General relief for athletes after the postponement of the Games


Some of the athletes who have already spoken about the postponement of the Games

The general sentiment of Spanish athletes has been one of relief and a tremendous weight lifted from them when the IOC announced on Tuesday that the Tokyo Olympics will take place in 2021 with a date yet to be confirmed due to the consequences of the coronavirus.

The requests had multiplied and almost all federations had protested against the Olympic event being held as planned due to the enormous difficulty of athletes to train with a certain normality and arrive in conditions in Tokyo. Finally sanity has been imposed and on the proposal of the Organizing Committee the body that Thomas Bach directs has yielded and has given the great news of the day.

Athletes' Reflections

As we mentioned the reactions of those involved were immediate. As far as we are concerned, many athletes have expressed their agreement and their discharge of anguish at the difficult scenario before them.
