Putin turned Sochi Winter Olympic Games into another power play
We'll see. Truth is, it wouldn't take much to end this recent bad chapter and change the Olympics for the better. Bach and the IOC need only to shift emphasis, expand the already enshrined ideals, and add some teeth to give them true bite. The alternative is to go on pretending that the games weren't just used as moral cover for a bully's ongoing power grab. The alternative is to keep watching their new friend glower on the news, and worry over what he'll do next.
