The sponsors have a lot of clout at the Olympics. And China is the world's biggest untapped market. They were never going to pass up that platform. Too much money to be made.[/QUOTE]
money to be made by whom????
if you enter the olympics as a money making venture you're a fool....except for Aussie in '00 and the games which took place on the north American continent (except Montreal in '76) most of the games have suffered collassal loses.....
there won't be a seat empty in this summer's games- the chicom's will ensure this by bussing citizens in and making them sit in the seats...that doesn't mean the games are a financial success....
