Romney was really wrong about the Olympics…London wasn’t ready, according to him….actually, Romney was wrong about most things on his recent trip to Europe. Very worrying for all of us.
Much to Mitt (is that a name?) Romney’s surprise, London produced one of the greatest Olympics ever and the British came a strong third to China and the US, countries with vast populations and resources. However, a huge debate about sports funding has erupted in Britain and calls from all quarters that the momentum created be built on for the benefit of future generations.
By contrast, here in Poland the European cup is almost forgotten, the legacy more concerns whether the building subcontractors will be paid for the stadia than how to bring sport to more people. As for the Olympics…here hardly anything in the media. contrary to what Mr. Romney claimed about the state of democracy in Poland, surely nothing can be more condemning of the political class that runs this country that even its triumphs, and the Euro was, have been mired by fraud and corruption. As for legacy, there will be none. Roll on the revolution!
