Bush criticised for hijacking Olympics
Updated: 2004-08-26 09:15

Olympic officials are seething at a campaign ad for President Bush which, they say, hijacks the Olympic brand. The television advertisement does not feature the five Olympic rings -- one of the world's most recognizable images -- but an announcer tells viewers that at "this Olympics there will be two more free nations," referring to the U.S.-led invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. A frame from the ad is shown from the Bush campaign Website. [Reuters]
