Equality vs. Equity in the Olympic Games

By Culla Galaher, OHSU UCEDD Intern

I haven't been watching the Olympics. The more I think about it, the more unfair the Olympics become. The Olympics are based on the idea of "equality." Equality means everyone gets the same thing and performs under the same conditions. The Olympics strives to create a controlled environment where the only variable is the athletic talent of the Olympians. But this concept is inherently flawed in that not all athletes are the same.
