Today I want to discuss the current state of the Olympic games. As the world becomes a more progressive community the Olympics will always be a hallmark of the once primitive civilization that inhabited earth. Recent Olympics have shown an extremely large increase in the amount of acceptance various countries have seen. The 2018 Winter Olympics were help at Pyeong Chang, South Korea. This winter game was help in the month of march and symbolized an event where political forces forwent previous animosity and declared their interest in reconciliation. With Russian athletes banned from testing positive for performance enhancing drugs and representing themselves as an “Athlete” from Russia the unique aspects of the 2018 Olympics culminated in the joint representation that formed from an alliance between North and South Korea. This step toward denuclearization in the Korean peninsula really shows how the Olympics are a significant event that all cultures can appreciate.
