Opinion: Countries are tired of the IOC's dawdling, so they're taking Olympics decision into their own hands

Canada and Australia are several countries taking a stand amid COVID-19 concerns at the Olympics. What's taking IOC so long to announce a move?

Nancy Armour is a bitter person that can only write negative stories about a subject. The fact is that at this point no one knows the depth of this virus outbreak and how long it will last. These athletes do not want the Olympics canceled at this time. The only people clamoring for a decision are reporters and politicians. Get a grip Nancy, live will go on.

Please, quit your nonsense about the President failing to respond. He wanted to close the borders in January and you commies called him a racist for it.
