That is just absolutely ridiculous. Okay, gagging in China may be okay (since it's against the law to speak out against the Chinese government in China, I think).But gagging them BEFORE the Olympics, that's just ridiculous.

It's probably just their attempt at trying to avoid having to deal with the athelete's accidentally saying anything bad that could damage political relations between Britain and China.
