                China lobs one more Olympic blast

       BEIJING -- China's top Olympic official has blasted the
Atlanta Olympics for biased judging, money grabbing organizers and
politically prejudiced commentators.

       Wei Jizhong, secretary general of the Chinese Olympic
Committee, said in an interview that some people were jealous of China's
sporting achievements.

        He said China, despite "absurb allegations" that its
athletes used performance-enhancing ***, had stood up like a giant
and those who tried to obstruct its sporting drive would end up
crushed.

        "There are people in the world who are prejudiced
against China and jealous of its achievements, who adopt a dual criteria
on the question of doping," he said.

       "Like the United States, Germany and many other
countries, (China) did not have a single positive case in doping tests,
thus
repudiating the absurd allegation that Chinese athletes have used
forbidden
***."

       Wei's remarks, described as "a talk to the whole world,"
were made in an interview with China Sports magazine.

       "The outcome of the Atlanta Olympics proves it is risky
to assign the Olympics to a few businessmen who, relying on their
experience in trade, regard its organisation as a mere commercial
activity,"
said Wei.

       He said Atlanta had shown that a successful Olympics
required the support of the state and sports organisations and the
International Olympic Committee had failed to police the organisers
and ensure they kept their "fine promises" made ahead of the Games.

      He complemented the Chinese team for their spirit,
discipline and composure despite biased judging that adversely affected
the results of some competitors.

     "As a socialist power, China has stood up like a giant
-- brave, industrious and fearless of attacks and slanders," he said.

     "Anyone who tries to stop its thriving cause of sport
will end up -- to use a Chinese proverb -- "like a mantis trying to
obstruct a running chariot'."

        The allegations could arguably be called absurd if they were
        regarding use of *** DURING (or just prior to) the Olympics,
        because no Chinese violations were found during the Olympics.
        But allegations that Chinese athletes HAVE USED (in the past)
        *** are more than just allegations.  They are proven facts
        that have been ennumerated in these newsgroups ad nauseum.

        History cannot be rewritten on this point.

        I think it is great that China came up clean in the Olympics --
        especially the female swimmers.  It is a tremendous basis for
        rebuilding worldwide trust in the program, and the probationary
        period of worldwide doubt may very well have ended in Atlanta.

A mantis souped-up with growth hormones and steroids like a Chinese
athlete might have a good chance at that!  ;-)

More American athletes were caught using performance enhencing ***
then the rest of the world combined, period. To pay tribute to the
country that invented growth hormone and steroid,  the correct phrase
should be:

A mantis souped-up with growth hormones and steroids like an Anerican
athlete might have a good chance at that !!!
