    I bet this is the worst olympics ever. Wrong timing.

  3. Just cancel if already

  4. Didn’t govt. Officials in Japan lie about covid cases and deaths in an attempt to hold the Olympics back in 2020?

  5. I have heard so little about the nuclear disaster on Japan for so long now. I’m sure it is still a huge danger

      @Steve Areno It’s spelled liar. Show where I have lied on any of my YouTube comments, or on any of my hundreds of videos on any of my channels.

    • @Dana Durnford & Kevin Blanch debunked we know what you are. Just stop

      @My Name There are no increases in thyroid cancers. Japan has the longest life expectancy over the entire planet, despite Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Fukushima. That’s more than 75 years of “just wait, you’ll see”. Do you always enjoy making a fool of yourself on the internet?

    • @Dana Durnford & Kevin Blanch debunked you said that radiation is not harming people. That’s a lie. Look at the babies that have to have heart surgery in Japan because of the fallout.

  6. Yea – Tokyo Olympics
    Nay- Beijing Olympics

  7. Ya…good luck with that?

    I’ve worked for Japanese companies for nearly 30 years, and wish them all the best.

    Greetings from Ireland 🇮🇪 🇯🇵

  9. Olympics? Instead, how about some nice “Gilligans Island” reruns?

      Perhaps if you learn what that pesky caps lock button is, someone might read your comment.

    Japanese are very resilient even though they wont profit in it with tourism they will still go with it to bring entertainment. Hope they make some money selling the rights for broadcast.

    Prayers to those who lost love ones and homes due to the disasters.

  15. I feel so sad for the man who lost his family. That poor guy.

  16. Nuclear fallout is there. Will our folks be exposed to that while they’re running or actively participating in the games? Response requested.

    “The reality of the Fukushima radioactive water crisis” Tokyo Olympic players will eat radioactive food? It is true?

  18. How about nuclear waste? Pour them into ocean? Thanks Japan

  19. The land is literally dead. The Japanese media is completely ignoring the critical radiation levels detected around the country. There are foreigners who live in Tokyo that reports daily radiation level and it’s WAY above the safe limit.

  20. they should just cancel it entirely
