This podcast is focused on the IOC decision to postpone the Tokyo Olympics to 2021. I believe that the IOC made the right decision. I am curious on the decision making process. It looks from afar that the IOC caved to pressure and did not want to have to make a decision.
Unfortunately, they will have lots more to decide. What will they do if Japan can not control its own COVID-19 outbreak? How will the IOC and Tokyo LOC confirm that each and every athlete from 209 countries is not contagious? Hell, the Olympic village is a human petri dish, and each Olympics some sickness goes around the village. In 1976, Brit Brendan Foster took GBR’s only athletic medal, the bronze medal at the 10,000m, after a week of the stomach flu.
This is not over…
