Basically being use as a loophole to add more chinese athletes in the olympic. Anything that hong Kong and Taiwan achieve in the olympic is considered in the eyes of china theirs.

1 country, 1 team. Same for beauty/scholarship pageants. Seems only fair. Apply that world-wide. US territories too. US-VI, Puerto Rico, Guam, should be in the Miss USA/America competitions inside the country, not external. HK, Macau are part of China.

The only place where it wouldn't be fair is with Taiwan. Taiwan is a different country.
