This doesn't surprise me at all. I don't think they should have schedule them to begin with.
Canceling? Don't they start Friday? TV won't let that happen.
Sadly, the Olympics are so far beyond what they once were and now are all about money...Just the corruption within the IOC alone makes the entire thing disgusting in my opinion.
Then there’s the billions of dollars spent by otherwise bankrupt countries to build infrastructure that is rarely used ever again. All so a very few people can make a shit load of money.
I have to ask - did the athletes in question receive vaccinations LONG before their trips overseas? If not - why not?
I think all of this comes from overly wishful thinking. Everybody wants Covid to be over so bad that they think if they just get back to "normal life" it will die off on its own. Concerts, ball games and the Olympics - I feel these things were rushed into - and probably by those who stood to profit from them. My opinion.
