I feel as an Australian proud of our athletes no matter where they come. The dedication they have demonstrated and perseverance is admirable.

However, 2 aspects I find distressing

1… people complaining of the lack of medals, in the big scheme does it really matter?

2… the suggestion that more money should be provided for the athletes. In a world where there are so many people without adequate house, food, medical care and education.

I ask the question what the Olympics are really about or should be about

And

For our nation and others where are our priorities?

    I agree with you. Life is not always about winning; it’s about participating (and everyone should have an opportunity to do that).
