Update on the latest in sports:

first_imgTokyo organizers say the opening ceremony will take place on July 23, 2021 — almost exactly one year after the games were due to start this year. Last week, the IOC and Japanese organizers postponed the Olympics until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.There had been talk of switching the Olympics to spring, a move that would coincide with the blooming of Japan’s famous cherry blossoms. But it would also have clashed with European soccer and North American sports leagues.The new Olympic dates conflict with the scheduled world championships in track and swimming, but those events are now expected to also be pushed back.In other Olympic news:— Tokyo Olympic Committee CEO Toshiro Muto is promising transparency in calculating the costs of reschedule the Olympic Games. Katsuhiro Miyamoto, an emeritus professor of sports economics at Kansai University, puts the costs as high as $4 billion. That would cover the price of maintaining stadiums, refitting them, paying rentals, penalties and other expenses. Japan is officially spending $12.6 billion to organize the Olympics. However, an audit bureau of the Japanese government says the costs are twice that much. All of the spending is public money except $5.6 billion from a privately funded operating budget. Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Formula One team Mercedes has helped to develop a breathing aid that could keep coronavirus patients out of intensive care and ease some pressure on Britain’s strained health service.As part of a combined effort involving seven Britain-based teams, Mercedes worked with engineers at the University College London and clinicians at University College London Hospital to adapt and improve a device that bridges the gap between an oxygen mask and the need for full ventilation.The device has been used extensively in hospitals in Italy and China.SAUNDERS-LICENSE SUSPENDEDBritish boxer has license suspended over video comments Update on the latest in sports: — The governing body of triathlon says it wanted the rescheduled Olympics to be held earlier in the year to avoid the summer heat but has accepted the new date of July 23, 2021 for the opening ceremony. All sports federations involved in the Olympics signed off on the new dates. The International Olympic Committee previously moved the marathons and race-walking events to Japan’s northern city of Sapporo and scheduled most of them to start early in the morning to avoid the heat in Tokyo.— The governing body of track and field says it supports the new dates for the Tokyo Olympics and is working with organizers in Eugene, Oregon, to move its world championships to 2022. The 2021 track worlds were scheduled to be next year from Aug. 6-15. World Athletics says it will consult with the organizers of the Commonwealth Games and the European Athletics Championships, which are scheduled to take place in 2022.F1-RED BULLRed Bull’s Marko says he proposed F1 coronavirus campVIENNA (AP) — Red Bull motorsport adviser Helmut Marko has proposed holding a training camp where Formula One drivers could get infected by the new coronavirus.

The body says a hearing will take place “at a time and venue to be confirmed as soon as possible.”Saunders, who is unbeaten in 29 fights, was close to agreeing to fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in Las Vegas before the outbreak of the pandemic.He has apologized for his remarks and says he’ll be making a donation of 25,000 pounds ($30,750) to a domestic abuse charity.,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 That idea was rejected by the team. Marko has told Austrian public broadcaster ORF he wanted to gather drivers while the F1 season is suspended.Marko suggested it would be good for Red Bull’s drivers to be infected now so they could recover in time for scheduled races later in the year.Marko said the idea “was not accepted positively” within Red Bull and was abandoned.VIRUS OUTBREAK-F1-MERCEDESMercedes F1 team helps to develop breathing aid in pandemic March 30, 2020last_img read more
