Should The Olympics Go Ahead?

The Tokyo Olympics 2020 is due to begin tomorrow despite the majority of Japan's citizens opposing it. As sponsors and athletes withdraw due to the pandemic, we look at whether going ahead with the games is a good idea. First, we hear from a sports journalist about the lead-up to the Tokyo Games and how they’ve been perceived. Then, we discuss if the Olympics are worth having in the first place. And finally, we hear from Malaysian athletes about their journey to Tokyo.
