    Mm...Hybrid solution: no stadium crowds, just athletes, everyone has a TV. Cheer from the convenience of your homes. Let the athletes perform.

    It is not a binary decision.

    If the organizers make a monumental mistake with real-world consequences, this Olympics will be known as the Coronavirus Olympics.

    Hopefully, the data in Japan improves and containment measures there hold firm.

    Should they postpone it definitely next year, I wonder if they would retain the original event title using Tokyo 2020 instead of Tokyo 2021 to put it more accurately. Personally, I would choose Tokyo 2020 to commemorate and honor all the COVIDfighters who risked and even gave up their lives in service to humanity.

    I called it. And Japan's PM Abe pretty much said the same thing.

    Now the hope is that we've gotten past the worst of this virus by summer this year, so that qualifiers for different disciplines can take place.

    Good question with regards to naming, though: what happens to the Tokyo 2020 nomenclature and merchandise? Will they choose to rebrand it as Tokyo 2021 or will they keep it as a rememberance of what we lost (lives, money, events, etc)?
