Pinsent raises questions about Olympics in China
An incredible story has emerged from China, the host country of the 2008 Olympic Games, in a report by four-times Olympic gold-medallist Matthew Pinsent.? Pinsent claims to have seen children being abused during training camps in readiness for the hosting of the Olympic Games.? These are pretty serious allegations coming from a very high-profile athlete within the Olympic movement.
Pinsent, who described children in pain while training and claimed a boy had been beaten by his coach, said: “It was a pretty disturbing experience.”
We await an official response from either the IOC or the Organising Committee of the 2008 Games.? Clearly there is a problem here and I sincerely hope it will not be swept under the carpet.
