Last Olympics – 1976

Last Olympics – 1976
This spectacle broadcast from Montreal, Canada took place in the summer of 1976.
As a harbinger of the stark and abject politicization of future olympic games, twenty-nine countries, mostly African, boycotted the Montreal Games when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) refused to ban New Zealand, after the New Zealand national rugby union team had toured South Africa earlier in 1976 in defiance of the United Nations’ calls for a sporting embargo of the country.
Regardless, as a still naive young teenager, one was so very excited to see the variety of countries and their representatives, along with flags, anthems, and languages.
At the time, one really felt a deep sense of world unity through friendly, if not intense sporting competition.
Here, all representatives created a sense of fairness and sportsmanship, even if outside of these games the political ideologies of the participating nations could not have been more disconnected.
These sporting events used to connect the common citizens of the world bringing joy and excitement to otherwise somewhat mundane and dull existences.
One of the most spectacular highlights, not only of this particular game, but in the entire sporting world ever, was gymnast Nadia Comăneci of Romania.
At age 14, she became the first person to score a perfect 10, not only once, but seven perfect 10.00 scores.
Interestingly enough, and similar to the Y2K problem, the scoreboard could hold only 3 digits and the score was shown as 1.00.
Alas, starting in 1980, the olympics became a vile political weapon, extinguishing the essence and meaning of what was once an important sporting event.
Led by the United States, 66 countries boycotted the games entirely because of the Soviet–Afghan War.
Then, as always, just like immature snotty little brats on the school yard playground doing a tit-for-tat, the Soviet Union would later boycott the 1984 Summer olympics.
Regardless of all the olympics having transpired since then, abject greed and power has only increased by an order of magnitude over the years.
This has left the IOC and their ilk with their insatiable pockets lined, but have left their soulless carcasses universally despised, especially by the common Japanese citizens, who will receive no benefit whatsoever, except for mountains of inter-generational debt.
Like all in this despicable avaricious clique, they are truly psychopaths without regard for common sense or the lives of the Japanese.
Always remember, when seeing at these grotesque faces, one is not seeing any semblance of humanity, but a universal representation of abject greed, power, and malice toward not only the Japanese citizens, but their distain for humanity in general.
Look upon these predators with with scorn, distrust, and contempt, for this is the way they look at us.
To be clear, there’s also a swath of culpable greedy Japanese, and they are merely minions of the IOC corruption and graft culture, and do not represent the Japanese people one knows and loves.
In fact, these Japanese have become so drunk with corrupt power and greed, they can be considered weak minded and filthy, and not worthy of a Japanese passport.
Now, with the recent rumblings from the occidental world to boycott the next olympics in China, all can now confirm the olympics is officially dead, and a fetid cesspool of greed, corruption, and malfeasance, with its ugly face now in plain sight for all who care to see.
Who will be the big winner at the Tokyo 2020 olympics?
That would be the IOC.
Recently there has been strong voices in Japan to include more women in important positions. Unfortunately for Seiko Hashimoto, she has been nominated to be the sacrificial lamb to this farcical spectacle. However, true to Japanese spirit of sacrifice, she wears this mission with honour, and is reminiscent of the page from the tragic tales in the seminal book entitled “The Nobility of Failure” by Ivan Morris.
The final the nail in the olympic coffin.
New Zealand weightlifter Hubbard to become first transgender athlete to compete at games.
Truly, one is a person who understands all kinds of people, but when it comes to men and women sports, it’s a different story.
A true pity for the actual biological women who have worked so very hard in this tough sport, and are now facing unprecedented competition from someone who was a biological male for the first 35 years of life.
