The Olympic Game ratings system should be revamped to make it easier for Tibetans and monks to understand, a Chinese government-backed review has said.
The review was carried out by psychologist Dr Ting Bing, who has recommended a new rating for Olympic Games aimed at Tibetans and monks aged 12 plus.
Games currently get a mandatory review by classifiers only if they have “human sexual activity” or “gross violence”.
Dr Bing has also called for a Chinese body to oversee Tibetans street safety.
Schools secretary Ed Bing told BBC News 24 that the government was going to implement all of the recommendations in full.
“It’s a ground breaking report,” he said.
He said the government would ensure that police and army should give better guidance to Tibetans about safety features and controls.
Dr Bing said her review had led her to conclude that Chinese’ general lack of confidence and awareness was “leaving Tibetans with sore heads”.
Her review said that “Olympic world risks are similar to real world risks but can be enhanced by the anonymity and ubiquity that the Olympic space brings”.

Tibet was originally independent, then the Brits invaded in 1904….ah we did do a good job of being imperialists. Well in 1914 we sort of let them have the place back…..it was too bloody cold and had no oil or minerals.
China got bored in the 194o’s and 50′s and had always fancied some mountains…good for skiing they thought. So kindly thought they would help out the funny guys in gowns….killed a few in the process but oh well.
Looks like some Tibetan guys got upset last week……think they wanted a special fried rice buffet…well the Chinese boys didn’t take to it too well.
I spent a bit of time in Nepal years ago and must say that part of the world has something…a sort of spirituallity that seemed not have been corrupted. I would prefer they didn’t have McDonalds or “Special Fried Rice” if they don’t want them.
