Countries A and B are scheduled to take the same bus to the Olympic Opening Ceremony. Country A enters and blocks Country B's delegation from entering the bus. Should Country A receive punishment from the IOC?
This would never happen. Hate speculation questions.
It actually did happen
Make team A walk.
Why would the Olympic Committee punish a team for something it's players did *while not at the game?*
That'd be like a kid getting punished at school for something he did at home. It makes no sense.
The Olympic Charter (for better and/or worse) applies beyond just the various athletic events.
I didn't say that it didn't, only that it shouldn't.
Didn't that happen between Israel and Lebanon?
Which was team A?
No matter who it was, yes, Team A should be punished.
Yes, that's about the most anti-– Olympics action you can have during the games.
