Witness – The Other Olympics (Video)

From Al Jazeera English – AJE:

If you are Tibetan, the only way you can compete at the Beijing Olympics is by renouncing your Tibetan identity and registering as a Chinese athlete. Many Tibetan athletes in exile have refused to do this and are instead participating in the ‘Tibetan Olympics’ in northern India. Witness follows two participants as they prepare for and then participate in ‘The Other Olympics’.
