The shiny rings of the Olympic Games have grown tarnished over the years as doping, corruption, and other scandals rise to the surface. Those scandals are the tip of the iceberg, according to author Christopher A.Shaw, the lead spokesperson for several anti-Games groups. "Five Ring Circus" details the history of how Vancouver won the bid for the 2010 Games, who was involved, and what the real motives were.
