US opening Olympic training centers after shutdown

Los Angeles, Friday: The United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee will reopen two of its elite training centers this month as the organization emerges from the coronavirus shutdown, officials said on Thursday. USOPC chief executive Sarah Hirshland said the centers at Colorado Springs and Lake Placid would welcome small groups of athletes from June 26.

“We will start small, we will start slowly, and we will scale up as we feel confident in our systems and in our safety protocols in those two locations,” Hirshland told reporters.

Hirshland warned, meanwhile, that the USOPC had already drawn up a contingency plan should next year’s Tokyo Olympics, which were postponed from 2020, not take place.

“It will require additional and significant financial cuts to the organization,” Hirshland warned. - AFP
