Default Is anyone else really bummed about the 2020 Olympics possibly not happening

I usually don't watch any sports other than Rugby and American Football. However I love the Olympics, and I am finding myself quite sad that they will most likely be cancelled due to the Corona Virus pandemic. I understand why an event like that should be cancelled at a time like this, and I think it is very good that they are putting the health of the Athletes, support workers, and audience members first. I just hope it doesn't take too long for the world to get back to normal after all this.

Its too early to say if the Olympics will be cancelled. As of now, the IOC announcement states that the Olympics have been postponed until further notice so I am being hopeful that they won't be cancelled.

However, given that Japan's head of Olympics has gotten the Coronavirus, things don't look promising. This is very sad news for Japan given that the the Last time the Olympics were announcement to take place in the Nation, WW2 had broken out shortly after and well... The Olympics had to take a back seat during that mess.

Not really bummed out, but it's generally sad that everything is getting cancelled. However, as for the Olympics, I don't really care.

Not one bit.

The gymnastics and paralympics were the only things I ever have a fraction of a toss about.

I'm honestly more bummed that the Eurovision Song Contest was cancelled.

One of the reasons I cancelled to Japan was because I didn't really trust the Japanese government to be honest about what was going on. They have BILLIONS invested in the Olympics and they need to look under control. More than one ex-pat video said they weren't testing.

Your original comment did make sense

Team Canada will not be participating in the Olympics this year due to COVID concerns.

As much as I feel for Japan on this, it's the right thing to do.
