Vocablet of the Day: Convene

This year, the Olympic Games fall during the month of Ramadan, when many Muslims fast during the day.  What does this mean for Muslim athletes?

With athletes of all cultures and beliefs participating in the Olympics, the issue of Ramadan coinciding with the Games is important enough to call together a committee specifically to discuss it.

I have to wonder why the International Olympics Committee didn’t convene a council about  this problem in the months before the Games began.  Still, it’s good that a group was convened to talk about this important problem.

The convene-Muslim Athletes Vocablet highlights the unfortunate scheduling problem of Ramadan and the Olympics occurring at the same time, and what is being done about it.

How do you think Olympic officials should handle this?  Is convening a committee enough?
