Rule 40 prohibits Olympic athletes from mentioning their sponsors while the Olympics are in session. As Twitchy reported on Sunday, many U.S. track and field athletes have spoken out against the rule. Symmonds will be representing the U.S. in the 800 meters on Monday.
Olympic athletes are not given tickets from the IOC. Parents, spouses, coaches, forced to watch on TV. #WeDemandChange
