says it's not exactly surprising.He
says security is always a concern at the olympics and Beijing will be no exception."This is a very high profile event," Siebel
says the ultimate responsibility for security at the games rests with the host country.With the games just five months away and American athletes preparing to travel to Beijing, Siebel
says the USOC
is confident the Chinese authorities are on top of the security concerns.
