It's not in every country that athletes make big money and are treated like celebrities.  In some countries they have to work very hard with little resources, and have to compete with atheletes from countries that are trained with sophisticated technology.  I doubt the sports boycott on apartheid south africa had much of an effect, there were always ways to get around it.  Why didn't the western countries impose more severe trade restrictions and boycotts at that time?  Who supplied their racist regime with arms and traded with them?
