Road Block

It is reported that the Road to Athens, a race to celebrate the forthcoming Olympic games being held in Athens, has been cancelled.

The Road To Athens, which claimed rather pompously to be capable of spreading a universal message of "Peace, Love and Friendship" etc, was to have taken place across 6 countries and over 50 cities.

It would have involved 21 Arab athletes, the symbolism of this event in light of the current world situation is therefore clear.

However, money talks these days; the withdrawal of a key sponsor sunk the race without trace.
