Souvenir,

Actually, it doesn't. The urban Chinese have increasing asthma and other illness rates as we speak.

This isn't just an American concern. Multiple countries' athletes have expressed concerns about the air quality in Beijing. And I don't buy into the incessant China cheerleading by the IOC. They have a lot to lose and are naturally going to do whatever the Chinese govt. wants them to do.

Also, anyone who knows anything about high levels athletes know they are extremely guarded about the material entering their body. Diets are meticulous and training regimines are very strict. It's not surprising they are paranoid about air quality.

Uni,

You're absolutely correct. Actually, no one will give you a bigger load of bull on anything than an aspiring athlete.

Those Are Actually

1.  Those are actually bras - they are the newest American fashion sense, combining an expression of the feminine side of everything.  It all started with MacDonna wearing her cones on the OUTSIDE, and is along the same fashion sense of frat boys wearing undies on their heads.

2.  The American Surgeon General has determined that for the safety of the Chinese populance, it is better to cover up the filthy mouths of the Yankee brats.  Its much like putting restraints on rabid dogs.

3.  The "masks" are actually the 8th generation American doping system.  They deliver the maintenance dosage of the newest undetectable cheating chemical doping agents - have you noticed the rippling muscles on that thing that purports to be female?

The American Cheaters Will Be Roundly Booed

When the clowns come marching in with their bras on their heads.

Wait a minute, didn't John Bellucci wear a bra on his head in Animal House?  Just think of these clowns as a bunch of Bellucci wannabes, and just as doped out and ready to keel over like him.

They don't want to be recognized in case they lose out in the games.

I walked blocks after blocks in the thickest traffic in Beijing and never felt better.  Maybe they will let me run for them instead.
