!980 US Boycotts the olympics
Transcript of !980 US Boycotts the olympics
They voted 386-12 to go with Carter's plans. NBC NBC lost a lot of money because of the boycott. NBC had paid $85 million to get the rights to broadcast these olympics. .dsjkhfl NBC was planning on broadcasting 152.5 hours of the Olympic game for Americans to watch.
They had sold 98% of commercial spots by 1980.
NBC was planning on having a $25 million profit from these games. On the plus side... NBC bought insurance just in case something happened, about 90% of the money they paid was made up. Sources:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_Summer_Olympics_boycott What about the athletes? Carter had a meeting with 150 athletes and coaches and told them about the boycott. The athletes were all devastated. Some of them said that it was easy to back the president's decision as a citizen, but as an athlete it was hard. Most of the athletes reluctantly supported the president's decision.
Some of them said that he was politicizing the games. Boycotting the oylmpics this year did not have a big effect on the Soviets in Afghanistan
They stayed in Afghanistan for nearly a decade later. One thing it did effect was the reputation of the Moscow Olympics. What do you think? Was this boycott succesful? Or was this
boycott a failure? THE END!!!
