Equality and games (off-side 14)

Here are some pictures, I took for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games ‘Rio 2016‘, through my television:

Rio 0Rio 2

Allow me give – on this occasion – 3 observations on the organization of these games:

1) Political influence on this games, like all global sports competitions, become stronger and more affecting the neutrality of sports.

Rio 3Rio 1

2)The scale contains several classes of players, instead of 2 (amateurs and professionals). The treatment of the media, the public, pubs …. And of course the standard of accommodation … radically change from one class to another.

3)The pleasure of watching sporting events, is becoming more expensive and out of reach billions of people on earth. The monopolization of transmission of sporting events, by some audio-visual companies may pass the Olympic Games in 2020, far from the eyes of more than 4 billion inhabitants of this planet town.
