Olympic Thoughts part 3

I've written about the Olympics a couple of times before now but as we get closer there are additional stories so I'll continue the series.

Pollution has been been a concern ever since the games were awarded to Beijing and it continues to be now, just a month before the games after spending $20B to combat it.

Beijing has been shrouded in thick smog, with buildings just a few hundred feet away being barely visible.
A willingness to close factories is encouraging, but lets hope that is enough.

And in other Olympic news, Kenya has announced its Olympic team. It should be a formidable team especially with Pamela Jelimo in the womens 800. The mens 1500 surprisingly is missing a few big names.
