Are you watching the Tokyo Olympics? It’s a different viewing experience for me from past Olympics. Except when the Olympics are being played at a restaurant, I’m not glued to the television anymore; I’m now trained to view everything off my phone which means that I’m watching the Tokyo Olympics through short video clips on YouTube. How about you? Have your screen viewing habits changed too?
My boxing coach is with the U.S. National Men’s and Women’s Team right now so I’m trying to figure out how to watch the team. There are time differences that make viewing challenging. I’m also watching for news on his Instagram.
I’m not the only one. Viewership is down more than 40% according to NBC compared to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. It doesn’t help that American competitors have pulled out or been eliminated early. Still, this is a time to celebrate athletes who have trained an extra year for this momentous event. Let’s celebrate the Tokyo Olympics despite the pall the pandemic has cast. I invite you to take a look at my round-up of activities and books.
