However, many are calling to "Make the games global" to accommodate for the pandemic's challenges.
Simon Burton of The Guardian said "Spread events and athletes around the world, in every time zone, creating an Olympic marathon of 24-hour-a-day elite sport. Let Tokyo host as many events as it can safely handle and redistribute the remainder among the world’s greatest venues, from Wembley to Wrigley Field, and among nations unlikely to host a full Olympics, from Morocco to Moldova, Mexico to Malaysia. If Japan cannot host the Games in their entirety they should instead be celebrated in true Covid fashion, by people forced to be physically distant yet managing to feel united – a unity not of place but of purpose."
Do you think it should go ahead? What do you think of the idea that it could be a global event?
