Pound uncertain 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games will go ahead due to COVID-19 surge



Canadian IOC member Dick Pound has stated that he is uncertain that the postponed 2021 Olympic Games will go ahead due to the ongoing surge of COVID-19 across areas of Japan. The event was postponed due the coronavirus pandemic last summer and was re-scheduled to take place from July 23 through August 8 this year.

“I can’t be certain because the ongoing elephant in the room would be the surges in the virus,” stated Pound in an interview with BBC Sport.
