"these are the world's greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks"
Folks, am I mistaken, or did we not send a basketball team to the summer Olympics a few years ago that was either all black or all black save one player, and it got CREAMED by predominantly white European and Hispanic Latin American teams???
Does anyone see the irony in this?

No, because he was talking specifically about the WINTER Olympics, for which that would basically be true.
Of course, Gumbel didn't worry about all the orientals in the winter Games.
