It’s just silly that Olympic athletes are banned from blogging while in Athens.
The editor of Duke University’s alumni publication says: “This is unfathomable to me. I don’t understand what the International Olympic Committee might be concerned about. It’s a way to engage a wide audience with reporting from the field and therefore generate excitement and interest in the games. This is a means to personalize the Olympics, to excite a constituency with the thrill that comes with the knowledge that a couple of their own are participants in the competition.”
He’s absolutely right.
I’m glad he didn’t stop.
