Boycotting the 2022 Beijing Olympics?
First published: Saturday June 25th, 2022
According to many sources, the USA, UK, Canada, India, Australia, Lithuania, Kosovo, Belgium, Denmark, and Estonia "boycotted" the games. Athletes would compete (at least for the US), but no officials or diplomats would attend. This was to protest the Uyghurs' treatment. Maybe one of the best ideas ever? Maybe they should have pulled a 1984 Soviet Union play and completely abandoned the Games? I don't know. It was interesting, since it was rare for the USA to boycott the olympics, and a first for the UK and Canada, and for others.
