Abstract

Large international sporting events which celebrate nationalism are ecological and social anachronisms which must not be any longer tolerated. The competition of individual athletes is embedded in a larger competition between nations states, the largest entities of a capitalist economic system. The athletes turn into ambassadors for the achievements of a society, an economy, a civilization and their accumulated won medals into the PISA ranking of physical not intellectual prowess. Statistics confirm that won medals in relation to the total population of a nation are a clear indicator of economic development in GDP terms. Profit driven nationalism must stop for the sake of global sustainability.
