    Good move. Even if the world is returned to "normal" by June/July, the athletes will have had no time to train.

    to clarify - i think this is a good decision, but not because the athletes' training schedules was disrupted.

    other than the Senate gym, I'm not sure how many gyms are open right now; mine's closed and is potentially being "re-purposed" per the email I received from the CEO

    Ryan Lochte and a bunch of other olympic hopefuls used to train over at Queens University in their new pool. then Lochte would ride over to Moe's and crush a couple of burritos.

    okay, i'll take the L on that one. I was thinking of American athletes and didn't consider other countries.

    Even the American athletes train in groups at universities or professional training facilities not their own private gyms. Plenty of athletes from other countries train in the US as well. They may have a tough time getting over here giving travel bans.

    Lots of American Olympic athletes who hold side jobs to support their athletic career. The rich NBA players and equestrians are the extreme exception, not the norm of Olympic goers.
