I love watching the Olympic Games. Every country that hosted the Games have always been the best…the joys and jubilance. The athletes and sportspersons are a great inspiration…their persistence, diligence and fortitude in perfecting their skills! Oh what joy to watch the display of their talents!

However, I felt sick viewing the footages of protests on the Olympic Torch relay. This is sheer folly and downright disrespecting the sportsmanship and spirit of the Olympic Games.

I agree these words expressed by…

Swedish IOC member Gunilla Lindberg said the protests were “damaging the Olympic movement”…

…”Using the torch this way is almost a crime. This is the property of the IOC, it is not a Chinese torch.”


Personally, what has the championing for human rights got to do with the Olympic Torch relay? By boycotting the Olympic Games, will this bring peace or free Tibet? I wonder…how naive indeed!

What do the protestors want? What do they want to achieve? Is this human right?

They’ve just displayed a violating of human rights themselves by their sickening behavior!

How do they propose to ‘free Tibet’ when they are so angry, violent and chaotic at the different venues of the countries the Olympic Torch graced?

The Torch represents hope, unity and peace. 

I believe this is what the protestors want but…their very presence and actions contradict that the Torch stood for.

Have the protestors missed the mark by being so aggressive and angry? Have they not mocked themselves?
