The Olympics are not that important in the scheme of things. The Japanese understand this.
I mean this could be said for virtually any organized sports. And yet i still think its wrong, I happen to think that the Olympis is extremely important in the scheme of things. Can you think of any international event that captures the imagination of the whole world? The only thing that comes close is the World Cup? I really hope the Olympics happen this year -- could they not postpone to early Fall (like the Doha championships). I can't imagine COVID will be much of a concern by then.
