Two reasons .... (1) I'll be 'wetting' myself in the pool at the Westin Denarau along with my Vvet mate from Perth, putting the world to right and doing our level best to boost the share price of Fiji Bitter (while our better halves compete for Gold Medals to see who can decimate our creditcards best) and (2) the 'Games' leave me cold.
The final straw for me was the decision by the International Olympic Committee to bow to political pressure and disregard the call by the World Anti Doping Agency for Russia to be banned from the Games following the publication of the McLaren Investigation which exposed beyond reasonable doubt (the criminal standard) a state run doping programme in Russia that undermines everything that Olympic sport is supposed to represent.
It is stands right now every medal won by a Russian competitor will be tainted.
The Games are tainted. The whole Olympic ideal has been prostituted in favour of political expediency and greed which starts with a flawed bidding process and ends with the host country having to shoulder the cost of white elephant stadia replete with cost over-runs and back-handers to every man and his dog.
My solution ... the world community to build a permanent Olympic facility in Greece (the birthplace of the Olympics) and hold the games there. Enforce the doping protocol with a vengeance. Any athlete found guilty of doping should be banned permanently from the Olympics. Their team (i.e the discipline) to be banned from competing at the following Games. No ifs, buts or maybes. Do that and I'm 'interested'. Continue as is and more Fiji Bitter beckons.
