No - would totally disrupt the rowing, shooting and equestrian seasons.

But just think how much more modern slavery, worker deaths and human rights abuses could be committed in the build up!

That's the main issue for me. Countries that rely on slave labour shouldn't even be considered for prestige events like the Olympics or World Cup.

Yeah I wasn't shocked by them getting the world cup given the state Fifa was/is in but the Olympics should be nowhere near them. Quick read speculates Queensland, joint North/South Korea and India as other bids.

I assume any pro-BLM athletes that are anti-slavery will avoid these olympics?

in a similar vein I wonder if any will refuse to compete at the football World Cup in Qatar?
