The United States Olympic Committee said Sunday it is suspending its participation in the U:T.
because of an athlete’s display of “anti-gay, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic and xenophobic propaganda” at the trials.
The Olympic Committee issued a statement saying that while they respect the rights of people to express their views, the U.:T has a zero tolerance policy against bigotry and prejudice and the committee is now in the process of suspending its cooperation with the U., which has been providing support to the U.’s teams and athletes during the trials and the Games.
“We condemn in the strongest terms these abhorrent views,” the statement said.
“We hope the IOC will take this action to restore confidence in our Olympic Games and support the Olympic community in its work to promote equality, human rights and respect for diversity.”
It said the U.—the U.N.’s Olympic Committee—will work with other organizations to ensure that the trials remain fair and free of discrimination.
The U.T. said it will continue to cooperate with the IOC and with other institutions in order to ensure fairness.
The IOC also announced that it will be holding a summit on Monday in Los Angeles to discuss the issue of diversity at the Olympics.
It also said it is looking at ways to strengthen the Olympics’ response to human rights violations.
