Professional VS Amateur Athletes in the Olympics

In the old days, the Olympics allowed only the amateur athletes. Nowadays, even professional players can represent their countries in the Olympics. I have no problem with this rule, but I feel bad for the amateurs competing in sports wherein their opponents are professionals.

It allows countries to be represented by their best athletes, giving them the best chance of winning against their competition. This also gives the amateurs an opportunity to compete against the best out there and to learn from their experienced counterparts.

I like how you see it that way. I can't argue with that as athletes learn from each other. These amateurs may even become professionals after competing with the professionals.
