this is ridiculous actually.
so you're saying that an athlete that has trained his/her whole life, put in years of training, money (their own, and borrowed), time, life - everything. All of this for a chance (an honor actually) to compete for your country at the olympics would back out just because its being held in China?
i dont think so.
poor tibet, poor air quality and poor chinese citizens!
i'll boycott half of my life and all my hard work for you poor bastards!
thats complete bullshit.
