Two-time world champion in swimming Eugene Rylov shared his opinion about possible problems with holding the Olympics in Tokyo in 2021 due to coronavirus.
“I have heard various conversations about the Olympics next year. Of course, all this has occurred to me, especially considering the losses incurred by Tokyo 2020 as an organizer. But now nothing is known, even it is unclear when the quarantine will end.
There will be no Olympics next year – Yes, I will be upset, but there is nothing I can do about it. It is clear that the plans were different, but they will have to change depending on how it will be there.
I’m not afraid to go out to train and to call on the database if you open them in the near future. The most common precautions, if they are followed, if everything is well organized and if all the guys follow them, they will help protect themselves from the coronavirus,” Rylov said.
