me who study and research and advocate for athletes to be heard I would say absolutely I mean the IOC has made some leeway in centering human rights and they say that's they say that in their argument that they want to promote human rights that their movement is about humanity and bringing people together But the reality is is that their policies their practices don't support that I mean just leading up to the Beijing games there's a lot of very well respected human rights organizations like the Human Rights Campaign human rights laws The center for sport in human rights Australian human rights institute all speaking up saying you are not living up to your potential as the IOC you should be more proactive in centering human rights You have to have mechanisms in place that make sure that countries who have some of the stark is violations of human rights don't get to host your games because what you're allowing them to do is to support wash their horrific human rights records and just use the games to prevent themselves as open minded forward thinking nations when in reality there is severe human rights violations Which is what is happening in China right now So I think as long as the IOC and the IPC don't have those mechanisms in place they're absolutely complicit That is Yannick klutz assistant professor and director of inclusive excellence in the center for sport leadership at Virginia Commonwealth university.

"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.

Here and This time she was testifying against the fbi and the us olympic committee they Just some strong words and strong accusations about the fbi. That really no one is saying are false. I mean pretty much. Everybody is agreeing. That the fbi messed up olympic gymnast. Simone biles held back tears on wednesday. She told lawmakers how the fbi and us jim gymnastics. Olympic officials failed to stop the sexual abuse that she and hundreds of other athletes suffered from. Former dr larry nassar play a clip. Real quick here from abc seven. With some of your gonna hear a couple of congress. People talk you're going to hear simone biles talk as well here and just kind of take you through this story just a little bit. Here's abc seven about the simone biles test testifying to be clear. I blame larry nassar. And i also blame an entire system that enabled perpetrated his abuse. Nassar was sentenced to up to one hundred seventy five years in prison in twenty eighteen from molesting hundreds of gymnasts an actuality. He turned out to be more of a file than he was a doctor. Senators are asking how the fbi overlooked these painful accusations and bungled investigation into nassar. I had two separate opportunities to do. Its job and it failed in a scathing report in july. The justice department inspector general found. Fbi agents failed to respond with the urgency required once. They learned about the allegations in twenty fifteen. The report said f. b. i. Agents then tried to cover up their mistakes. The agency's failures allowed a sexual predator to continue to abuse. More than seventy young women. That is inexcusable. Fbi director christopher. Wray also testifying. He was not in charge of the agency at the time of the investigation. But the f. b. i. has said its handling of the case was appalling. The actions and inaction of the fbi employees detailed in this report are totally unacceptable. So you can hear kind of the the the motion right and some of the sickness that you can hear in simone biles voice even just however many years later having to relive something like that is just i mean i. it's horrific. It is horrific in one of the clips. Simone biles says that larry nassar is right where he belongs in. she's not wrong. She goes out to say to be clear. I blame larry. Nassar and i also blame an entire system than a enabled in perpetrated his abuse. She said before the senate judiciary committee alongside fellow gymnast. Michaela moroni alley razman and maggie nicols byles outta the usa gymnastics and the us olympic and paralympic committee failed act while the fbi quote turned a blind eye. It's i mean what's going to come out of this. This is what. I want to know like the whole reason for this judiciary committee. Why you've got the new head of the fbi. Say and yeah. They messed up they. They didn't pay attention. So what happens. Now i mean do these gymnasts are they do they. File lawsuits against the fbi do they. I mean what happens and this is just another stain. Another stain on the usa olympic committee especially in the gymnastics world. Byles added that the usa gymnastics and the us olympic and paralympic committee failed. Act again. While the turn that blind eye the emotional hearing paint a damning picture of the fbi which botched botched the nassar investigation so badly that he was able to continue abusing more victims for over a year before he was finally arrested. Fbi director. Chris rate made no excuses. You just heard him talk he also He fired one of the agents who had falsified the details of maroney's two thousand fifteen interview about the abuse on no planet is what happened. In this case acceptable he said later. Adding the conduct of the agents who botched the case was beyond the pale. Mikhail maroney had She not as much Not tears there is anything like that. But more anger ner voice maroney recalled. How in two thousand fifteen. She spent three hours on the phone telling the fbi the details of her story that our mother had not even heard including accounts of sexual abuse. She endured during the olympic games in london by nasser whom she described as more of a pedophile than he was a doctor. Here's the thing that frustrates me. Just a little bit. His when this story came out. I mean rocks the sports world right. It rocked everything but now that this is still going on you. Don't see as much coverage about it. This is absolutely a life altering life altering problem that has been plaguing gymnastics for quite some time. It is nowhere to be found on the top headlines on the four letter network in the sports world is nowhere to be found. Nassar in case you're wondering Nassar has been sentenced found guilty in three separate cases with one of the prison sentences. Running up to one hundred and seventy five years so that creep a pedophile. That piece of garbage will be in prison until the day he dies. It was not until july of this year however that she said the justice department inspector general revealed an escape the report. What the fbi actually did with the information she provided it failed to document it for a year and a half and misrepresented what she told them about her experience. Not only did the fbi. Now report my abuse but when they eventually documented it my report seventeen months later. They made entirely false claims about what i said. Maroney said this is something that has to absolutely change. Look there are a lot of lot of terrible people out there. Looking to take advantage of the youth men and women alike boys and girls alike but we have to. We have to know. We have to let people know regardless of race regardless of gender regardless of sexuality. If something like this happens to you that you're going to be represented fairly accurately and quickly and that your report is going to be taken seriously especially when you had in this situation with the us gymnastics team when you've had so many people come forward with it.

I guess it comes down to. Who's the audience that well like for. Most things disabilities related. I asked my sister disabilities activists caitlyn's deal in michigan. How she felt about being inspired or not by these paralympics go. I'm kate deal. I've been a quadriplegic for about eleven years and i honestly knew nothing about the paralympics before i became paralyzed was the first time i watched the games. I couldn't pick me up off the floor For my perspective the word inspiration is used so often towards disabled individuals. And in my case it's often received with a silent i roll or fake grin As someone with a disability you're used to being the underdog but at the end of the day we're all just living life that being said these athletes disabled or not are not only inspirations act. That's probably an understatement. But they're seriously superhumans gifts that they have the sacrifices that they make and all of their dedication their sport make them inspirational. It's so inspiring to see someone who looks like you accomplishing things beyond your wildest dreams and so i think what we see is that it speaks to amir's point justice point what we're all making which is inspiration for whom on what terms and can you actually build something constructively out of that inspiration in certain types of communities who needs to be leading the way in terms of creating the narrative one of the things that's frustrating beyond just basic resources has also been as a family member of someone with a disability the fundamental misunderstanding of the needs beyond infrastructure and that includes caregivers and that that was highlighted by becca myers a para swimmer pulling out of the paralympics when she could not Bring her mother to accompany her and for a lot of people that don't understand anything.

Can you imagine being blind and deaf and not being allowed to have any with you in in tokyo like she's expected to get around into all these things without any assistance. Like i would want somebody.

Us olympic committee is denied reasonable and essential accommodation for her and telling her that she doesn't need a personal care assistant because there will be a single personal care existence on staff that is available to assist her and thirty three other paralympic swimmers. Nine of whom are also visually impaired. So one personal care assistant for thirty three parallel olympic swimmers insane. That doesn't make any sense at all. Yeah and then. In further misogyny we talk about nursing mothers. at first they weren't going to allow Nursing mothers to bring their babies at all but then they decided last week that they will permit athletes who are nursing mothers to bring their infants with them to the next month's months summer games and this was across the board this was for all nursing mothers on all teams right.

They say the games are sports. Not politics something separate and apart from the realities of life but the black athlete says he is part of a revolution in america. A revolution designed to produce dignity for the black man and that he is a human being before he is an athlete. He says his life in america's filled with injustice that he wants equality everywhere not just within the arena. He says that he will not be used once every four years on behalf of a group. That ignores what happens to them every day of all the years. He says he earns participation wins faily and that he will use his prominence earned with inle arena to better his plight outside of it.

The crowd roaring a woman lauded for her physical achievements but now for her that future was gone. Dropped from the sky for no reason at all. Just bad luck. Betty cannot get out of bed and does not want to either but her brother-in-law with whom she has always been close will not let her story and like this and so every morning he would wake her up and just go and take her for a walk and initially was just a couple of steps outside. Maybe go down the street. Eventually he would make a run just a few steps in time. Those few steps turned out to be a short run around the block but the injuries were substantial. And betty couldn't get into the crouch necessary for the beginning of the hundred meters then. A light bulb went off. You know what race you don't need to crouch for a relay once. She had a moment of realization. Had a huge impact on her state. Mind it also had a huge impact on how she saw the sport in how she saw her team-mates as well before she hadn't really given an awful lot of thought about it. They were just girls but now these were women who made huge sacrifices to get where they were and she would have to be one of them and now a familiar twist for a story about a female athlete in one thousand nine hundred thirty six. The us olympic committee funded expenses for the men's track and field team. But not for the women. Betty would have to raise her own money and like most during the great depression. Her family was struggling financially. Her medical bills had been costly and her dad had lost his job to foot the bill for germany. Betty sold almost all her possessions with hitler in attendance.

We'll because the decision to let people bring their child and the child's of their caretaker. Put them still at an offsite location. Meaning that if you want to go nurse your child multiple times a day. You have to leave the bubble area of your team. You've put your health at risk and not south to go to a different location to nurture child logistically. This remains a nightmare so just letting people come does not logistically solve the problem.

Is that this report. What it what. It unveils here is not an anomaly. It really is the norm out of every two hundred. Thirty rapes reported to the police. Only about six results in criminal charges only about five resulting conviction and jail time and our conviction rates for non rape sexual assaults are even worse and what we see in his. Fbi report is just some of why we happens. Dynamics and why survivors don't feel safe to speak up. One of the things that the report said was that larry nassar continued working with young women and girls for a year after authorities were aware of the allegations against him and that more than seventy athletes. In that time were abused. How does that news hit you. It's horrifying it's evil. It's disgusting and it actually downplays the reality of what took place. It was actually closer to eighteen months before i came forward. What we need to be asking now is what we're not seeing. Why do you think through such an apparent lack of urgency at the fbi again. This is not unique. This is a story every survivor faces. We have a a situation in this country. Where law enforcement is often very poorly trained to even understand evidence and trauma what we have to realize is that it took six years and hundreds of victims and intense public pressure to be able to shine a light on the failure of law enforcement every single. Fbi officer who did not bother to launch a proper investigation who did not accurately report who colluded with usa. Gee all of those bad actors have moved on and there are no consequences while the survivors are left to pick up the pieces if we have seen this much in one case in one report after six years of pushing for answers. What's happening everywhere else that we're not seeing two survivors. Don't have that kind of help and support. And you're referring there to the special agent in charge of the indianapolis field office is j. abbott. The inspector general's report said that he made false statements to investigators and that he was seeking a job with the us olympic committee. During all of this so what does accountability at the fbi for these mistakes. Look like for you. What do you want it. Looks like punitive action. It looks like a recognition of the credible failure in a system that goes above and beyond the statement. That's been released that essentially as bad things happen. We don't want this to happen. This this report lays bare the failures and that essentially says but those failures don't matter enough to have this hard conversations to put real consequences in place. Rachel you mentioned those little girls the victims. Of course you're as well. And i wonder if the acknowledgement that there were serious errors in this investigation will help you and those other girls. Somehow he'll or does it. Just open up the wound even further. I am grateful for the recognition that we did get. I'm grateful for the doj's investigation if we're going to change what's happening in our culture of rape and abuse. That goes straight to the top of law enforcement. We have to start having serious discussions about how we have accountability and consequences for bad actors in law enforcement because they have all the power authority and none of the accountability. Rachel denhellender is a former gymnast and a whistle blower. That helped bring these sexual abuse by larry nassar to light. Rachel thank you so much. Thank you some extra.

"R. y. I quickly before we go here. Turtle boy we mentioned this earlier. I want to apologize. i early. This week i apologize to the. Us women's soccer team. Which i don't like them. I don't root for them. I can't stand meghan rappeneau. Even though i think it's a great idea for victoria's secret dump all those smoking hot models and hire her is the new Spokes woman. I think it's gonna work. It's gonna end I thought i accused him of turning their back on the anthem. And i did my research and it appears they didn't do that. It appears have done it before the field for the knelt for the anthem. This time they showed the video. I saw the video of all of them. Going up to two pete depre- that ninety eight year old vet who play the anthem. I'm monica. he was great. I pierce they. They they like him. It appears they just want some of them. Were looking at the big screen and some of them will look at the actual flag. It appears they didn't turn their back on him. I believe that call was fake news. Yes i believe. Because i believe those people are you know. They're super woke. Growing up of you to admit your biases jerry. I apologize to them earlier this week. I'm gonna apologize to jessica springsteen today you know why because i said i'm gonna root against her springsteen's daughter who's in the show jumping competition in tokyo in the she's an olympic athlete. She's got a show horse and they jump over things and smoke pot. I guess that would be judged judges. Pick the winner on that. Ch- that sport i guess under that work. I think i've ever seen coach something and consider this. If you make a donation to the us olympic committee you might be the one paying for jessica springsteen's horse to be transferred to be ported to tokyo her. Her horse goes withered as always fly first class boat or do they ship can. Can you put a horse and cargo. I don't know work. Its way the plane down now if it goes in a boat isn't uncomfortable as in the horse when they get there like stiff and uncomfortable. I don't know. But just i assume jessica springsteen flies on dad's private jet but i don't know about the dawn. The horse's name is don juan something long name. But don juan is going to be there with jessica springsteen in the show jumping competition and i said i'm going to root against her but i started so feel bad. Why she's obviously a rich elitist. I don't know if she's as big a left wing nut as her father. Maybe she has. Maybe not we'll see if she'd stands for the anthem but everybody in the show jumping. She's probably going to go against princes. Sultans of brunei is kids. I mean it's all going to be rich elitist people who do show jumping for life. I mean she not the only ones spoiled brat who's going to tokyo to compete in a horse equestrian right so now before she might be a good she might be a nice person. I mean she might be a radical eker dad but at least he's representing the country. She's fuzzy no has not turned her back on the anthem gwen berry. She hasn't put a t-shirt overhead when they play the anthem. We'll find out what it's good to have. Because i can't even think of too reasons to watch a you. You guys going to watch the olympics. I love the olympics. I love i love track and field. Them i mean i was a track coach. The shattuck shattuck clan going to sit down around the tv. Like the fun ones like gymnastics and swimming. I was a swimmer. So that's i love swimming raises. I mean that's always exciting. And i don't know but not all the build up the drama you know what if i starts is not really exciting but a weekend when you start building up the drama like simone. Biles going for whatever million metals. Then you start checking or there's no michael phelps but if some swimmers gonna go win like seven medals then you get into it more as it builds and i don't even know when basketball starts but i'll be rooting for kevin love. Because he's the only white guy the team right. Yes there were i mean. I don't even watch the basketball during the olympics. I like the track. I mean I like to swimming in the girls gymnastics. Those are the three sports you think of when you think of summer olympics. And because you don't know who the villains are you don't know like okay so we know who the top americans are. But there's always some villain like a russian gymnast or romanian gymnasts that like we have to beat her. And that's where you always remember about the who's gonna be who's jamaica. Got in the hundred. Meter dash is here. I don't know. But i bet you they got someone. I'm rooting for that The hammer thrower who almost set like a world record. What was the name. Dan big girl. Happy girl good. American very happy to be there loving this opportunity and i'm rooting against the third place. Finisher wind berry i will. I'll enjoy it when she finishes like seven because she will. She's not that good. The price is a stud who will probably win the gold. She threw it over eighty meters. The men only four eighty six. So i mean she your big into the haganah. Obviously i just read about it. She's like amazing. And i mean she's a biological girl far as i know she's not even like who's the top woman's javelin-thrower thrower jerry I'll look that up for you. Don't know in so you could argue. That gwen berry is kind of the best thing that ever happened. I know she she has. I mean i'm saying these people are the reasons you watch. Gwen berry is brought some eyeballs to the two tv. And so has jessica springsteen i mean people have say you know i'll i don't even know what was it on tv. I mean there's on like eight different channels right. Yeah they'll be all the nbc different kinds of channels. But here's go ahead to the fans turn away. There's no fans in empty stadium for the two hundred meter of the four hundred meter. It's not gonna feel right man. It's not gonna have any energy it's gonna be. It's gonna be dead. I thought i. I can't believe japan of all countries could do that. Delegate count on them. This isn't england or france. This is a country that values money. And you know is smart and gets it. I'm really surprised that they're falling for this nonsense. They don't they don't get vaccinated the only fifteen percent of the country's vaccinated. Why because i don't know they don't have a lot of old fat people that really worried about kobe. Maybe they're all young. And that. In fact i don't know i think they were one of the country's early on we were told like they did it right stupid americans..

"Night off before the olympic committee barbican they said in this would clear up everything with this whole situation with this young lady. They said it's not fair to the other athletes. It's not fair to the of athletes who prepare and don't smoke the to reinstate her back into these games it's not fair for the others who follow the rule. And that's what this is all about. It's not about her. It's about the others who who who understand the consequences of their actions. I'm not saying none of us. Perfect and i'm not being judgy. Hey it's all about the other athletes who didn't smoke the we because there's this big campaign now online to reinstate her but what about the other athletes that data that followed the guidelines in the policies of trying to make the team You'd be back next year for the world championships. You won't miss the olympics. And i'm for sure your learned from this but i have to go with the olympic. This board the feno all these olympic folks. Us olympic committee. I have to go with them. They are absolutely right. It is not fair to the other athletes who follow the rules. That's it to protest the olympics. One person no which i think is fair because you know how many other african american athletes will be there who need our support as well. She chose to do the marijuana she. She said it she knew what she was doing. She knew what was wrong and she frankly did not care so she after rules. Well no don't penalize all the fbi work they ass off. The she knows what she did was wrong. Okay chow use your mom. Asking excuse was smoking weed before she passed. And so that's why the and not only that like even if your mother was a we'd advocate or not. I'm for sure your mother wouldn't want you may rest in peace for sure. Your mother wants you to jeopardize his. That's exactly and if you're new rules to and we say that respectively. I don't think that would want wants you to smoke. We upon her death to disqualify you for going to the olympics. I'm just. I'm not in my life on it but i'm for sure your mother wouldn't cosign. How close how my wife. Because from what i read. She was raised by her grandmother. So i wanted to. How close because she said. I found that my biological mother died. She didn't even make. It seem like he was close on when she was talking about the old as so now so now. The comment is from from the management on that. We ain't got nothing to say of course stop talking because you making yourself look crazy right now. Okay stop it you disqualify yourself because you smoke marijuana which is a drug as far as this committee sees fit. And that's it onus responsibility and move on with your life. Nobody's judging anyone. Lord knows you know. I know position a job. But i'm just saying you know the rules. And it's not fair to the other athletes and to go out there to tokyo and protests that she's not on. This is so disrespectful to the other athletes and barbara just said the even the african american athletes. It is so disrespectful to them. That put the hardworking without smoking. The weed yeah okay just to piggyback on. That might be in. A runner named gaffe. Gabby thomas all. She just tweeted. She said it really hurts to see so many black people choosing not to watch the olympics this year. I'm there are so many black in finnish so many black athletes That put years of hardworking. For this moment myself included. We want you to support. That was one of the athletes who's gonna be at the olympics So many black was they was going to boycott the olympics because chakari social cari then responds and she pretty much her narcissist say she say a lot of people of these athletes got so much to say. But you can't beat me in a race like girls sit back. I was ready. I was ready to get out of here. And i'm still getting out of here. Black people my brown people. I plead to you too. I seriously plead for you. Not to dumbness down. You are smarter than this black folks and brown folks. You have to be if you gonna sit there and protest the olympics because a runner. That's african american violated the terms and conditions of running. There is something deeply sad about this do we do. We have any responsibility or accountability for any of our actions in the world that we live in today that this other athlete. Is i really. Well we can. You're gonna protest this because this woman has smoked weed and she has the nerve enough to respond back in on literally on a third grade level. Saying that no one could beat her in running the girls. She never even mentioned sakaris names. She never even acknowledged the situation saying that. You know we watch our support. Is hundreds of us support. So why would you bend over one person who made the decision herself to smoke we. We didn't do what she herself. Net situation so why not banning it watch this this social this and i keep saying thirty percent of this is not even real people. Think about this black people. Think about this brown people think about this don't discard. The athletes played by the rules. These world class athletes that sacrifice everything in their lives in their parents and grandparents and and institutions in sponsorship for these runners. And you just to throw all that away because one athlete wanted to smoke weed. it's terrible. it's disrespectful black. People brown people come on. Follow your boy harvey. I'm watching the olympics. I'm watching these beautiful black women and black men and african american all colors perform not gonna watch the olympics because one of the runners decided to smoke weed and get disqualified.

"Well i mean. I think so. The actual nope pepsi actual sponsor of the us olympic committee. The built with chocolate milk campaign Is a campaign. They sponsor a lot of athletes in sports. Not necessarily libyan's But i do think that because They're inundation at the end of traffic lonzo running races and ex-terra that they have infiltrated themselves into i think athletes believing that. Yeah if they can add some chocolate milk in there really going to recover you get some so i i think that is just kind of in the consciousness you know but it's it's not. It's not something big a pc but sports so so it it eighty early eighties when your dad was doing research. I mean not every every father brings their work call with them. What are your first memories of. Hey wait. what are you researching. What are we learning like. Did mom start cooking differently or what. What are those first memories of of that change for your family. And how did you feel about it. Such of great question talk. My dad's always been fascinated interested with with diet and nutrition. And i can remember him studying the eskimos back in. What the eskimos. Eight back in the nineteen seventy seven. I think we were on the trip. He was reading this book. And then i remember him reading mcdougal's medicine i think it was nineteen eighty and At and he would he was marking it up in pencil and one day i just started looking through to see what his nose different mark city made and of the comments and at some point he said finally I can eat these types of foods. My father wrote that in the margin but he was fascinated with mcdougal's work and And i think that book is really what inspired him to go to go on this journey. And then he he you know he. He was a general surgeon. His specialty was the thyroid the parents rates and the breasts. He did a lot of breast cancer surgery. And yeah there was a there was probably a three or four year period. There were he did more parathyroid procedures than any surgeon in the world And but he decided that in his lifetime it'd be hard to show that you could prevent reverse breast cancer. But he did some research and he found out that they had done some stuff with green monkeys where they were able to actually show the reversal of the atherosclerotic plaques. And so that's what inspired him to reach out to the head of the cardiology department. Who was a friend of his and say listen. I wanna do this research. So could you send me the worst possible patients that you have that have been turned out for another bypass procedure or standard. Angioplasty they really have what's called end stage heart disease. They've been given less than about a year to live and so over the course of about a year and a half they sent him twenty two patients..
