International Olympic Committee Commemorates Murder of 11 Athletes, 44 Years Later
When exactly does a situation move from absurdity to insanity? In this case, probably about 43 years ago. It has taken the IOC 44 years to recognize and commemorate the murder of 11 Israeli athletes during the 1972 Munich Olympics. After years of ignoring requests from the slain athletes’ families, the IOC has finally commemorated all athletes killed during past Olympics.
