Duncan Riley Juan Antonio Samaranch, long time Olympic chief and friend of fascist Spain may have stepped down but his politics have not been forgotten. After earlier reports here at the Blog Herald that Blogs may be banned from the Olympics, confirmation from Wired that this is true. “The Olympic guidelines threaten to yank credentials from athletes who are in violation as well as to impose other sanctions or take legal action for any monetary damages.” the article states. Wouldn’t it be a disgraceful day for the world when an Olympic athlete is banned for blogging. Fascism is alive and well in the Olympic movement.
