Tokyo Olympics Just Beginning the Race to Reset Themselves
05/28/2020 6:29pm

Just two months after the unprecedented Olympic postponement, organizing committee CEO Toshiro Muto was asked Thursday about progress toward next years rescheduled Tokyo Games.If you ask, are we just around the first corner of the 400-meter race, I cannot answer that question, said Muto, speaking through an interpreter during an online news conference. But I can tell you this much. I do not feel we are late in our preparations. I do not feel we are being delayed in any way.But from listening to the limited details that Muto provided, preparations seem to be barely out of the starting blocks.A former deputy governor of the Bank of Japan, Muto has spoken cautiously ever since the coronavirus pandemic caused the postponement and says little about progress. He said not to expect much solid news until planning reaches the second phase in the fall.This includes who pays for the the delay, which is estimated in Japan at $2 billion to $6 billion, how to keep fans, staff and athletes safe from the coronavirus, and deal-making to secure the same 43 venues and the same competition schedule.Right now we dont have any details or specific items that we can talk about, he said. We all agree that in addition to heat countermeasures, we will have to have coronavirus measures.In the last week, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach and IOC member John Coates, who oversees preparations for Tokyo, have speculated more openly on how the games might be held.In interviews, Bach has suggested a possible quarantine for athletes, floated the possibility of little fan access, and has not ruled out empty stadiums.Coates, speaking last week at a News Corp Australia digital forum and reported in The Australian newspaper, was very frank.Weve got real problems because weve got athletes having to come from 206 different nations, Coates said.He ran off the numbers: 11,000 Olympic athletes, 5,000 technical officials and coaches, 20,000 media, and 60,000 volunteers.Theres a lot of people, Coates said, without even adding 4,400 Paralympic athletes and staff.Muto said October loomed and Coates said the same thing as a time when many thing will come clear in the process.October will be that point when we start the detailed discussions, Muto said.He said that excluded any decision about go or not to go on with the Olympics. Muto has always said the games are on, though Bach and Tokyo organizing committee President Yoshiro Mori agree they cannot be delayed again.Another delay will mean a cancellation.This is a huge undertaking. This is a big job, Muto said. We have to do in one year and a few months something that had taken years of actual preparations to do. So there are so many things we have to review and decide in such a short time.More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/APSports

In-Person Boston Marathon Is Canceled Amid Pandemic, Goes Virtual for 2020
05/28/2020 3:18pm

The Boston Marathon wont be run this year, Mayor Marty Walsh announced Thursday, calling it unfeasible for public health reasons as the coronavirus pandemic continues to hit Massachusetts. The race will be replaced with virtual events.Theres no way to hold the usual race format without bringing large numbers of people into close proximity, Walsh said at a news conference outside Boston City Hall.Its the first time in over 100 years that the world-famous marathon was called off, according to the CEO of the Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the race. The only other time was 1918, in the midst of the flu pandemic and World War I, when the race was turned into a military relay.The race was set for its 124th running on April 20, but had been postponed until September as the coronavirus crisis ramped up in Massachusetts. Organizers had hoped to hold it in the fall, but Walsh said Thursday that it would be unrealistic and irresponsible to hold it all this year. The Boston Athletic Association is planning a week of virtual events instead, CEO Tom Grilk said at the news conference. See more information on the virtual marathon here. Registered participants of the in-person race will be given refunds for their entry fees and be offered a chance to participate virtually, Grilk said.While we cant bring tens of thousands of people from around the world to Massachusetts for the marathon this year, we do hope to bring the spirit of the Boston Marathon to the world, and well do our best to do that, Grilik said. Reporter: THAT IS CORRECT. NOTHING HAS BEEN CANCELLED AS OF YET BUT ITu2019S STILL UNCLEAR WHETHER OR NOT THE BOSTON MARATHON WILL TAKE PLACE THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF COVID-19. OF COURSE, IN APRIL, IT WAS PUSHED OFF BECAUSE OF THE OUTBREAK. IT WAS MOVED TO SEPTEMBER 14th. NOW MANY THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH TIME TO GET THE VIRUS UNDER CONTROL AND THAT STILL MAY BE THE CASE, BUT CONCERNS DO REMAIN ABOUT THE PANDEMIC. THE RACE WILL HAVE MORE THAN 30,000 RUNNERS AND A LOT MORE SPECTATORS LINING THAT ROUTE. THAT COULD MAKE SOCIAL DISTANCING DIFFICULT FOR EVERYONE. THE RESCHEDULED MARATHON IS STILL FOUR MONTHS AWAY. AS I SAID, ITu2019S STILL A GO. HERE IS WHAT THE MAYOR OF BOSTON HAD TO SAY ABOUT IT YESTERDAY. WHEN WE ORIGINALLY MADE THE DECISION TO POSTPONE THE MARATHON IN SEPTEMBER, WE WERE HOPEFUL THE CORONAVIRUS WOULD NO LONGER BE A SIGNIFICANT PUBLIC HEALTH RISK FOR OUR RESIDENTS. WE ARE CONTINUING TO HAVE RIGHT NOW CONVERSATION WITH THE BAA ON THE BEST WAY FOR ALL OF US TO MOVE FORWARD. Reporter: NOW ON ITS WEBSITE, THE BAA SAYS THAT IT CONTINUES TO WORK WITH PUBLIC OFFICIALS ON TO WORK WITH PUBLIC OFFICIALS ON WHAT THE MARATHON WILL LOOK,videoid:1740195395808412,videolength:67735,videoprovider:mpx,alleypackscheduleunpublish:,feedremoteid:mpx1740195395808,feedthumbnailurl: data-livestreamfalse data-titleSeptember Boston Marathon in Question data-vidcid1:5:2127669 data-vidurlhttps://www.nbcboston.com/on-air/as-seen-on/september-boston-marathon-in-question/2127669/ data-isleadfalse data-catnames1813:On Air,1814:As Seen On,206944:News,705:Local data-tagnames49:BOSTON,21306:Boston Athletic Association,17615:Boston Marathon,241040:coronavirus,246083:COVID-19,21853:Mayor Marty Walsh data-customdataContentPartner:None,Source:WEBFM,SyndicationAllowed:true,mSNVideoCategories:MSN Video v4 Connector-most watched news,mSNVideoContentSupplierID:NBCLocal,mSNVideoCountry:us,subtitle:nosubtitle,uploadedByTeam:1,youtubeChannel:None data-autoplayfalseWalsh also discussed several other initiatives at his news conference, including the citys principles for reopening offices next week and a new initiative to open Bostons streets during the coronavirus crisis.Walshs office also on Thursday announced $1.75 million in emergency funding for the Boston Immigrant COVID-19 Collaborative, which brings together 11 organizations that help immigrants in the area.But the marathon announcement overshadowed it all, striking one of the citys most highly anticipated events and biggest tourism generators from the calendar. After checking with Grilk, Walsh said the economic hit to the city will be over $200 million.This is the challenge but meeting tough challenges is what the Boston Marathon is all about, Walsh said. Its incumbent on all of us to dig deep, like a marathon runner to keep its spirit alive in its virtual form. The virtual alternative race, as the Boston Athletic Association put it, can be run during the week of Sept. 7. The organization will offer a printable finish line, panel discussions and medals for participants who can show they completed the race.Reopening Boston Offices, Opening Streets to PedestriansOn the subject of Bostons offices, which are set to reopen Monday, June 1, under Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Bakers plan for reopening the state, Walsh offered a set of guidelines. They include offering mechanisms for scaling back office use if coronavirus cases flare up, having drastically different routines from before the shutdown until a vaccine or effective treatment is ready and planning for an equitable reopening.Going back to work brings risks, Walsh said.Offices reopening, even in a limited capacity as the plan calls for, should result in an increase in highway traffic and MBTA ridership. The city has also been working on plans to provide more space for pedestrians and for restaurants to create outdoor seating areas, though Walsh has said he does not expect the restaurant industry to return to 100 capacity anytime soon.He announced a Healthy Streets initiative Thursday that expands bus stops, accelerates the installation of bike lanes and finds new but as-yet unspecified ways to accommodate outdoor seating for restaurants all an effort to give pedestrians more space outside amid the pandemic.At his last news conference on Tuesday, Walsh announced the establishment of a $6 million fund to help the citys small businesses reopen safely. TheReopen Boston Fundis for Boston business with fewer than 15 employees who work in close proximity, like barbershops and hair salons.These are grants that you can use to buy PPE personal protective equipment to install safety partitions or to manage outdoor spaces thats approved for business use, Walsh said.More on the Boston Marathon&039s CancellationBoston Marathon1 hour agoWhat We Know About the Virtual Boston Marathon, After Road Races CancellationBoston Business JournalMay 26Charities Warily Eye a 2020 Without a Boston Marathon

05/28/2020 1:43am

There was no immediate announcement from the Hall of Fame about the rescheduling plan.Were definitely canceling, Colangelo told ESPN. Its going to have to be the first quarter of next year. Well meet in a couple of weeks and look at the options of how and when and where.Bryant, Garnett and Duncan all got into the Hall in their first year as finalists, as did WNBA great Tamika Catchings.

Title IX Major Factor for Colleges Looking at Sports Cuts
05/27/2020 9:21pm

Financially challenged schools considering cutting sports in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic are making difficult decisions of who gets to keep playing and who doesnt.The choices arent just about money when they involve womens sports. And while Title IX doesnt prevent womens sports from being eliminated, the federal law is a huge part of the conversations.I wouldnt say that womens sports are more at risk, said attorney Timothy J. OBrien, who is based in Maine with a practice focused on employment and college sports law. I would say that all sports in an economic downturn will be scrutinized. But it should be done in a fair and equitable manner so at the end of the day the institution is compliant with Title IX.The civil-rights law, which applies to each gender, is credited with expanding womens opportunities and participation in sports.With the shutdown of college and professional sports in March amid the pandemic, its unclear how many schools will be able to have sports on reopened campuses this fall. Some including Appalachian State, Cincinnati, East Carolina, Furman and Old Dominion have already cut non-revenue sports programs, but any move must ensure equitable treatment of remaining mens and womens athletics programs to comply with Title IX.Established in 1972, Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any education program or activity receiving federal funds, such as student financial aid. It applies to sports by ensuring men and women have equitable participation opportunities, as well as access to scholarships.While schools are facing financial hardships, Boston-based attorney Janet P. Judge said that fact doesnt nullify Title IX responsibilities.Title IX still applies, said Judge, who focuses on sports and civil rights law. Its a federal law that still applies. Its not suspended because there are financial challenges for the institutions.Schools are reviewing guidelines with college athletics facing an uncertain financial future including big-budget programs that rely on football as the revenue driver through lucrative TV deals and the ability to fund lower-profile sports. There was also the hit from the cancellation of the NCAA Tournament, which meant far less money distributed to Division I schools.OBrien, who joined Judge in co-authoring the NCAA gender equity manual, said schools are keenly aware that decisions cant be based solely on which programs cost the most money with the least return. Thats because any decision to cut sports can affect the delicate balancing act in complying with Title IX when it comes to the schools gender breakdown of athletes and sports, he said.Still, it doesnt mandate schools offer mens and womens programs that are mirror images. As an example, NCAA guidelines require Football Bowl Subdivision schools to sponsor at least 16 varsity sports with a minimum of six for men or mixed-gender teams, and eight for women.OBrien said compliance can be measured in multiple ways, including whether the overall sports programs gender breakdown is proportionate to that of the general student body.Thats really the focal point of the analysis: whats left, not what was eliminated OBrien said.Like OBrien, Judge does not believe womens programs are at more risk because it would be difficult for schools to comply with Title IX while widely cutting womens sports. So far, theyre right more mens programs 16 have been cut than womens four in Division I as of Tuesday, according to a count by The Associated Press.Old Dominion said in early April it would discontinue wrestling, saving about $1 million. The school said that decision followed a six-month outside study of its athletics program that included Title IX compliance considerations, with athletics director Camden Wood Selig saying the decision to cut a sport became even more clear with the pandemic.Later that month, Cincinnati eliminated a mens soccer program in existence since 1973.In May, Florida International dissolved its mens indoor track and field program. Akron eliminated three sports mens cross country, mens golf and womens tennis to save $4.4 million. Bowling Green followed with the shutdown of baseball to reduce the athletics departments operating budget by $2 million.Last week, Furman cut baseball and mens lacrosse, while East Carolina eliminated four sports mens and womens swimming and diving, mens and womens tennis in a plan to save $4.9 million.And Tuesday, Appalachian State cut mens soccer, mens tennis and mens indoor track and field in a plan to reduce the budget by $5 million for the 2021 fiscal year.There are other financial considerations, too.Wake Forest athletics director John Currie noted that non-revenue sports frequently have athletes on partial scholarships, meaning a team roster could have the equivalent of numerous athletes paying full tuition. So cutting a sport might reduce expenses for an athletics department yet cause a net revenue loss for a school more broadly.Its just one example, he said, of detailed evaluations any school must make while also fulfilling its Title IX requirements.Meeting that threshold is not optional, though Currie noted a harsh reality: Not every school can be everything to everybody.Allocation of resources is among the most difficult decisions that leaders have to make, and the prioritization of how theyre going to allocate those resources, Currie said. Because theres lots of great things we could do. We cant do everything, if we want to do things in an excellent fashion.Despite what people want to believe, college athletics as a whole is an enterprise with some business principles. Its not a business, because theres no business that operates a predominant number of its programs at a net loss.AP Sports Writer Eric Olson in Omaha, Nebraska, contributed to this report.Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap
