Tokyo 2021: On or Off?

The opening ceremony for Tokyo 2021 is less than two months away, but the question still remains - is it even happening? When the games was postponed in March last year, there were a little more than a 1,000 active covid-19 cases in Japan. Today, Japan is experiencing a fourth wave that's bringing their numbers up drastically - to the tune of 70,000 active cases. The IOC remains adamant that the "Biggest Show on Earth" will go ahead as planned, but is this the right move? Olympic hurdler and President of the Malaysian Olympians Association Noraseela Khalid join us this week.
