Olympic Spirit or Olympic Joke?

0

Since the Beijing Olympics actually officially being today, I thought I’d put up this video from the Sydney Olympics. Check it out. I would guess that this type of performance makes up about 1-2% performances at any given games. Is this a good embodiment of the Olympic Spirit or does this make a mockery of everyone involved. Post thoughts to the forum.
