Host city selection[edit]

The following statement is: a) Completely in the wrong location. b) Doesn't seem to be accurate considering this article states that the decision to pick Berlin was made before the fascist government had risen to power.

"...Academics cannot agree whether the IOC during this period was a willing collaborator or an organisation that favoured the aesthetics of fascist governments.[7] Although the IOC was insulated from the reality of Nazism, elements of Hitler's regime subscribed to the sporting ideologies of the IOC.[7]"

Farther to what Wintonian said earlier, the reference 7 is a book. The paragraph in question is all insinuation, and doesn't seem to represent broad debate amongst academics.

This statement should be moved or possibly removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:48, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
