The author has written an excellent article. You made your point and not much to discuss. It's like this universal truth that you can not argue with the truth is not universal, everything has its exception. Thanks for this information.

Although I'm well aware there is much that goes on behind the scenes of the Olympics, I have to admit I never really thought about how athletes transported all of their equipment, etc. nor did I consider all of the security risks involved. Very informative article!
