US Olympic CEO Tells AP Why She’s not Demanding Games’ Delay
DENVER (AP) — The head of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee says she's more focused on bringing solutions to the IOC than demanding it postpone this summer's Tokyo Games. There are growing calls for the games to be delayed because of the spreading coronavirus crisis. The IOC says it could need up to four more weeks to decide what to do. As CEO of the USOPC, Sarah Hirshland has endured criticism for not pushing harder for a delay. She says she's gathering information from more than 4,000 U.S. athletes about their training and health conditions. She says the IOC will hear plenty about Americans' opinions.
