Malaysian Olympic Observation

It's an interesting observation that out of the 33 Malaysian athletes going to the Beijing Olympics, 23 out of the 33 are Chinese. That's 66%. (Even though 26% of the population of Malaysia are Chinese).

At least meritocracy is alive in the arena of sports in Malaysia. Imagine if they had quotas on the racial composition of the Olympic contingent.
