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.

Who cares? China's a great country. I couldn't care less if it was in the Arctic, because, as insider stated, all you're training and exercise would be not worth it. Summer Olympics only come every 4 years. So if you skip one year when you're, say, 26 because it's in China, think about the next Olympics, you'll be 30 already and way out of shape.
