中國昨以台灣推動東京奧運正名公投為由,拔掉台中市明年舉辦東亞青年運動會主辦權,東奧正名公投發起人紀政25日在立法院表示,據她了解,就是曾擔任中華奧會國際組組長的姚元潮去密告,「我是非常的生氣,我們自己親愛的同胞,對於自己擁有的一切,自由民主的種種,難道沒有這樣的共識嗎?」不過,姚元潮早在前兩週就承認,就是他去投書國際奧會此事。

紀政上午在立法院的記者會上表示,姚元潮還是海軍上校,在台灣這塊土地上面,他竟然會去寫信,寫給EAOC去做這件事,對於台灣民主社會享有的權益,他不知道嗎?更何況這是民間社團所推動的活動,希望姚元潮能對民主初步的權益去做了解。

紀政強調,對於姚的舉動,她非常生氣,「難道生活在台灣這塊土地上,所擁有的自由民主,沒有這樣的共識嗎?我是非常生氣。」

不過,姚元潮早在兩週前就已在臉書證實,國際奧會已向我國奧會公開了投書告知,「台灣要為我國參加2020年東京奧運會的團隊改名為台灣舉辦公投」一事的人,「是我姚元潮」。但仍有人不知此事,屢問究竟是誰投書國際奧會?

姚元潮說,他長期服務於中華台北奧會,是從事國際事務的一名退休員工,深知我國奧會在國際運動上之處境及運作的困難。我國運動員,亦許是受愛國心的驅使,在國際賽會中,擅自使用非中華台北名稱,或揮舞及貼紙我國的國旗,幾度受到國際奧會的警告及懲罰,甚至發文提出非常嚴重的警告說:「如果我國奧會再度違反1981年3月23日於洛桑與我國奧會簽訂的協議,國際奧會對我國奧會的處分不再是取銷涉案選手或職員的資格,而是中止我奧會的會籍,直至認為狀況已有改善後為止.。」他提醒國人,不可不慎。

事實上,國際奧會已向我國奧會公開了投書告知「台灣要為我國參加2020年東京奧運會的團隊改名為台灣舉辦公投」一事的人是我姚元潮,但仍有人不知此事.屢問究竟是誰投書國際奧會?現在我把寫給國際奧會這封信的原稿公諸於大眾 並說明我為什麼要投書給國際奧會的原因:

我是長期(14年)服務於中華台北奧會,從事國際事務的一名退休員工,深知我國奧會在國際運動上之處境及運作的困難.我國運動員,亦許是受愛國心的驅使,在國際賽會中,擅自使用非中華台北名稱,或揮舞及貼紙我國的國旗,幾度受到國際奧會的警告及懲罰.甚至發文提出非常嚴重的警告說: 「如果我國奧會再度違反1981年3月23日於洛桑與我國奧會簽訂的協議,國際奧會對我國奧會的處分不再是取銷涉案選手或職員的資格,而是中止我奧會的會籍,直至認為狀況已有改善後為止. 」其原文如下:

In order to demonstrate that we regard this matter as extremely important, the IOC hereby give your NOC formal notice that any future violation of the agreement between the IOC, Chinese Olympic Committee and the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee will result no just in disqualification of the athletes and officials involved, but in suspension of the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee for such period as the IOC considers appropriate in the circumstances.

我國舉辦公投,要為我國參加2020年東京奧運會的團隊改名為台灣,顯然違反了在洛桑簽訂的協議,弄得不好,國際奧會,如最近發生於科威特政治干予運動事件一樣,中止我國奧會的會籍,故不可不慎.
以下是我寫給國際奧會這封信的原稿:
April 12, 2018
H.E. Thomas Bach
President, IOC
Dear Mr. President,
My name is Yao Yuan-chao, a retired colonel of army, now 88 years old. After my retirement from Ministry of National Defence, I was employed by and had worked for the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee for 14 years in charge of international affairs. I am a stalwart loyal to the Olympic Movement.

We know that you are unable to monitor and have to rely on people to speak up the event that may violate the IOC’s policy and affect a nation’s participation in the Olympic Games.

According to news report released on April 4, 2018 by the United Daily News, the Central Election Committee has examined and approved the referendum on “the right name of Taiwan for the Tokyo Olympic Games” proposed by Ms. Chi Cheng, an Olympic track star. The reason given by her is: “ The name of the National Olympic Committee must reflect the territorial extent”

Citing from the 2nd clause of article 30 of the Olympic Charter ”The name of an NOC must reflect the territorial extent”, Ms. Chi failed to cite the words that follow the part she has cited—and shall be subject to the approval of the IOC Executive Board. Particularly, she failed to cite the 1st clause of article 30 of the Olympic Charter that in the Olympic Charter, the expression “country” means an independent state recognized by the international community (United Nations)

Based on what is said in the above clauses, first, Taiwan doesn’t reflect the territorial extent of its country, since other than Taiwan, there are the Penghu Islands, Kinmen and Matsu. (Taiwan is a part of the Republic of China) Second, since not recognized by the International Community (United Nations), Taiwan is not a country.

As known to all, the name of the team from Taiwan participating in the Olympic Games had been a long time issue until the IOC went to great lengths to solve it by inking an Agreement signed between the International Olympic Committee and Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee in Lausanne on March 23, 1981. Both parties reached the following agreement on the name, and flag of our NOC:

1. The name of the NOC shall be CHINESE TAIPEI OLYMPIC COMMITTEE and is as such hereby approved by the IOC
2.The CTOC submits its flag and emblem as per attached specimens, which are hereby approved by the IOC .

Because of this referendum, which apparently acts as politics interfering with sports, it may cause the name’s problem again among the members of Olympic family and what’s more, increase cross-strait crisis, since what Ms. Chi Cheng and those people intend to do is to launch Taiwan independence under the guise of changing the name to Taiwan.
Former President Mr. Samaranch always stressed preventing something from getting worse by stopping it soon before it happens, that had helped prevent a lot of disputes from taking place between Chinese Olympic Committee and Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee. May I suggest that in respect of this referendum, the IOC issue a warning toward Taiwan authority through Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee so as to prevent any problems in the future from happening .

Sincerely,
Col. Yao Yuan-chao
