There is good news from Tokyo - right in the middle of the dreary days of international sport. It was only in November that the Japanese metropolis said that mankind can look forward to the Olympic summer , so now Thomas Bach, in his role as President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), has put the whole thing into concrete terms. According to Bach, there is "no reason at all" to doubt that the Games will be held. . The Olympic Stadium in Tokyo will open on July 23rd. So nothing like going to the nearest travel agency and booking the flights to Japan !? That would be nice.

The Olympic Games are not for the faint of heart, with accidents and injuries occurring quite often during competition. Rising tensions between South Korea and their neighbors to the north is nothing new, especially during the Olympic season.

Because who can imagine the situation in the world and also the situation in Japan, currently there are also travel restrictions there due to the increasing number of cases. At the moment, the Olympics is a beautiful dream, in the current situation it is more of a nightmare. In Japan, the majority of the population no longer believes that the games, which have already been postponed by a year, no longer want the games - the associated Paralympics would also be affected.

What the New York Islanders are thankful for

  What the New York Islanders are thankful for The Islanders finally have some goaltending stability, and they have a star in Mathew Barzal, who has been in the league for three years and has led the team in points all three times. What are the Islanders most thankful for? Some goaltending stability.When Jaroslav Halak started to falter toward the end of his tenure with New York (one that had him buried in the minors at one point), there were some patchwork replacements added in Thomas Greiss and Robin Lehner (for one year), but neither was viewed as a long-term starting option.

Quite apart from that, the logistics are running out of time. How can such an event be managed in a hurry when the planning uncertainty is so huge.

The situation is different with the athletes who have worked towards this one high point of their careers for years. They deserve to see a miracle happen in the next few weeks and for the virus to discover its Olympic spirit and go away. Oh, that would be nice.
