At the end of an Olympic Athlete media question period, Canadian Olympic snowboarder Michael Lambert said: “Really? No controversial questions?”
His following words question whether we really should be holding the Olympic Games as they are now. Why do we need to spend billions to create entirely new venues, buildings, etc. for a sporting event that is merely a matter of days in length? With all the need for development in the world, this seems utterly wasteful.
“A perfect Games isn’t someone who blows the budget through the roof for no reason, has people suffer, shuts people up. How is that a perfect Games? Spends ungodly amounts of money and then we are all going to watch it rot over the next 10 years.” Michael Lambert.
