I think it’s absolutely embarrassing that there’s countries, there’s people, that are intolerant, that are ignorant. There are politics in sports and athletics, and they’re always intertwined. Even though people try to keep them separate, or try to act like they’re separate, I think asking athletes to go somewhere and compete and be a representative of a philosophy and all that different crap that kind of goes along with it, and then tell them they can’t express their views or they can’t say what they believe, I think is pretty hypocritical and unfair. But, you know the fact is, crappy situations like that have been happening for a long time.
