Why the Olympics has lost its luster

Originally aired: Monday, February 12, 2018

The PyeongChang Winter Olympics are in full force, and I watched a lot of it over the weekend. But I think the Olympics has lost much of its luster. Here's why. I cheer for our American athletes, but more and more, the people who represent other countries, aren't actually from those countries at all. They have become citizens of those countries because they didn't qualify in their own. It doesn't feel right. To become a citizen of another country to just to compete for their team makes the Olympics feel diluted.
