There’s some good news today for Olympic athletes–those amazing beings who periodically make their way into our collective consciousness, whetting our collective imagination about the World of Possibility and Excellence.
Earlier this week, the International Olympic Committee and the Japanese organizers of this year’s Summer Games announced they were not going to happen until next summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Friday, they got their answer.
That means some 6,000 athletes have booked their tickets to Tokyo next summer.
The Canadian Olympic Committee has yet to officially comment on today’s announcement.
