3 reasons why Japan gave up the Sakura Olympics, the heavy snow weather is also a worry
Cherry blossoms in the snow.The International Olympic Committee announced last night that the Tokyo Olympics will be antiques from July 23 to August 8, 2021.Before this, a member of the International Olympic Committee had proposed the “Sakura Olympics” proposal.The International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee also discussed the Spring Olympics, but eventually gave up due to factors such as epidemic control, qualifying time, weather, sponsors and TV broadcasts.After confirming the extension of the Tokyo Olympics, the new time has become the focus of outside attention.There have been three plans for the new date, which are November 2020, spring 2021 and summer 2021.In view of the global spread of the epidemic, the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Olympic Committee have not considered holding it in 2020.Subsequently, the Japanese side proposed a one-year extension of the merger and received the support of the International Olympic Committee.The chairman of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee Mori Mori introduced last night that the Japanese government, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Olympic Committee agreed that the introduction of the “Sakura Olympics” into the summer did not pass.Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said that the reason why he advances to summer is to prepare a safe Olympic Games for athletes and spectators.Unlike the postponement to the spring index, hosting the Olympic Games in the summer can set aside extra time to ensure effective control of the epidemic.By then, the epidemic will be brought under control, and the Tokyo Olympics will surely become the focus of global attention.Sakura put on a “snow coat”.In addition, after the determination of the Tokyo Olympics in advance, 33 Olympic events have been affected, and the restart time of the qualifier is to be determined.From the Olympic Games to the summer, enough time is left for the Olympic Qualifications.Rich Beatty, president of the Summer Olympics International Single Sports Federation, said 33 sports associations voted anonymously yesterday and agreed to the Tokyo Olympics until next summer.Last night, the ITTF indicated that it would adjust the timing of the Olympic Qualifying Tournament, which is expected to be completed by the end of April 2021.Third, if the Tokyo Olympics is postponed to the spring, it will inevitably conflict with NBA, European football and other professional events.Rich Beatty said that if placed in the spring, there will be at least 6 to 7 professional events that will not allow their athletes to participate in the Olympics.In addition, the spring Olympics also make it difficult to coordinate the interests of TV broadcasts and sponsors, and summer is the only option.At the same time, there is a weather problem in the spring games of the Olympic Games, and even saves a lot of heatstroke prevention and cooling costs. However, some objects such as triathlon, kayaking, beach volleyball and other objects will be affected, and the health of athletes is difficult to guarantee.In addition, heavy snow fell in the Kanto region of Japan yesterday, the thickness of snow in downtown Tokyo reached 1 cm, and the maximum temperature was only 11 ° C.According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, it was the first time since 1969 that it had snowed after the cherry blossoms opened.If we catch up with the weather again next spring, it is obviously not suitable for hosting games like the Olympic Games.Sauna, Ye Wang Sun Haiguang Editor Wang Chunqiu proofreading Chen Diyan
