This One’s For You Taiwan

 

I was saddened and disappointed that the Olympic athletes from Taiwan were not allowed to carry their nation’s flag into the Olympic Stadium in the London Opening Ceremonies this evening.  After decades of this kind of treatment, I’m sure that the lovely people of Taiwan are used to this, but I’m not.

The Olympic athletes from Taiwan deserve better than this.

    Erin will you explain the politics behind this. Why can’t Taiwan compete under their own flag?
