On this week’s Quest for Gold:
The Tokyo Olympic Games have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s unclear when they will be played, but organizers say it will happen by the summer of 2021 at the latest.
WGN’s Ryan Burrow spoke with USA Volleyball player Dave Wieczorek (Chicago), Judoka Nefeli Papadakis (Gurnee), and Greco Roman Wrestler Joe Rau (Chicago) about the decision, what it means for them, and how they’ve been dealing with the current “stay at home” orders.
We’ll return Quest for Gold when we hear more about future plans for the Tokyo Games.
Feel free to go back and listen to our dozens of interviews with Olympic hopefuls, reporters, broadcasters and others. Thanks for listening!
