Ah, Olympics in Japan. What a time for ultra-nationalist propaganda, where only Judo and Swimming are worth for TV exposure, ignoring all other sports. Where only the winners are shown, so people can be proud of being -we the japanese-.

Unbelievable that they have money for this, but when it comes to actually supporting the athletes to make it to the Olympics it is always, "Sorry, you're on your own."

Says a lot about priorities in Japan. :-(

Good luck, peeps! Glad the uniforms are not the disgrace they were at Sydney, at least.
