SHELAGH BELL: ‘VANOC has killed the true meaning of the Olympic spirit’

Thank you to Jack Knox for his Jan. 24 column about the Olympics and Mr. Nice Guy.

He put into words what many of us feel.

VANOC has killed the true meaning of the Olympic spirit.

Now the only ting that seems to matter is winning gold.

I suppose if an athlete doesn’t manage to do that they are discounted and ignored.

Knox had a column on Jan. 26 telling us to “suck it up” and enjoy the Games.

A lovely thought, but not for me.
