Beijing wins the Olympics
It has sort of become the concensus that DB racing will not become
part of the Olympics until China wins due to the large number of athletes. For China, I think it would actually
be a plus. They are cost insensitive and there would be prestige in holding the biggest Olympics ever. The IOC
is trying to limit the number of athletes because it is getting too expensive.
A friend has been in contact with the Chinese DB association. They are upset that the China Olympic Committee
is leaning toward a martial art as the demonstration sport.
