Threat of Paris 2024 boycott
Published on January 7th, 2023
The renewed aspiration of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for maintaining “universality” with ideological integration at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games – embracing drug-free athletes from Russia and Belarus uninvolved in Ukraine atrocities – could be spectacularly counter-productive.
Evidence is accumulating that IOC-imagined ethics will become not peaceful leadership but fatal cancer of Paris’s long-awaited third Games next year.
Aware that not only much of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) – Ukraine themselves anxious candidates – but indeed world equilibrium is under threat from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s demonic empire lust, Western nations are known to be considering a boycott of Paris 2024 rather than competing against an alien state.
Fourteen effective neighbors of Ukraine were among the top 45 medal-winning nations at Tokyo 2020, winning a third of 900 medals.
“The plan to devise acceptable conditions for inclusion of Russian athletes is far too early, Ukraine’s allies indeed all of Europe, is wholly justified in their concern,” affirmed Gerhard Heiberg, veteran retired Norwegian IOC member and industrialist, who masterminded Lillehammer’s Winter Games of 1994. – Full report
