i doubt it will sway them much but a) there is some value to public shaming, especially i think with asian cultures and b) if i were an athlete i'd want to make it clear that i didnt' endorse this stuff by anti-endorsing it so my name felt clear.

True. If I were an athlete, I wouldn't go in the first place.

it's gotta be tough. this is what you love, your passion and your career/livelihood, and you have a limit to how many you can do before you get old - this may be your only shot or 1/2 or something, it's your chance to make a name, make money, win and get glory...i don't envy the decision, i'd probably go and speak out like the guys in the article

See, I think it's a piss-easy decision. But you couldn't pay me to go to Beijing. It sounds like an utterly horrid place.

The pollution and crowds would make me fear for my life. Quite literally, given my asthma.

Definitely having an early one tonight... I think I've got some sort of ear infection or something (sorry if that's TMI) ... it hurts.

Ooh fuuun, Ali. Hope it goes away soon.

I should have an early night but I'm procrastinating so much right now and badly need to do work, so I think I'll be up late.
