Because of the flare-up of the coronavirus around the globe, numerous occasions planned to happen this year have been dropped. While not authoritatively dropped at this point, it was accounted for not long ago that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics could be in peril. As we stated, an official choice presently can’t seem to be made, however at any rate two nations will never again be partaking in it.
Both Canada and Australia have given separate proclamations in which they have reported that they won’t send their competitors to the 2020 games. As indicated by the Canadian Olympic Committee and Canadian Paralympic Committee, “While we perceive the inborn complexities around a deferment, nothing is a higher priority than the wellbeing and security of our competitors and the world network. This isn’t exclusively about competitor wellbeing — it is about general wellbeing.”
Ian Chesterman, Australian Team Chef de Mission for Tokyo includes, “It’s unmistakable the Games can’t be held in July. Our competitors have been wonderful in their uplifting disposition to preparing and getting ready, however, the pressure and vulnerability have been very trying for them.”
That being stated, the IOC is by all accounts considering deferring the games rather than through and through dropping them. The association asserts that to do so would “decimate the Olympic dreams of 11,000 competitors”, however when the games will be delayed to is not yet clear.
