The problem with the IOC (in brief)

I’ve decided that we can distill the definition of the problem with the IOC down to one person: Prince Hubertus.

I know that what’s wrong with the IOC can fill (and has already filled) several books but I say that if you want the short course, look no further than Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg: a European aristocrat playing ski racer (and “pop singer”, no less).

Oh, I know Hubertus himself is not a member of the IOC. But just look at the list of IOC members. Look at the members representing European countries. Some of them don’t even have names, just titles. They probably don’t have any idea what that looks like to us over here in this part of the world.
