As per news report of NDTV, The decision -- which stopped short of preventing athletes from attending -- comes after Washington spent months wrangling over what position to take on the Games beginning in February next year. The move drew fiery opposition from Beijing, which threatened countermeasures and slammed the announcement as violating "political neutrality in sport". "The US attempt to interfere with the Beijing Winter Olympics out of ideological prejudice, based on lies and rumors, will only expose (its) sinister intentions," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters. "The US should stop politicizing sports and stop its words and actions that interfere in and undermine the Beijing Winter Olympics."
