More Olympic Talk from Stojko

Elvis Stojko has made some more comments seemingly advocating an athlete boycott of this summer's Olympic games in Beijing. The comments were in Sharp magazine, and here's what Stojko said:

"Canadians, we live in a bubble. But there are other people around the world, and especially with Beijing hosting the Games, there’s a chance to make some pressure on China in order to change and to move forward and treat their people the way they should be treated. This may be the first time a generation must, if they decide to, give up what they want in order to help other people."

Stojko also mentions having only received negative feedback from one athlete. Regardless, I don't think an athletic boycott is really in the cards for this Olympics, although this article gives a little summary of Olympic protests that is interesting.
