Olympic Committee Votes Against Discrimination

The Sochi Olympics was an ugly time that showed Russia discriminating against gay individuals and supporters.  The Olympic Committee has approved today that the Agenda in 2020 is to include non-discrimination with regard to sexual orientation.   The new policy states:  'Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement'.  This pretty much means that countries that discriminate against gay people will not be able to host in the future.  I really hope they stick to this because Sochi was a horrible example of what the Olympics are suppose to stand for.
