I just think the way the Olympics are currently run is a huge waste of money and resources and also puts a HUGE strain on the people of the host city. In the US a lot of cities voted against lobbying for the Olympics.

Like i said further down in my post, I think we should build a few permanent homes for the winter and summer Olympics and rotate that. That way the facilities will continue to be used and kept up and the Olympic tradition can still continue.

My opinion has nothing to do with the current virus outbreak and cancelling this years Olympics, I just think as a whole the IOC has shown in the past how corrupt they are and it would be a good way to remove the greed from that organization while continuing the Olympics the way they were meant, for the worlds best athletes to compete against each other in hopes that they come out on top.
