Tokyo Olympics: Climate change could make the 2020 games a disaster.
There’s a lot hinging on Tokyo 2020. The 2024 Olympics will be held in Paris, which experienced its highest temperature ever recorded this summer at 108.7 degrees Fahrenheit. The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar in winter, not summer. (In Qatari summers, Paris’ hottest day ever is just another day.) Just earlier this week at the track and field biennial world championships in Qatar, while air-conditioned stadiums mitigated conditions, female runners were carried away on stretchers after running the marathon outdoors.

“If Tokyo fails to handle the heat, cities could start to say, ‘We don’t want to have the Olympics,’ ” Yokohari said. “Tokyo should realize that it sits on a critical point of the future of the Olympics. Next year Tokyo will show whether the Olympics can be done in a very hot climate, or give the simple answer that it’s impossible.”

Meet Elizabeth Swaney, the American skier who scammed her way to the Olympics
"Here's how a very average skier used her brains and determination to achieve an Olympic dream"
Her qualifying runs were so mind-numbingly average that it was almost captivating -- as were the event announcers' attempts at taking her seriously.

"Ultimately, she was able to achieve the real American (or Hungarian?) dream: Scamming the system to achieve your life goals while doing the absolute bare minimum to get there.
Not all heroes wear medals."
