politics and sports

Whether to boycott the Olympic Games in Beijing or not…

…well – I’m not an athlete, so it’s not a question whether I’d go or not, but…

 
When asked whether Sweden ought to boycott the Olympic Games or not, the answer from the Swedish Olympic Committee has been: sport isn’t politics → we’ll participate.
(No-where on their homepage do they state this point of view. It’s found in other (Swedish) medias, though.)

…and then the Polish prime minister states that he’ll not be present at the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games – because sport isn’t politics.

…and the Swedish politicians comment on that move was: it’s ridiculous – sport has nothing to do with politics, of course Swedish politicians can participate by being present (as being Swedish politicians) at the opening ceremonies.

Eh?

Consequence, anyone?

 
( … or just what have I misunderstood?)
