"About over what else because we just so headstrong and that it's happening now. NBC Sports welcomes you to make four of the U. S Olympic swimming truck. Fraser and Lilly King are just two of the many headstrong athletes showcased on NBC this month at the trials for prominent Olympic sports like track and field, swimming and gymnastics. It's business as usual in a very unusual time. Media reporter John Iran of the sports Business Journal. Says the skeptical narrative has some merit as to why NBC and the International Olympic Committee are pushing ahead. This is about money, or Rand says two plus weeks of live global sports in Tokyo, bring in a ton of advertising money and help NBC's streaming service in the hyper competitive streaming market. And with the IOC taking in a reported one billion in rights fees from NBC and other networks around the globe, Iran says This does seem to be the fat cats getting fatter. But he says it's important to remember where the bulk of the IOC money goes to National Olympic committees that use it to prop up often underfunded sports if they don't play these games. There are unintended consequences with sports that like archery, water polo that aren't going to get the funding and really are almost going to cease to exist in many countries, including America. Another reason to push on is both obvious and forgotten, says former TV producer Jim Bell. The athletes, I think, are the one piece that often get overshadowed. And a lot of the hand wringing about money or corporate sponsorship. Bell work 12 Olympics for NBC, four of them as executive producer for games coverage. I try to remind myself and anybody I talk, too. Let's not forget the athletes. This is their one chance they're competing in these sports that Outside of the Olympics. Do not get much attention. In fact, 74% of all summer Olympians compete just once, making US distance.

Offer the to organize together save olympic and paralympic games for everybody but in a survey released in japan this week more than eighty percent of respondents said the event ought to be delayed or cancelled entirely. Much of the country remains under a state of emergency. During a wave of infections on the whole japan has avoided the worst of the pandemic so far it's recorded fewer than twelve thousand total deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. Thanks in part to some stringent border controls that have been in place since last spring. Never snyder is the economist. Tokyo bureau chief but over. Two thirds of those catalyses have come this year in twenty twenty one. The countries in the midst of what. They're calling a fourth wave fueled by more infectious strains particularly the be one seven i discovered in britain and some regional health systems have been under real strain in recent weeks. What about vaccinations. How are they going in a word slowly. Less than two percent of japan's population has been fully vaccinated. that's the lowest rate amongst the thirty seven members of the oecd club of mostly rich countries. And what's most striking is the source of the problem. It's neither supply. The european union has authorized the export of more than fifty million doses to japan. Nor is the problem really demand instead. It's really logistical snafus. And what someone's as an overabundance of bureaucratic caution

The italian olympic team put a transgender person on their paralympic team. And unfortunately that's the big question. Valentina faces right. Now you're also saying the part of the story that is a key point to make is the sheer number of athletes headed to tokyo. What does this say about the cultural moment that we're in just the number of out athletes that we've known of publicly out at a summer games ever since two thousand eight has more than doubled every four years. They were fifty six in rio in two thousand sixteen. We are extremely confident. There will be over a hundred We're gonna have our first out wrestler and the sheer number.

And you know what are the things we do it out sports as we track them as a team. As though all the lgbtq athletes were a nation themselves and it's kind of fun to to track their medal count as they go forward one less thing before i let you go. The the international olympic committee issued guidelines back in twenty fifteen that say a transgender athlete can compete in women's sports as long as their testosterone levels do not exceed a certain limit they they've been considering changing the guidelines in recent years but but can't agree on what to do. Do you think this will be revisited again. After the tokyo games absolutely it will and from what. I'm told from from trans women the levels at they're considering changing too they they could have long term health effects on trans women. We don't really know everything. We should about the health effects of transitioning right now but at the same time the level that they want the lower it to is a level that most of them are already at anyway. So it's going to be important to balance how you regulate competitive advantages but also long term health of these athletes.

Iran Executes Wrestler Accused of Murder After He Took Part in 2018 Protests
"For his life to be spared. 27 year old Naveed of Curry had been convicted for the killing of a security guard during anti government protests in 2018. Mr Curry said he'd been tortured. Into making a confession. Among those who called for the Iranian of thought is to show mercy where President Trump on the International Olympic Committee, which says it's shocked. By the execution. Tara. Separate FA is the researcher on Iran for human rights. What she's been telling me more about Navid of Curry and his standing is arrested in Iran. Naveed Afghan, participated in several national competitions and had run up position and the adolescence and youth national championship in Iran. Few years back, and was he taking part in anti government protests in 2018? So there have been several rounds of protests over the past 2 2.5 years in Iran. The protest that Naveed was prosecuted for took place in summer of 2018 in several cities, including in Shiraz, where he lived. So how did he come to be accused of stabbing to death? His security guards and so, according to documents Reviewed on DH news articles have been published about the case on the evening off one of the days that the protest was ongoing. Mr Torre Common who initially was reported as a security officer, but later was introduced as just an employee off the water Waste management company was stabbed to death close to his home. Naveed and his brothers were arrested about a month later. Naveed in one of his brother was also been implicated. And in village murder, were arrested in September of 2018, according to hand written letter by Naveed and that has been published, He experienced severe torture into different detention centers where he was detained. In issue Ross. He was facing dozens of charges in ST separate cases, but the criminal court sentenced him to death in October of last year. 2019 the evidence used against him was mostly confessions. Of him, his brother and a friend, And they all alleged that those confessions were obtained under torture. And in April off this year, the Supreme Court uphold the death sentence and quickly brushed over the serious allegations of torture and failed to investigate that, so there were no independent witnesses who Tied, Mr AFC hurried to the scene of the stabbing a cz faras, you know, according to authorities and footage is that been released? There's footage from one security camera. It is unclear if if the person in the video is exactly Naveed, and if that proves anything, anything beyond reasonable doubt, why do you think that the Iranian authorities decided to make an example off him? If you like on DH to execute him, even though there was this into A national outcry. I think that the rush nature off this sentence because Iranian authorities disregarded the procedural rules that they need to abide by and when executing someone shows that it had a political motive behind it, And I would say it's probably an attempt to defy the international and domestic outcry against the death penalty. So was there a campaign inside Iran to have him sped? Since July of this year, there has been an ongoing campaign. Online, mostly with the hashtag don't execute against the death sentence that have been issued in relation to the protest that have happened over the past two years. And it is a growing a domestic movement, and many people also try to raise awareness and work in different capacities to save Naveed is life arranging from people who were working on convincing the Supreme Court for a retrial to the ones who were hoping for.

"The postponed Tokyo Olympics hit the year to go mark again, but many Japanese say they should be canceled by Stephen Wade of the Associated Press in Tokyo. The Tokyo Olympics have hit the one year to go mark again, but few are in a mood to celebrate. Tokyo observed the original date a year ago, that was before the covid nineteen pandemic postponed the Olympics and pushed back the opening to July.

Hey, Remember the Olympics?
"For many sports, the Olympics is the apex of what they can achieve as athletes, and it's a chance for the world to see incredible incredible athletes out there on the world stage. My name is Julius boy, cough and I. Teach Political Science at Pacific University, Oregon. Professor boy cough has written four books about the Olympics and as it turns out. He's also a former member of the US men's Olympic soccer team. and. That is really why the Olympics have stuck around and Ben so successful. Were it not for the athletes? We wouldn't really have the Olympic Games of course the money shuffle has become a big part of that. We can talk about that later, but for athletes in lesser known sports, sake curling in the Winter Olympics or maybe equestrian or something like that in the Summer Olympics, this is their one chance to make big. Now I think we have to remember that. The Olympics the Olympic Games themselves are a value or ideal driven event. I'm Katherine Moon and I am a professor of political. Science at Wellesley College I study issues related to eastasia particularly the Koreas and I love to talk about culture and values in international politics. As much as we say, it is about pure athleticism and fairer competition. It really was an is about ideals, human, being the human spirit to strive for excellence, and to do once best, and to be proud to be wist others who are excellent in their fields. And I think that's what drives people to go to the Olympics and to watch the Olympics. It's changed my life completely. Cultures and values together. Research big. So. It's July and we were supposed to start watching the summer Olympics in about a week, so what the heck happened! Yeah. The Olympics got corona virus and. They had to push back for a year. When you look back at that moment, there were calls to cancel the Olympics. There were calls to postpone the Olympics and the members of the International Olympic Committee seemed determined to press ahead with the games this at a time when other sports were shutting down, world soccer was shutting down various sports leagues around the world, and yet the International Olympic Committee felt like they needed to press ahead and the real reason why the. International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success. What's at stake for Japan as the situation plays out. Well Japan has plunged a lot of money and prestige and human capital into making the Games happen if we think back to when they were originally bidding on the Olympics, they said that the entire escapade would cost seven point three billion dollars, but by the time this summer rolled around, they had spent some twenty eight billion dollars, according to an audit by the Japanese government, and so that's four times what they had originally planned postponing means adding anywhere from two to six billion dollars. Those are the best guesses that we have now. So what's at stake for Japan is they've already spent way more money than they expected and now they might not even get the Olympics to actually

"I'll be the first to admit that I am not a huge sports fan. I don't follow the NBA and I tend to wander away from the TV during Football Games, but I do love to watch the Olympics, and that's because it's actually super cool to see whole nations rallying behind one team. It becomes something more than a game. It becomes this uniting cultural moment. It's like a global holiday, and so with a little bit of extra couch time on my hands I was very ready to tune into this summer's Tokyo Olympics the perfect distraction. But the July twenty twenty Olympic. Games aren't going to be held this month. They've been postponed by a full year. This decision wasn't made lightly. And in fact, Japan is working around the clock to try to figure out how to keep their games. Despite a global pandemic, it's part of a long story for decades. Just like their athletes. Countries have competed fiercely to host the Games despite mounting evidence that they usually represent a significant financial loss, and that made us ask why, if not money, what's the games offer that so special and worth so much effort I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today, the Olympics soft power and the deep running politics of the World Games.

International Olympic Committee finally acted was because Canada basically said they were going to do a de facto boycott. If the Games were held in twenty twenty, they were soon followed by. The National Olympic Committees from Australia Portugal Germany, and when that all happened the International Olympic Committee had no choice but to postpone, and that's exactly what they did so now. They're slated for July twenty twenty one. To move has finally been confirmed. The signs are all over Tokyo symbols of what was supposed to be the Japanese revival. A comeback crushed at least for now. We're talking about it. Doesn't it seven years in the making millions of dollars. Two hundred countries at eleven thousand athletes. You can't just pick another date on the calendar. The Olympic Games have only been canceled three times. The first time was in nineteen sixteen during World War One. The second and third time we're in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty and nineteen, forty, four, due to World War Two. It's still unclear whether the twenty twenty games will become forth historic cancellation. The current plan is to begin them on July Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty one. But. Many experts are skeptical of this time line, arguing that there is no guarantee that the corona virus will be fully under control in a year. Still the struggle to preserve the twenty twenty games shows just how invested host countries become an success.

Dancing is a sport at the modern Olympics is part of a drive by the organization to appeal to a new generation of sports fans. The question is, do you consider break dancing sport? And if this gets through what's next, well, it's, it's also apparently rock, climbing wall-climbing. Yup. And surfing, which I have one hundred percent is break-dancing still popular. Like, are they trying to get a new generation of fans into the Olympics who are alive in the nineteen eighties and had parachute, pants, absolutely anytime. There's dancing in a new and different way, people love it. I mean, there's movies, new indifferent. That's my question.

That's a performance with scores given generates controversy, right? Generate stand tryst. I am all here for the Russian judge not giving the American competitor credit for his backspin to worm combo. I'm therefore it, I'm not a purist, though, on is this a real sport and doesn't need to be in the Olympics, because quite frankly, a lot of the sports in the Olympics are a little weird and sort of made up. And, you know, like steeplechase in the civility run in like you jump over over something or. You run a marathon events stopping do target practice in the Winter Olympics. Then that's Nordic right? That's like a thing. Like, is that really a sport? He just kind of taping a bunch of other things together in calling it an event. So if this is what they think is going to be popular. I just I was my fan of the idea of ballroom, dancing. I know. That's sounds hokey. Sure. And I'm telling you, my mom dancing with the stars legs. Just when I read it, I was like this feels like what sixty year olds think will make the Olympics popular 'cause I on aware of the resurgence in break dancing? I guess I didn't know it came back. It will appeal to a younger generation, I don't know because only a younger generation can actually do it. There aren't going to be forty year old break dancers at the Olympics. There might be you.
