While the root of this story involves one Chinese track team member, it also involves the Internet and, well, NIKE, so it's "in our wheelhouse" here @ SUS.
Seems as though the sportswear behemoth felt a little threatened by — I kid you not — the words written by ONE blogger. In China.
That reminds me of one of my favorite quips about China (I read it in Tom Friedman's "The World is Flat"). The saying goes, if you're "one in a million" —in China 2,500 people just like you.
Anyway, I saw this NIKE conspiracy theory at GAWKER.com
It's disturbing no matter how much of it is fabricated (or not) just from the company's reaction. Like...huh?
