    The U.K. is just about to be ‘shut down’ and many other countries are ahead of us (the rest will follow in time) so there will be and has been little chance for competitors to finish their preparations. In terms of re-spreading the virus gathering people from all over the Globe together makes zero sense and international air travel is heavily responsible for the spread of this virus too.

    Personally I’m rather annoyed at the stupidity and selfishness of others who, despite well qualified advice not to, have continued to socially gather together so providing multiple pathways for the spread of infection. IMHO Japan and the IOC should have acted long ago and simply put the Olympics back a year or two, it’s a unpalatable decision but that’s life.
