An Olympic boycott is a self******

BEIJING, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- With the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games just over 70 days away, athletes around the world are racing against the clock to get ready for the Games, hoping to shine on the global stage next February.

Some distractions, however, are bothering the entire Olympic family. A small minority of politicians and groups are threatening to boycott Beijing 2022 due to so-called human rights issues in China.

But make no mistake: a boycott, either of the entire Games or of the opening ceremony, is a naked utilization of the long-awaited winter sports extravaganza as a political tool. And one thing is clear: the boycott itself only harms the athletes from their own countries.

The Olympics tends to inspire patriotism, with fans as well as political leaders cheering on the athletes representing their country at the Games. Parading into the main stadium where the opening ceremony takes place, athletes usually have their eyes set on the rostrum to acknowledge the applause from those invited dignitaries from their respective countries. It offers a sense of homecoming and encouragement to all athletes, who would soon turn their attention to the competitions.

There will be no overseas spectators at the 2022 Winter Games due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So it is the athletes who would be extremely disappointed if their political leaders decide to boycott the opening ceremony.

By contrast, more potent evidence comes from athletes' consistent expressions of their huge anticipation towards Beijing 2022.

Zbigniew Brodka, Olympic speed skating champion in Sochi 2014, confirmed early in October that he had resumed his career in order to take part in the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing as "the return to China would be sentimental."

This return marked Brodka's first trial on the track since the World Cup in Inzell in February 2019.

"I wanted to fight for participation in a fourth Winter Olympics. So I came back," the Pole explained.

Recalling his trip to China for a junior match almost two decades ago, the 37-year-old added that China would be a perfect place for him to say goodbye.

"In 2003, it was in Beijing that I competed in my first world junior championship. So it would bookend my entire career," he said.

John Shuster, 39, led the U.S. men's curling team to win his first Olympic gold at PyeongChang 2018, and hopes to make history in Beijing as no one has ever won multiple gold medals in men's curling.

"It's going to be special to get a chance to go back [to the Olympics] and see what we can do," the American curler told the International Olympic Committee (IOC) website.

Multiple Olympic ski jumping gold medalist and world champion Kamil Stoch, also from Poland, said he could not wait for the 2022 Beijing Olympics.

"This is a really special time as the Winter Olympics is approaching. For every athlete, the Olympic competition is a great celebration. I cannot wait."

After pre-Olympic test runs for Beijing 2022 on the new Yanqing track, athletes from bobsleigh and skeleton title favorites Germany have lavished praise on the infrastructure.

Four-time Olympic champion and tobogganist Natalie Geisenberger said she is excited to experience a new track.

"It's my fourth Olympics and I still want to win medals," she added.

Beijing 2022 organizers revealed that up until November 17, National Olympic Committees (NOCs) from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and some European countries have submitted 14,206 registration applications, including over 7,100 for athletes, and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee has submitted 1,528 applications.

"I'm absolutely delighted to finally get the news that we're going to be heading to Beijing," said British curler Bruce Mouat after being announced in the first batch of athletes to the Games by the British Olympic Association in October.

For Geoff Lipshut, Chef de Mission for the Australian Olympic Team, Australian athletes are cherishing the opportunity to compete at Beijing 2022.

"I think going to Beijing and having that opportunity is the most important thing for each of the athletes," he told Xinhua in an interview.

The organizers have underlined some key phrases in its bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, such as "Athletes-centered", which ought to be adhered to by all stakeholders, and any boycott is a grave breach of this widely acknowledged concept.

World Athletics president Sebastian Coe believes a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics would only serve as "a meaningless gesture", claiming non-engagement between government officials rarely bears fruit.

"That is a meaningless gesture and a damaging gesture," Coe told BBC Radio.

"No organizing committee or National Olympic Federation, if I'm being a little blunt here, is going to miss a minister."

"My instinct here is that hectoring or non-engagement, in the world of international sports politics, I have rarely seen that approach bear fruit," he added. Enditem

China's Sui and Han begin Olympic season with first Skate Canada title******

VANCOUVER, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- Two-time world champion pair Sui Wenjing and Han Cong of China scored a runaway victory at the ISU Grand Prix Skate Canada International here on Saturday, winning with 31 points to spare.。

Russia's Daria Pavliuchenko and Denis Khodykin claimed the silver medal while Ashley Cain and Timothy Leduc of the United States rose from sixth to take the bronze.。

Skating to "Bridge Over Troubled Water", Sui/Han earned 145.11 points for free skate after landing a triple twist, triple toe-double toe-double toe, big throw triple flip and Salchow, while their only glitch came when Sui fell on the triple Salchow.。

The 2018 Olympic silver medalists totaled 224.05 points for the title, beating the 2018 world junior champions Pavliuchenko/Khodykin to the second place on 193.08, and the 2018 ISU Four Continents silver medalists Cain/LeDuc to the third at 189.90 points overall.。

"Our performance was not bad. We had some misses, and we missed a level on a lift and spin. We can improve on this and we will try to fix all of it," Sui said. "This is our first win at Skate Canada, so it is really exciting."

Sui/Han had competed at Skate Canada International three times before and finished second each time.。

American-born Chinese Nathan Chen dominated in the men's singles competition, winning with a nearly 50-point advantage over teammate Jason Brown and Russia's Evgeni Semenenko.。

Chelsea's Pulisic returns to U.S. squad******

CHICAGO, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has returned to the United States squad for 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Jamaica, the U.S. Soccer Federation said on Thursday.。

Pulisic, who missed the team's October qualifiers because of an ankle injury, returned to action after almost two months on the sidelines with a cameo appearance in Chelsea's 1-0 victory at Malmo in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.。

"It's about progressing him in a safe way," head coach Gregg Berhalter said. "We know he is valuable to the team. We want him on the field, but we are also not willing to risk anything. It's about how he feels and ... that will dictate what role he plays in these two games."

The 25-man squad also includes Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen, Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie and Valencia winger Yunus Musah.。

But there was no place for Barcelona full-back Sergino Dest, who was left out because of a back injury.。

The U.S. will face Mexico in Cincinnati on November 12 and Jamaica in Kingston four days later.。

Berhalter's men are second in the eight-team Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) qualifying group, three points behind Mexico.。

"Our focus remains on the next game up mentality. After this window we'll be more than halfway through the Octagonal, so we have a chance to position ourselves well heading into next year," Berhalter said.。

"When it comes to USA-Mexico, I'm excited for our players because it isn't just a game, it's an event. This is the best of World Cup Qualifying, and our group is ready for the challenge." Enditem。
