Boundary-Less World

1 post in this topic

The gold medal count of London Olympics 2012 is between United States of America and People's Republic of China.

While it is said that sports is political-free, and moderate exercise will do good for our health ---- Would excessive competition and pushing the athletes' physique to the limit do any good?

It is about the pride of a country and its people. As such, it is nationalism. And nationalism will provoke hatred among nations. Frankly, I don't think it is good for both the athletes' and the audience in large.

I am from a small country of south east of Asia, and my country has never won any gold medals. Longing for the first ever gold medal in history, the Badminton final yesterday put me to think twice. It must either upset the player from my country or the opponent's. I remember that no race is superior than another.

I admit that I might be narrow-minded, and being oppressed mentally and emotionally :crazy: . Please correct me if I am wrong. Thank you!
