In six months, after a one year delay, the greatest athletes in the world will gather for the Tokyo Olympics.
Here’s nice video to get you in the summer games mood:
Some of the United States’ top athletes, including gymnast Simone Biles, competitive swimmer Katie Ledecky, freestyle swimmer Caeleb Dressel, swimmer Simone Manuel and track and field competitor Noah Lyles, will be looking to make history.
Athletes have had to be resourceful with training since many competitions have been cancelled or postponed.
And with the pandemic still creating uncertainty about the summer games, three-time Olympic swimmer and gold medalist Peter Vanderkaay said that the athletes should still focus on training.
“For the athletes, you have to take the approach that it’s on. There’s no harm in going 100% toward preparation for the games. If it doesn’t happen, it’s obviously a big disappointment. But I don’t think it’s wasted effort,” he said.
Vanderkaay is hopeful the postponed summer Olympics will still take place amid the pandemic, even without spectators.
