Is this Tokyo 2020 Olympics biggest mistake?


In 2 years, the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games will take place and — the entire city is going to fry! That’s right — the 1964 Summer Games were held in October to avoid the heat of Japanese summer and typhoon season. Did the committee make a mistake scheduling the 2020 Games in the middle of Japanese summer? What do you think? How can we avoid thousands of people from being dehydrated and suffering from heat stroke? Hotels will be packed, travelers spending the day away from their rooms as they have to travel distances to get to venues. Not only will the Olympics crossover with the summer vacation crowd, the world press will be here, the athletes and international leaders. I have a feeling we will be okay but this is more of a challenge than anyone realizes and I’ll tell you why.
