我們是在進步嗎?

東方巨龍終於可以鬆口氣吧! 京奧圓滿閉幕,國家運動員不負13億人民的期望(根據各傳媒的說法,中國選手贏了是「為13億人爭光」,讓獎牌跑掉則是「傷透13億人的心」),順利使中國躋身金牌榜榜首。京奧的官方網站傲然展示著這張成績單,彷彿這就是舉辦京奧的最終目標。

但原來,這麼一個獎牌榜是根本地違反了奧運精神。

《奧林匹克憲章》第58條規定,國際奧委會和奧組委不應就各國獎牌數目,排列名次;第六條則指明奧運會是運動員就個人或隊際項目的競技較量,而並非國與國之間的鬥爭。本來,奧運會是鼓勵國與國之間的和平。古時,打仗是家常便飯,一旦開戰便沒完沒了,除了在奧運期間,各城邦才會休戰,好讓各路健兒在和平下公平競賽。

然而今天,我們不單依然彼此戰鬥殺戮,(且看俄羅斯在京奧開幕當晚做了甚麼好事)。奧運亦成為了展示「國力」的戰場,甚而直截了當的說成是甚麼中美之爭,雙方力求稱霸體壇。傳媒更是同心協力,推波助瀾。中方媒體的獎牌榜,中國一直排首位,大概因為只計金牌數目;美方媒體包括CNN等的詮釋,則是美國以總獎牌數目最多名列榜首。連主辦單位也帶頭把賽果化為各國比併的成績表,公然違規!

奧運會的包裝愈趨豪華,設施配套愈趨完善,但距離奧林匹克精神,卻是否愈來愈遠呢?

2000年的悉尼奧運官方網頁, 就已經有金牌榜:

2004的雅典奧運亦不例外:

連IOC本身的網頁亦不例外: (隨便選了兩個)

我不評論這樣做是否違章, 不過如果只針對北京奧組委, 是否有點兒那個?

Mr. Johnson I

what Ms Miu is saying on her blog is her own opinion on the issue that all people NOW are focused on the QTY of how many 金牌, the true meaning of Olympia game should be the sportsmanship, friendship of different country among 運動員, NOT just single-\mindedly concern about the result of chasing metal...

like life, we should never just thinking about how much we make, how much money we have, think about those 2 fireman who gave up their own life to save others..

Please open your mind when you looking other people's blog..

don't be over reactive about anything people have opposite idea or some comments about "CHINA"

Love your country does not mean, you listen only good comments about it, or think people with other opinion about your country is because those people are 只針對 your lovely country.

Ms Miu, 我撑你..
