Thread: Would you go to Athens?

Would you go to Athens?
If you were an Olympic athlete, what would you be thinking about going to Athens at this point? Given the state of the world and the fact that they are WAY behind schedule, I think it's a definite that some bad $hit is going to happen over there.
If you were a top athlete in your sport, would you still feel comfortable going?
What if you had no chance of winning a medal?
What if you were a pro like an NBA player?
What if your son or daughter was the athlete, would feel comfortable sending them?
I know I'd be scared as hell going over there.

Would they dare attack a stadium? Right now the terrorists and the US are in the main battle. Kill a bunch of other nationalities...and their respective countries join the war on terror. The terrorists would be opening a huge bag of whoop ass upon themselves.
Then again...those savages have never been accused of being smart.

Al Quaeda and other extremist groups oppose the "western" way of life. Do you know what he birthplace of democracy is? Greece. It would be a very symbolic attack.

yep...i wouldn't want to go but i don't think it would be enough after the amount of training they do...i have the video South Paw...about Francis Barret and he fought in Alanta even though he came from a hard lifestyle....very moving...i don't think anything would have come between him and his dream...

I think security is gonna be a big deal especially with things running behind, this would certainly leave at least some things unchecked or things left open as they rush to get things done, and the US's current role in the world is a biggie as mentioned.

At the atlanta olympics there was a study amongst the atheletes. One of the q's was "if you could take a pill that would make you win but you would die 2 years later would you take it?" 70% said yes.
Most olympic atheletes have been training their whole lives to win a gold. If most are willing to take experimental drugs like thg and masking agents so they can win, im sure this risk wont be considered particularly large. JMO
Not saying all do take drugs but look at the chinese female swimmers form the past!!!
