Save our Olympic Athletes!

As Covid-19 cases skyrocket in China and reports of hemorrhagic fever leak out, concern for the health and safety of U.S. Olympic athletes must be prioritized by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC).
But for the evident desire not to prompt harsh retaliation by the Chinese government, it seems clear that neither the USOPC nor the IOC would contemplate sending the world’s athletes and their supporting staff into such an environment. Fear of the Chinese Communist Party’s bullying, however, must not take precedence over the safety and wellbeing, to say nothing of the lives, of our Olympians.
Consequently, we call on the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee to act immediately to recommend that America’s premier athletes and their coaches, trainers, etc. not participate in the Beijing Winter Games. Such a recommendation should be accompanied by a commitment by the USOPC to make every effort to find an appropriate alternative location, hopefully in the near future, for these Olympians to compete with their international peers.
