I view it as being completely appropriate. Every other country's athlete does it, what makes our flag any more special? Our flag has been dropped, burned, buried, spit on, shit on, pissed on, torn...... I'm sure Old Glory is happy to be wrapped around our athletes in such competition against the world....this is the Olympics, a contest among the greatest athletes, a tradition and competition held way before there was even a United States.
