Tokyo’s Olympic flame burns at last after subdued ceremony

TOKYO — The 2020 Tokyo Games kicked off on Friday with virtually no spectators, a reduced contingent of athletes, and subdued performances to acknowledge the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which delayed the Olympics by a year. The opening ceremony included a moment of silence for the 4 million people who have died in the pandemic.

A bit rich for 2 Greeks to comment about the “extreme heat ” of the Tokyo Olympics, The Athens Olympics of 2004 were the hottest ever. They were held in August, average temperature 29.4C/84.9F. Were Mr Mercouris’ family on the 2004 Organising Committee as well ! I think we should be told !

As regards the Tokyo fiasco, the estimated projected loss for Olympics held without any spectators is $23bn. This does not include postponement costs for 2020.

Brisbane will be cancelled. LA 2028 will be the last Olympics. Thank God for that.

Sports are wonderful and joyful and bring people together in friendship and can and should promote a healthy lifestyle. The people running it at present, the IOC, are against all of these things and have been bought by the usual suspects. Along with this they actively promote and support all the bogus SarsCovid2 fear-mongering and over reacting and have made this a ‘dead’ Olympics without people, which is completely against the whole idea of the Olympics to start with. We obviously need a new ‘Peoples Olympics’ without Coca-Cola, Alibaba, Atos, Bridgestone, Dow, GE, Intel, Omega, Panasonic, Procter & Gamble, Samsung,… Read more »

The US just uses the Olympics as an attention distractor while it plots coup d’etats and military attacks. Failing that, it falls back on an opportunity for sanctions.
