Chinese athletes brought glory to their country at the Tokyo Olympics through shooting, diving, weight lifting and table tennis. China hopes the Winter Olympics in Beijing will further boost the nation's international reputation by creating a harmonious atmosphere among skiers and snowboarders. However, the delegations of many countries face a dilemma. Are they obliged to take a stance on China's human rights record? Or should they endeavour to separate politics from sport? In this podcast, renowned author Bill Emmott, chair of the Japan Society of the UK, discusses the response of the Japanese delegation with podcast host, Duncan Bartlett, the Editor of Asian Affairs magazine.
