Q&A: IOC's Anita DeFrantz on Peng Shuai, China and the second COVID-19 Olympics
"DeFrantz, who previously served two terms as a vice-president of the IOC, is one of 101 current IOC members.
Considering her background, the Philadelphia native is as qualified as anyone to address the concerns about the Beijing Olympics, with the Opening Ceremony kicking off the Games on Feb. 4.
With COVID-19 surging and China continuing to face criticism for human rights -- including on a sport-specific front with concerns about tennis player Peng Shuai’s safety -- many have questioned if it’s a good idea to go ahead with these Olympics."
