Don’t mention it! Ledecka bans word ‘Olympics’ to ease nerves

Prague (AFP) – Two-time Olympic champion Ester Ledecka said last Friday she would ban her team, family, journalists and everyone around her from saying the word “Olympics” in her presence under a hefty fine. The 2022 Games in Beijing will from now on be dubbed “the little Chinese friendly” to ease the pressure, following good experience from the 2018 Winter Olympics, Ledecka told reporters in Prague.
