### HideShow timer Statistics

Though I am an amateur athlete, a long-distance runner, I have no love of the Olympic Games. The original purpose was noble, but the games have become a vehicle for politics and money. For example, when the media mention the 1980 winter games at Lake Placid, they invariably show footage of a hockey game. The real story of the 1980 games, Eric Heiden's winning five gold medals in speedskating, is all but forgotten.

The speaker above implies that
A) Eric Heiden was a better hockey player than speedskater
B) Most people would prefer to watch speedskating over hockey
C) Hockey produces money while speedskating does not
D) Only professional athletes compete in the Olympic Games
E) Amateur atheletes are more exciting to watch than professional atheletes
