Will we ever see an Olympic boycott again?

Thinking about the coming hosts, I don't see anyone having big problems with Brazil or Japan. Would North Korea boycott the games in South Korea....or would they send a team and then fake a bunch of news stories about them sweeping ALL of the competitions?

2022 bidding countries look to be Poland, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Norway and China.

I doubt we ever see a big boycott again like we had in 76, 80, and 84.

The 2022 bids are terrible.

I kinda hope it's Kazakhstan that gets the 2022 bid. I think Borat should light the flame.

Krakow and Oslo are pretty solid bids, IMO.

It's time to bring them back to America. For the Summer at least.

Oslo will win it if its legitimate.

Anchorage 2026 and Vancouver/Seattle 2028 in a multinational host.

You actually have to compete in a Winter Olympics before you can boycott one.

North Korea didn't send a team to Sochi and has won a total of two medals in the Winter Olympics - one in speed skating 1964 and one in short track in 1992.
