I do feel sorry for the organisers of the Tokyo Olympics. They have spent billions on putting on the games and because of Covid it looks at best it's going to be a scaled down event as I fear North Korea won't be the first to withdraw from the competition.

I would assume you are correct. I would think many nations will continue to pull out of the games. It’s only 3 and a half months away so obviously it’s too soon for everyone to participate the way they would like. Very sad to see but I do understand the caution right now.

Im always surprised N Korea put forward a team as Id defect If i were in it!!

I feel sorry for any athlete / competitor as they train hard for 4 years and its all a bit in limbo - when i think back to how exciting London 2012 was and the wonderful atmospheres inside stadiums and venues and they wont have that .
