Clare Olympian Taking Positives From Cancelled Tokyo Games

A Clare Olympian says he’s taking the positives from the postponed 2020 Games, and focusing on the extra time he will have to prepare.

Yesterday saw the International Olympic Committee make the historic announcement to cancel the planned Tokyo Olympics for this summer due to the Coronavirus, instead moving it to 2021.

It’s the first time since the second World War that the sporting event has had to be called off.


Ballyvaughan slalom canoeist Liam Jegou was the first to qualify for Team Ireland for the Tokyo Games – he says it hasn’t come as a shock.
