Dick Pound: Tokyo Olympics could be cancelled

Recommended Posts

getting on Twitter and seeing "Dick Pound" trending, had to click to see what that's about.

Dick Pound, turns out, is a big deal within the International Olympic Committee, and he is saying that the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo are still good to go, but could also be cancelled if the COVID-19 epidemic/pandemic isn't brought under control soon...

You could say Dick Pound is weighing his words very carefully.

 

IOC member estimates there's a three-month window to cancel Olympics in wake of coronavirus

"Dick Pound, the longest serving member of the IOC..."

the dude has a lot going for him. Is his secretary's name Arlotta Fagina?

As long as the right people get paid, there's no way the Tokyo Olympics will be canceled.

Tokyo Marathon is this weekend.  it was cancelled except for the 200 or 300 elite runners.  so 30,000+ recreational runners aren't gonna participate.
