Tokyo Olympics Postponed to 2021
It is sad that this year we aren't going to be able to enjoy the Olympic games in Tokyo. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the Olympics have been postponed until July 2021.
The summer Olympic games in Tokyo will be postponed until July 23rd 2021 and run through August 8th. The Paralympics will follow from August 24th to September 5th 2021. We have to wait a full year to be able to watch the games.
I have no ides what kind of economic impact this may have on Tokyo. I have heard it can be incredible expensive to set up the Olympic Village and getting the venues set up so the athletes have everything to compete. Hopefully postponing it a year won't be too big of a burden.
I am sure that this is for the best. It will prevent the spread of the virus, make sure all the athletes stay healthy and safe and ensure that people can actually attend the games. It is one of the things on my bucket list to go and see the Olympic games. The most amazing athletes from all over the world would be incredible to witness.
Without any sports going on right now due to this pandemic, I am starting to go a little stir crazy. Every single sport has been postponed, the season cancelled or being played without an audience. I can't wait to be able to turn on ESPN and have sports back.
