In Olympic’s News

Joey Cheeks, Olympiad and founder of Team Darfur has had his Visa revoked hours before he was scheduled to leave for Beijing. China is not letting him in the country to attend the Olympics. There is no mention on why his Visa has been revoked.

Team Darfur is an international association of athletes devoted to raising awareness of the humanitarian crisis in Darfur. China has been under fire because of their economic and diplomatic support of Omar al-Bashir who currently faces genocide charges in the International Criminal Court.
