The US Olympic Committee supports the participation of Russians in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, but again without a flag and an anthem

A rather controversial statement was made by the head of the USOPC, Suzanne Lyons. So, according to her, the US Olympic Committee believes that Russian athletes should take part in the 2024 games, which will be held in Paris, writes the Wall Street Journal.


It would seem that Lyons came up with an absolutely worthy and timely initiative. Regardless of the geopolitical situation, athletes representing even a country “objectionable” to the West should not be “outcasts” who are not allowed to compete. However, in the speech of the head of the USOPC, which is given by the American edition, there is one significant “but”.

The functionary believes that our athletes should return to competitions, but at the same time she is categorically against the Russians performing under their own flag and anthem, since the Russian Federation is under Western sanctions.

It is worth noting that every "Olympian", like other top-level athletes, dream of representing at competitions and defending the honor of their country. In turn, the ban on the Russian flag is a real humiliation for our athletes.

In fact, the United States continues to “play democracy”, allegedly defending the rights of “everyone and everything”, but at the same time putting forward conditions that are absolutely unacceptable to the other side. In this case, Lyons' initiative is reminiscent of US President Joe Biden's "willingness" to start negotiations with Vladimir Putin after the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine - that is, on the basis of initially unacceptable conditions.

    It's time to put an end! enough already to suffer for the Olympians, who "trained, trained, and now why should they skip the competition?" Yes, it means skip. The country is at war, sanctions are all around, and these athletes only think about their personal careers. They do not give a flag, and there is nothing to go. This sports lobby is no better than the same artists and actresses from the "Ilitka" who are in favor of not quarreling with the West and participating in all their competitions. not even though there is a flag and an anthem and a coat of arms, it means not to participate. Boycott. whoever doesn’t like it, let them give up their citizenship and perform under other flags. But it will already be defectors and not the Russians. let them build their little personal world and their karjeks somewhere else. And during the period of trials, one must be with the people. the people are in the trenches and the athletes are all measured by texture. 6if you are such an athlete, go fight or volunteer!. Also me celestials ...

          It is necessary to propose that the United States be deprived of performing under its own anthem and flag. After all, such an absurd still needs to be looked for.

              And to spend on the same days with what the United States has turned the Olympics into. So that no one, including our "undecided", including, would be tempted to eat a fish here and participate there.
              By the way, and not like those of our Games, one-time, but on a regular basis and not only here. I think the Chinese, for example, will not refuse.
              And then we'll see if their "LGBT games" or our Games, which are held on those "old-fashioned" principles, will seem more attractive to people in the world.

              I, at one time, did not go further than the championship of the Union and the countries of the Warsaw Pact. If there had been an Olympic level at that time and there would have been such a situation as it is now, I would not even choose where to go.

      Always, from the very beginning, I was against our athletes competing, no matter what competitions, under foreign flags, even under neutral ones. Only under the flag of their Motherland, their State. I think otherwise is a humiliation for an athlete, and I always wondered how the athletes agreed to this. Do they have no pride?

          Let them also perform under the Olympic flag and the Olympic anthem. After all, everyone is equal .. "and flags, etc., are of last interest to them."
          Let all athletes perform without flags and anthems. Then it will be possible to believe that "participation and victory are important to them, and flags, etc., are of last interest to them."
          In the meantime, there is a clear discrimination of athletes on a national basis.

            Something mixed up in a bunch of horses people, and here athletes from other countries, talking about our athletes and surprise that they are ready to enter without a national flag.
            As for athletes from other countries, there are many cases when they easily changed their citizenship and played for other teams, including the Russian one. A professional athlete of the top Olympic level is a very “specific” person, well, imagine for yourself from the age of 5-6 for twenty years, relatively speaking, he skated or skied, or jumped long, six sometimes seven days a week to the detriment of other development.

      So the “Russians” in Russian big (Olympics, World and European Championships) sports have been in the majority for a long time. They perform, train, and many of them live outside of Russia and for them, as, for example, the same NHLers, tennis players, swimmers, etc. the interests of Russia are not a priority, but the main earnings are from advertising and, again, not Russian ...

          There is no war, in general, such words are punished with fines, there is a SVO, Russia supplies oil and gas, grain, etc., and is looking for ways to circumvent sanctions. And if the state itself cannot decide on a position, then what are the athletes to blame for, tomorrow Putin will sign Minsk/Khasovyurt4, and for the athletes the Olympiad will already be held.

    Enough of this shame. Athletes at the Olympics represent their country. Why does the state spend huge amounts of money on training professional athletes? it is simply impossible to succeed at competitions at the level of the Olympiad without being a "pro". And they spend this money so that we, couch fans, can be proud of our country and our athletes. Well, those athletes who are only interested in the results (and the corresponding "grandmothers") and who do not care about their flag and anthem, let them compete in commercial competitions, which are now full.
    ps It is simply impossible to achieve record results in competitions now without "chemistry". the power of an athlete, allocated to achieve such a result, exceeds the capabilities of the human body. But "not caught, not a thief"

    Let WADA compete with them - it will be an honor.

    There is no way to represent Russia under the national flag, so you need to find yourself another occupation.

        Maybe to the machine.
        You can go to schools, there are not enough teachers everywhere.
        However, the state may offer athletes to compensate for the money invested in them. And those who wish can go to the Olympics under the white flag at their own expense.

    There is one more nuance. Each team must have up to 10% LGBT representatives.
    Everything seems to be moving towards the creation of new Olympic Games without pederasts, etc.

    In my opinion, it would be worth reviving traditions, because everything new is already once forgotten old!
    The Goodwill Games were created on the initiative of Ted Turner as an alternative to the Olympic Games after the US and other Western countries boycotted the Moscow Olympics in 1980 due to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the US retaliatory boycott of the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984 by the US.

    The idea came to Ted Turner in 1984 during his visit to Moscow. Ted Turner was disappointed with the boycott, seeing it as a negative outcome for both sides in the conflict. The mogul also thought it was a good time to create high-level alternative competitions that could steal some of the success from the Olympics. The organization of the competition cost him more than $ 11 million.

    The first Games were held in Moscow (USSR) in July 1986. More than 3000 athletes from 79 countries took part in them, who competed for 182 gold medals in 18 sports. During the competition, six world records were broken, several continental and national (Sergei Bubka in pole vault, Jackie Joyner-Kersee in the heptathlon, as well as records for men and women in cycling).

    It is clear that these were perestroika approaches, we no longer need American organizers ...
    And you can even come up with a different name! But there are always alternatives, the main thing is to have a positive agenda.

    It's not the Olympics anymore. Such competitions should exist outside the politics of the world. Of course, years of training can go to waste if you refuse to participate. Better to refuse. The absence of Russia will be an indicator. Together with the BRICS, it would be necessary to start doing an analogue of sports.

    The Russian Federation and Russia are already considered non-existent. And we agree with this. The unrequited humiliation of the flag and dignity of the state will eventually lead to the fact that this state will ingloriously disappear. And the people with him.
    You don't have to go. It is necessary to arrange an alternative sports contest for members of the national team and the second team. No transgender people. Let not our Olympians participate. But we will draw organizational conclusions.

    Dal bych o tom hlasovat samotné sportovce, kteří by se zúčastnili Olympiády, jestli jsou ochotni reprezentovat Rusko bez dresu Ruska, bez vlajky Ruska a bez hymny Ruska, což je velmi urážlivé.

    They already humiliated us with these Olympiads and the entire leadership only bleated and made excuses. Now they are doing this on purpose so that everyone in the world understands who we are. No Stalin means the country is not a country. they will say you can go to the Olympics with a colorful LGBT flag

      And what is the point for us to be in the WHO, the WTO and so on? Personally, we don’t have any, to say the least, but our wise leaders find something beneficial for themselves there. We apparently do not understand this high wisdom, but if with a simple mind it all looks like very bad things.

    It's time for the state to have its say. In parallel with this event, which is becoming an LGBT event, we will hold our own competitions. Let our people compete honestly with those who did not make it to the Olympic teams, without any Norwegian, American and other "asthmatics". And that the prize fund would be appropriate.

    In my opinion, all athletes participating in the Olympic Games should be on an equal footing! Whether it's an anthem, a flag, paraphernalia, admission of athletes and more. If someone is not allowed or is allowed under special conditions (without a flag, without an anthem, or on the other hand a transgender because he feels like a girl, etc.) it is better not to allow at all and not participate!
    The OIs must be held on a common basis for all countries wishing to participate. Doping is a separate story. Everyone who is found to have it should be punished for it, and not the entire participating country! Asthmatics with certificates authorizing the use of illegal drugs go through the woods! Or they do not take these drugs and participate like everyone else!

      Here, after all, it is necessary to separate in everything and build our own civilization. With its own meaning of life different from serving the golden calf, with its own economy not chained to the colonial budget rule, well, with its own Olympics. And leave blackjack and women of low social responsibility to our then former "partners". But it’s like going in the opposite direction from the one where they rowed for 30 years, as if not in themselves, they rowed into a bright bourgeois tomorrow, but it turned out that what our government took for all these decades for an orgasm turned out to be asthma ... trouble and nothing more ...

    Thanks for the comment.
    I am not suggesting doing an American-centric project at all. He only showed that there were already alternatives, and at the Olympic Games the light did not come together like a wedge, even when everyone boycotted each other. And now we need a different name, ours ...

    But here is the idea that there is a sense in creating a positive agenda. And many countries will support the initiative, the athletes will come. The Soviet Union formed the space of meanings, created centers of attraction for other countries - it's time for modern Russia to return to this path.
