In Japan cleaning up after yourself is considered very important. workers help clean up their workplace at the end of the day, schoolkids help clean the school grounds, etc. from birth to death the importance of cleaning up after yourself tends to be emphasized. so i'm not surprised the athletes and fans helped out.. that is what they would have done back in japan. it is only the juxtaposition with cultures that don't do that that makes it seem odd.
