Olympics historian discusses protests
(2008-04-11)
(WOUB) - Looking at the headlines today, it's easy to forget that the Olympics is supposed to be all about building a peaceful and better world.

The focus is on protest instead of sports, and Olympics historian David Clay Large says organizers should think about making changes.

Large was scheduled to speak at Ohio University Thursday night on the so-called Nazi Olympics, when race and politics took center stage.

Large has written a number of books, including "Nazi Games: The Olympics of 1936."
