Tokyo Olympics an opportunity to bring world together: LA 2028 chief


Los Angeles Olympics chairman Casey Wasserman said that Tokyo Olympics has the opportunity to bring the world together in a “truly special, unique way”. All the sports and events has been postponed amid the pandemic situation. The 2020 Olympics became the first ever to be postponed.

“I do think, if there is some medical successes to be had between now and 2021 and the Olympics go off in Tokyo, I actually think it has the opportunity to bring the world together in a truly special, unique way,” he said on The Bill Simmons Podcast.

“When you get lost in, whether the trouble cities have or the commercialisation or all the things that happen around a Games and you get back to sort of at its root what it is, I think it has a true opportunity,” he added.

The restrictions were imposed in most of the countries around the world. Coronavirus Cases are increasing day by day. Due to the restrictions many sports events and tournaments has been postponed or cancelled.

The Tokyo Olympics has been pushed by a year by the Japanese government and the International Olympic Committee in a joint statement.

A number of global health experts have expressed their doubts if the pandemic situation will improve and the situation get in control so the games will restart. Postponed Games are scheduled to be held from from July 23 to August 8, 2021.
