Olympian reacts to reports Tokyo Olympics to be cancelled
Australian Olympic canoeist Jess Fox has reacted to reports suggesting the Japanese government has concluded the coronavirus pandemic will force the cancellation of the event.
The Australian Olympic Committee is continuing its planning to ensure the Australian Olympic Team arrives in Tokyo, competes and returns home safe and COVID-free.
Fox told Deborah Knight it’s important to be adaptable.
“I’m not getting my emotions running until there’s an official statement about this.
“Obviously we work extremely hard and we want this to go ahead but I’m also looking to go towards Paris 2024.
“I’m preparing for Tokyo as is but I’m also trying to … plan for other things that happen.”

Jess Fox has recently adopted Pink, a greyhound she fostered through Greyhounds as Pets NSW.
“I think there’s a misconception that they require a lot of training, and a lot of exercise, but in fact they’re a bit more of a cat!”
She’s encouraging anyone considering welcoming a new furry friend into their family to join Greyhounds as Pets NSW’s virtual adoption day.
