‘Joyless Olympics’ Will Have Masked Athletes but No Spectators
The 2020 summer games begin Friday in Tokyo, Japan, with some calling the sport spectacle “the Joyless Olympics” as a lengthy list of strict rules are enforced to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. Masks are required at all times except when eating, drinking, sleeping, training or competing. Unlike past Olympics, the medal ceremony will also look a lot different. Winners will be forced to wear masks on the podium and to minimize contact, they will have to put on their own medals.
