I’m studying for my Communications class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
I wanted to discuss something relevant to the COVID-19 virus without talking about the virus itself. I would like to get your thoughts on one of the last sporting events left unaffected by this pandemic, the Olympics. The Olympics have been going on for thousands of years and were originally held in Olympia, Greece as cited in the Wikipedia page below. These games have brought many countries from around the world together in times of peace and war.
There’s a few questions I would like to pose to the class and they are as follows:
1. Should the Olympic games be cancelled or postponed?
2. If they are not cancelled, should there be spectators allowed?
3. If they are cancelled, what kind of global impact, if any, would it make?
While you are pondering these questions think about the amount of risk present as well as the amount of preparation made for these games. The athletes that would be forced to wait another four years and potentially not have another opportunity to compete. The country of Japan that has invested billions into the erection of necessary facilities as well as all the other costs from bids to personnel. These are all very important factors to consider when making your assessment.
