China: All Good


China: All Good

Why don’t
we believe that? Could it be that the Olympics are being hosted by a
corrupt, repressive, deceitful government? Maybe a host of well chronicled
pollution issues? How about a bunch of spin meisters whose jobs are
to put lipstick on this pig and call it pretty? From SCMP.com:

International sailing chiefs yesterday rejected claims Olympic sailors
in Qingdao were risking their health because of the algae bloom and
polluted sea.

The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) yesterday broke its silence
in response to the latest salvo of negative reports from national team
coaches which has split the international sailing community training
on the Shandong coast.

"ISAF takes the health and well-being of all athletes very seriously
indeed," ISAF technical delegate Jerome Pels said.
