China Presses Injured Athletes in Quest for Gold

Ouuch. I often fret about the fairness of competition between the government funded and free willing. In a way, I reckon in the end things are pretty equal?  How’s to say those athletes are ‘forced’?  They could forgo the temptation of fame/money, be what they were before.  I’m not justifying the treatment or pressure of the government, Central or provincial, but China is free enough for its citizens to do pretty much they wish – the fact he made such claim that he’d like to quit through the team interpreter showed there is a large degree freedom.  Take it like a man.
