Google's 'Olympic Charter' doodle is terrific

The image speaks for itself.

On Thursday, the day of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony, Google's doodle links to the Olympic Charter and includes this passage under the search field:

"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play."

Russia's attitude toward gay rights will continue to be a leading story line at the Winter Olympics.

Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin applauded the doodle:

"Google has once again proven itself to be a true corporate leader for equality. Alongside Olympic sponsors like AT&T, Google has made a clear and unequivocal statement that Russia’s anti-LGBT discrimination is indefensible. Now it’s time for each and every remaining Olympic sponsor to follow their lead. The clock is ticking, and the world is watching."

Well done, Google.
