アメリカのオリンピック選手は、アメリカの国旗を身に着けることは名誉だと言います,' advocates for keeping politics out of games

“オリンピックになると, これは本当に私たちが持っているスポーツの中で最も非政治的な部分の1つです,” 彼は言った. “他にどこであなたは世界中のどこからでもすべての異なる国がこれに来るようにしていますか? And we’re not fighting; we get along inside this village and I think it’s a lesson for everyone.

And then when you bring politics into it… I think it just kind of taints everything.

CAITLYN JENNER SAYS AMERICA MUST MOVE FORWARD WITH ‘LOVE OF COUNTRY’ AND ‘BEING A PATRIOT’

Ellison said he wishes Americans who choose to bring politics into the mix by turning their backs to the flag would use their voice instead of alienating themselves from the nation they’re representing.

The Olympian restored hope in stating his belief that most athletes still have respect for the country and are proud to represent the USA.

Representing the USA is representing all the people,” 彼は言った. “Everything that we have in the USA, good and bad, and our flag. And I think a lot of people want to be on an Olympic team, no matter where they’re from, to represent their country at the highest level of sport.

Wearing that flag is an honor. Wearing USA is an honor and I would have to think that most of the people are definitely in that boat, the same boat that I’m in.
