Wallpaper Wednesday is a thing.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, athletes from across Canada have begun to share how they are staying connected to training by creating makeshift workout opportunities. Like Wallpaper Wednesdays, social distancing is now a thing and the move to support the more vulnerable in our society has made getting in regular workouts for some athletes an opportunity to get creative.
Athletics Canada sent out an email communication on Friday supporting the governing bodies that have decided to postpone the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to sometime in 2021 as well as the creative athletes.
Canada was the first nation to announce that they will not be sending athletes from any sports to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games, which caused Athletics Australia to follow suit and appeared to motivate International Olympic Committee, President Thomas Bach, to do postpone the games to sometime in 2021.
The autumn of 2020 and 2021 will look very different on the competition calendar to previous years as a cascade of cancellations of various regional, national and international events have had to cancel or postpone during the pandemic.
