2020 Was a crazy year…

For the world, but also for sports.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, the 2020 Olympic dream has been change from 2020 vision to a vision for 2021.

In a statement here from the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Committee the decision was made to postpone the Olympics.

It is a difficult decision that was made in a difficult time with difficult circumstances.

Postponement can be taken a few ways.

  1. Heartbreak. All of the athletes around the world have been looking forward to summer 2020 for a long time now. It was what they were waiting for, preparing for and planning for. RETIREMENT?
  2. It allows for more. More growth physically and mentally. More time spent training and honing in on skills. More time to mentally prepare. More rehabilitation in some cases.
  3. It shows acknowledgment of the greater good. By postponing the olympics, it allows for time to come to let COVID-19 calm down and people to heal.

These and many other things can be taken from the news in these chaotic times.

How did you feel about the postponement?

How do you feel now?

It is now 2021.

An Olympic year.

January. A new start.

Some may have the same goals, some may have changed. However, for my Olympic Hopefuls, the goal has stayed the same, and they look forward to this year with eagerness for what is to come.
