World Athletics takes Olympics health fears ‘seriously’
We are very empathetic to the need to be fully recognizing that communities around the world are inevitably nervous about many things related to COVID-19 and look. You know we are all family people, you know we have children, we have grandchildren, we have elderly and sometimes vulnerable relatives.
So I understand this. I completely understand this. What I would say, though, as president of world athletics, as respectfully as i can, is that we take those concerns very seriously. The COVID-19 protocols, particularly that world athletics, have developed over the last year and a half by our health and science teams, who are extremely good at this, have consistently helped deliver events in a safe and secure environment.
