  1. I also wonder how many athletes are actually training for the Games, qualified and eventually attend the Games? Does IOC expect a much lower number of athletes taking part compared to normal (10K+ if not wrong)? For countries devastated by the pandemic, particularly the developing countries, I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of their athletes stopped training since last year due to various lockdown and resources available to them
  2. “We are in no mood to celebrate an event filled with fear and anxiety,” Is it morally acceptable for the world to impose on Japan to host the Games when 80%of the Japanese are not in the mood to host it anymore?
  3. Just throwing it out there - is it plausible at all to have Tokyo 2024, Paris 2028 and LA 2032?
  4. Can't help to think of the idea of a permanent Olympic venue again e.g an Olympic island in Greece.
  5. The should cancel Tokyo this year and let them have 2032. Sorry Brisbane can wait till 2036 if it still wants it.
  6. I wonder whether any potential future bid cities will look at what Tokyo has been through and think it’s not worth taking the risk to host the Olympics anymore? Unless there is an insurance policy in some way that guarantees the host city would not incur massive financial loss in case of another pandemic cancellation?
  7. Perhaps I used the word too strongly here. I do care about the Olympics but I feel with the current climate, there are bigger things to worry about like in the UK where I am now - it is a shame that we won't be able to fully the Games as it is. I don't think one can use the argument that having the Games can be a good distraction, when lots of people up and down the country (and the world) are still struggling with the ongoing pandemic/ economy, mental well-being effects of recovery from lockdowns. I guess I just want Tokyo to have the full experience. The athletes and the world to have
  8. Then pcancel the 2032 bid, thanks Brisbane and others for their interest and give Tokyo 2032.
  9. I am sure IOC can push Brisbane to 2036 as a goodwill gesture to Tokyo given how much they have lost trying to host 2020
  10. I really think the Tokyo Games should be cancelled, or at least postponed to 2032 as some reported to be an option. First, Covid situation is still uncertain in Japan which might rise again in the coming months. Safety concerns for the athletes, media and locals. Secondly, it is not going to feel the same without international supporters and socially distances spectators. Thirdly, I suspect for many athletes, they won't be able to train in their 100% capacity due to the various lockdowns which is also unfair to athletes from countries where lockdown restrictions are more harsh.
  11. Why can't they use the drones live in the stadium? That will be quite cool. Surprised they allow pre-recorded version of the ring.
  12. Geez is there no other song in the world? They always have to truck out this old cliche song at every ceremony like this...... bored of it!
