Officials to review gag on Olympic athletes (Paul Kelso, 2/11/08, The Guardian)

The British Olympic Association is to review its athletes' contract for the Beijing Games after criticism of a clause which had prevented competitors from making political statements in China.

The clause, which appeared to go beyond the requirements of the Olympic charter, will be softened although athletes who engage in overt political demonstrations or statements could still risk being sent home.

...what would be the point of pretending otherwise?
