With this new Olympics, there is also a lot of political tension, with many countries boycotting the Olympics by not sending government officials, including the US. While the one-two government official there was the president of China, Xi Jinping, and the president of Russia, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. So right now, there is a lot of tension above the Olympics. Many are wondering how this political tension will affect the Olympics.
