Can We Shake On It? Seemingly Not

The British Olympics Team are being advised not to shake hands with people during the Games. Seemingly there is a chance of infection and highly trained athletes are very vulnerable to even minor infections which can have a bad effect on performance. Is that really convincing? I dont think so. Seems more likely that athletes and indeed the public at large are being warned off shaking hands with people alleged to have different………ahem…….standards. Which seems like fairly standard Racism.

As I understand it over 10,000 athletes will be housed in the “Olympic Village”. The vast majority will be fit, healthy, young people aged between 18 to 30. The biggest 18-30 holiday experience ever. Anyone who knows anything about an Olympic Village will know that shaking hands should be the least of the British Olympic teams worries……in terms of passing infection.
