    The International Olympic Committee (IOC), has confirmed that the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo have been postponed for a year after IOC president Thomas Bach agreed to a request from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

    Disappointing for sports nuts like me.. but inevitable given this crisis.

    Heaven knows if we'll even have baseball at this rate.

    I was very happy to see they postponed the Olympics. It would be insane, stupid and selfish to hold them with this virus problem.

    I'll miss that highly competetive, rugged sport of "curling".

    Yes, it's definitely good to relax with a nice match of curling after being overstimulated by watching paint dry.
