    With the ceremonial handing over of the Olympic torch from Greece to Japan, one could be forgiven for thinking that the games will go ahead.
    Imo there is zero chance of this happening in 2020. Maybe it will be posponed, deferred or just outright cancelled altogether, who knows.
    But I for one dont see it happening, for lots of reasons.
    Qualifying competitions not complete yet in a lot of sports.
    A lot of team sports can't train together.
    To much disruption to individual athletes preparation world wide..
    Most countries won't have there qualifying trials completed.
    And this is before we even get into travel restrictions etc..

    Anyone else share my view

    Ps I know it's not life or death if its cancelled, but it does have a huge impact economically world wide, and I'm sure on mental health as well.
