Had the dubious...distinction of meeting Bach while he was here before. He is about as smarmy in person as you would expect.

I can't expect much of note came out of this meeting honestly. If China isn't going to cancel the Olympics, I doubt any nation would at this point.

The Chinese are total liars - having pledged to guarantee these Games as being completely environmentally sound and green, they deploy hundreds of machines working flat-out around the clock wasting 222 million litres of water to create fake-snow. And so the charade continues, with the creepy Bach slipping into town to collect more large brown-envelopes from Winnie-the-Pooh.

Just a total disgrace.

Chinese diplomats refuse to have any contacts with their Australian counterparts, but Jinping happily meets the Australian head of the compliant IOC.

Unbelievable yet true.

The IOC (and Bach) certainly suck, but I am not seeing the hypocrisy there. The IOC isn't a representative body of Australia, they aren't functioning as Australian diplomats.

But Coates, as an IOC vice president, represents Australia in a pseudo diplomatic role. By association, his sub-submissiveness to the IOC cartel discredits the Australian public.
