  1. The IOC wouldn’t wear that. Their charter prohibits government interference in national Olympic committees. They suspended India and Kuwait for just that.
  2. Brisbane is exactly the sort of city that could get a lot out of the games. Indeed, might even need something like the games in order to make the next step up. No, it’s certainly not a “great” city. Not even, IMO, a particularly nice city. But it’s always been aspirational, and the SE Queensland region as a whole is sure enough pretty pleasant. An Olympics is exactly the kind of thing it needs to grow out of its mediocre, big country town reputation. it’s certainly good for Australian sport.

Probably a vaccine is the number one factor. But that alone is impossible to forecast. Russia says it already has one, other countries give various estimates between later this year or into next year before they have one. We’ll just have to see what happens and how effective it is if one does get developed. I’d guess that most of the members here would hope Tokyo goes ahead next year if it’s possible, are really
