Will be? Will not be? And if, under what conditions? The translated Olympics in Tokyo are also in danger. After all, if it weren’t for that, there would be no noise around her.
But they are serious again. The British daily The Times reported a few days ago that the Japanese government had secretly whistled the biggest sporting event in advance. Although the island cabinet has objected to this information, the possibility that the Games will not take place in the end remains on the table.
“Naturally, we are also considering the worst-case scenario from various angles,” indicated the head of the organizing committee, Yoshiro Mori.
According to The Times, there is a danger that the Olympics could become an event that will significantly expand the coronavirus. Japan has recently declared a state of emergency. “No one wants to say it first, but there is a consensus that it is too complicated,” a high-ranking source told the newspaper.
According to plan
The head of the World Olympics, the German Thomas Bach, continues to insist that the Tokyo Games will finally take place. He claims that there is no Plan B at the moment. In this spirit, he also conducted yesterday’s video interview with the representatives of the National Olympic Committees.
“He confirmed to us that the preparations are proceeding according to plan and that the path to a safe event leads through speed tests and area vaccination,” revealed the General Secretary of the Secondary School of Education, Jozef Liba.
The truth in this context also addressed the Slovak analyst of global trends Juraj Mesík, who last year was the first to predict that the Olympics will not take place on the original date. This time he is more optimistic.
“It simply came to our notice then. However, the risks still exist, so I would not put my hand in the fire yet. We can treat COVID-19 effectively today, and we also have some promising-looking vaccines available, ”he said.
“If the Japanese government decides it’s worth the risk – epidemic but also economic – then they may be able to take it. It is not unmanageable to prepare and vaccinate athletes prophylactically. If the event takes place, strict epidemiological measures will also be necessary among the audience, the number of which is likely to be significantly reduced. This optimistic scenario could theoretically be canceled by new mutations in the virus as well as a possible worsening of the situation in Tokyo – both are possible, but unlikely, “he added.
According to sports marketing expert Roman Krajniak, last year marked sport by perhaps the most of all industries. Not only financially, various bubbles and empty points of view also deprive him of his attractiveness. The consequences are already visible and more are said to be on the way. He says that we will one day look at the world of sports as something before and after coronavirus.
“Olympics will be marked by significant changes. Today, however, no one knows what. Technology allows us to do things we couldn’t even imagine a few years ago. The situation that one country will prepare all sports venues and invite 10,000 athletes to it may not be here soon, “he indicated. True, this hypothesis probably does not apply to this summer or to other Games that have already been decided.
Do 25. mark
Japan has another problem. Opinion polls do not suit athletes. According to them, up to 80 percent of the population do not currently agree with the event, which is scheduled for the turn of July and August.
“Well, it captures the current mood. But who dares to take to the streets when there is a flood outside? On the contrary, if the country managed to manage the pandemic and organize the Games, it would be a great impetus for it and the whole world, “thought Marianna Hasegawa, a Slovak woman who has lived in Japan for decades, yesterday.
Just like last year, we probably have days and weeks of speculation ahead of us. Everything should be decided definitively in early spring. Even before the lighted Olympic torch is released from Fukushima to Tokyo on March 25.
