It's a shame if that happens.
I am very confident they will be looked back on as landmark Games. There are problems here, there are problems at every Games. With a global audience of three or four billion people it is the most watched event. What is important is how these difficulties are dealt with.
This is a global event and we think and we hope that the stadiums would not become a platform for political debate. His group will "absolutely" respect Brazilian law.
People should be free to compete in tranquility and not be addressed by others. We would encourage people to respect their fellow competitors. Brazilian fans seem to be pretty egalitarian. They seem to boo athletes from many countries. It's quite difficult to work out why they might be booing one athlete and not another.
That's a disappointment, a personal disappointment, obviously for everyone involved in that. It's a disappointment for us but I think it shows our determination that cheats don't prosper.
It's the first time in Olympic history that the suspension of an NOC (National Olympic Committee) has been lifted during the games and the decision will have an immediate impact. Indian athletes entered the Sochi Games under the Olympic flag as independent athletes during the opening ceremony and have competed as such so far, or one has, in luge.
