It's lost most magic for me. Massive money grab, drugs & cheating, pro athletes in it now, does a ton of economic/cultural damage to the host city, horrible coverage with inane announcers (really noticeable if you ever played one of the sports).
I am also sick of the current angle of athletes "struggling with mental health". Most of these people have lived charmed lives and were groomed from this from an early age and are out there playing a game and making big bucks at it and yet can't stop with the mega drama about how tough they have it.
Also that which can't be named and how it's scared the crowds away and Tokyo residents have decided to take a vacation out of the city to avoid the whole thing and yet the show goes on... more signs it's a shameless money grab.
Some of the new events they can't even listen and structure the event in a way that makes sense for the sport as opposed to messing with the sport to make an artificial show to get better TV ratings.
I've had that impression since 1996 when the Olympics were hosted here in the metro Atlanta area.
It is a respite for ugly personality people who are low life disrepective of society. However they think their style of life is what everyone else also deserves . There are tubes! And we are going down them.I'd say all magic from the Olympics is gone for me. Once upon a time I enjoyed them, but not anymore. Sports is no longer a respite from the ugliness of the World.
