Scared by the super-fast continuous and unstoppable growth of China??..

It's a normal reaction..

First, I am still hoping that the genocide games will be so thoroughly boycotted that they would have to be canceled. The tantram the chinese would throw would be better than any Olympics.

If they must go ahead I would love to see their mens hockey team have to play Canada. 15-0 is a good start.

As well, have the 2 Michaels suit up and let them loose to play a couple shifts.

It's a good start, I'd say.

Let them play!

I love it when Chinese competitors yell, "wocoa", over and over and over. High class.

Someone needs to setup a deep fake video filter that puts Pooh bear's head on Xi automatically too.

Not really an Olympic supporter these days anymore, but disregarding that for the sake of argument.

Easy solution is that no country should have an automatic-in to any sport just because they are the host; they should have to meet the standard of competition in the sport first. Hockey is...simply not China's sport, compared to their showings in things like figure skating.

Let em play. Time for Canada to get some payback.

As if the CCP will allow them to suffer humiliation at the hands of USA/Canada.

Would be worth enjoying though!

The Chinese players would just get themselves injured, lol

There's a reason even big NFL players consider hockey players the toughest

There are many sports where being tough matters. Some you'd never think about where people die and not from typical heart attacks or heat stroke or non-event related issues (cancer/leukemia)

Bobsleigh. Far too many deaths in this sport.

Luge.

Boxing.

Bicycle racing. Usually accidents on the road or track or once a front fork broke.

10m diving. Spinning into the concrete platform can kill and has multiple times.
