Boycott of Beijing Olympics by US Doomed to Failure, As Boycott of Sochi Games, Ambassador Says
“The US boycott of the Sochi Winter Olympics failed, and this political manoeuvre of refusing to send officials to the Beijing Winter Olympics is doomed to failure. All those who oppose the true spirit of democracy and unity of all mankind will eventually reap the bitter fruit", Zhang said.
"The Winter Olympic Games in Beijing are a significant event for athletes and sports fans around the world and not a stage for the show of politicians of separate countries. We are ready, together with the wider international community, including Russia, to resolutely resist the politicisation of sports", the Chinese ambassador said.
