Title says it all, does the Olympics lead to chauvinism or global unity?
I know the answer is of no real significance but I've just been thinking about this question a lot. In the Cold War it was a way of enhancing nationalism and ultimately further divided nations, are we past that yet, or does everyone still see the world as a "us versus them" scenario rather than "all for one"?
Does the Olympics divide or unite nations? watch

Our perception is skewed because we only see the competition bit, we don't see the life in the athletes village where the various competitors mingle and have fun together after their events.
