Sour Grapes!

When American coaches and Olympic officials whine about Chinese children starting training young in state facilities, they are an embarrassment.  We send professional athletes to basketball, we have athletes who come from wealthy families, we have the advantage of food and supplements and a healthy lifestyle, and lots and lots of facilities.  How many Chinese rural schools do you think have a track?  How many Chinese neighborhoods or schools do you think have a pool?  Each win is an individual achievement, it’s still individual accomplishment, no matter who wins the gold.  And that’s what the Olympics are all about.  They are the ultimate in self-reliance, self-worth, and, yes, free enterprise. Stop whining, it’s un-American.
