Olympian Eileen Gu ruffles US skiers with
decision to compete for China

Original Article

Posted By: AltaD, 2/1/2022 1:35:45 PM

She could be America’s next Olympic darling — a stunning 18-year-old skier who signed with Victoria’s Secret and plans to attend Stanford after she vies for gold in Beijing. But Eileen Gu won’t be competing for the US. Instead, in a move that’s baffled members of the American skiing community, San Francisco-born-and bred Gu has joined Team China. (Snip) “She became the athlete she is because she grew up in the United States, where she had access to premier training grounds and coaching that, as a female, she might not have had in China,” Hudak told The Post. “I think she would be a different skier if she grew up in China.

#3, that is outside the available remedies for her action, as appealing as it may sound. Quite likely she was told that relatives still in China may suffer unfortunate consequences unless she competes for the motherland. What's to be done? First, the American team needs to make sure this ingrate gets nowhere near the podium. It's too much to expect that Stanford will change its mind, but hopefully she will lose out on any endorsements.

Though she was born in the U.S. her mother is Chinese and is the one who has pushed her to be so successful. Any female born alive in China in the last 45 years has to be pretty competitive right from the moment of conception.

It's pretty easy to compete on foreign Olympic teams. I think you just have to have a connection to the country. A number of years ago, Becky Hammond, a then-WNBA star (and now an assistant coach for the NBA San Antonio Spurs and just recently named head coach of the WNBA Las Vegas team) used to play for a Russian team in the WNBA-off season. She ended up competing on the Russian Olympic team.

So she "skis for China"...big deal. Victoria's Secret sells underwear globally. Did you read the story and see the picture of her with her billboard skis and clothing? Cadillacs are among the largest selling brand of cars in China - 233,117 Cadillacs delivered there in 2021 compared to 118,032 in the US.

She's been outsourced to China. American Companies large and small do it all the time. One day, she'll realize something grossly diabolical about the country and the people.

There is rather a lot of information on Gu’s status - citizenship, etc. - in this VOA article. Neither the US nor China allows dual citizenship. And the IOC rules say: According to Rule 41 of the IOC Charter, "1. Any competitor in the Olympic Games must be a national of the country of the NOC which is entering such competitor. 2. All matters relating to the determination of the country which a competitor may represent in the Olympic Games shall be resolved by the IOC Executive Board." Gu also needs to comply with International Ski Federation (FIS) and National Olympic Committee rules. The FIS lists her as a Chinese athlete. "A skier must be licensed by their home country to represent that nation, so Eileen Gu must have officially changed her license. According to Chinese media reports she did this in 2019 when she was 15," Masteralexis said. Although Masteralexis thinks Gu is following both the IOC and FIS rules, she said, "It has been reported in Chinese media going back 2-3 years that Eileen Gu was granted Chinese citizenship and China does not recognize dual citizenship. The US does recognize dual citizenship, so one does wonder if China has created an exception for Gu.” Or she has dropped her U. S. citizenship? This VOA article reveals many efforts to find out her true status.

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg's new National Roadway Safety Strategy (NRSS) promotes speed cameras nationwide to make our roads safer. But research shows that speed cameras are subject to error and actually end up serving as a means to generate government revenue.(Snip) However, the cameras can commit errors when it comes to actually ticketing the right offenders. This can be a problem for drivers—but a windfall for enforcers. In Chicago, where speed cameras are abundant, the camera program improperly gave out over $2.4 million in fines from 2013 to 2015. Using a random sample analysis, the Chicago Tribune estimated the number of bad tickets to be somewhere around 110,000.

JB Pritzker were ready to reduce mitigations. When Covid-19 vaccines arrived, many experts said that once enough people had been immunized, so-called herd immunity could kick in and effectively end the pandemic.

So when might Illinois and Chicago see an end to rules such as requiring proof of vaccination to

Included in the grant, which is overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services, are funds for "smoking kits/supplies."

They are a versatile fashion accessory and a staple in every woman's wardrobe. But now researchers say wearing ladies tights on your face could slash your risk of getting Covid. One of the criticisms aimed at commonly worn face coverings is that they do not fit tightly enough to significantly block viral particles from being inhaled or exhaled. As part of a new study, Cambridge University experts reviewed a variety of DIY hacks people have used to make masks fit better, including using rubber bands or tape. Curiously, they found the most effective tactic was to wrap pantyhose around the bottom half of the face—on top of a mask.
