We’re all adjusting to a world without sports.
It’s all one big, giant, rain delay as we wait for a return to normalcy in our country.
Next sports venue to feel the pressure — the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Athletes all over the world are unable to train and it’s becoming a problem.
The International Olympic Committee and host country Japan are facing mounting pressure from athletes and national governing bodies after the coronavirus became a global pandemic, with more 300,000 cases worldwide.
The IOC is in the process of gathering more information from national Olympic committees about the impact the outbreak has had on training for the Games. Earlier this week USA Track & Field joined USA Swimming in calling for a postponement of the Games, which are scheduled to begin July 24. The IOC says it will make a decision within the next four weeks.
Canada and Australia have stepped up and said they will not send their athletes to Japan if the games proceed as scheduled.
A delay of the games to summer of 2021 would be beneficial to the PGA Tour and the major championships that have been delayed — The Masters and the PGA. With the compressed major schedule, the PGA Tour playoffs and the Ryder Cup, the July-August Olympics really jam things up.
Stay tuned on this one. Tough to see the games happening as scheduled.
