From what we see in the video, looks like things are pretty calm so far in San Francisco!
With disruptions in the Olympic torch relay in Athens, Istanbul, London and Paris, and more expected to dog the event everywhere it goes, the IOC is having such a headache it is now mulling the cancellation of the remaining portion of international leg of the relay:
“This is something that obviously has to be discussed by the executive board,” IOC President Jacques Rogge told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Rogge said the rule-making board would consider the options on Friday.
Asked whether the continuation of the international relay was certain, he said: “I’m not saying whether it is certain or not. There will be a discussion of the executive board on the torch relay but I attach on that absolutely no speculation whatsoever.”
“I’m definitely concerned about what has happened in London and in Paris,” Rogge said. “I’m deeply saddened by the fact that such an important symbol has been attacked. We recognize the right for people to protest and express their views but it should be non-violent. We are very sad for all the athletes and the people who expected so much from the run and have been spoiled of their joy.”
