CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: No matter what, a Japanese official says the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will go on and that's our first story this Wednesday. I'm Carl Azuz for CNN 10.
The games are still officially called the 2020 Tokyo Olympics even though they were postponed last summer because of the coronavirus pandemic. They're now set to begin on July 23rd of this year. But we've told you how there's been some doubt about that because the disease is still spreading. And Olympic organizers have said that if the 2020 games don't happen this summer, they'll be cancelled all together.
Well here's what's new. Japan's prime minister says he's determined to hold the Summer Games in Tokyo this year and the President of the nation's Olympic Organizing Committee says that will happen no matter what's going on with COVID.
This is significant because there've been reports that Japanese government officials have privately discussed cancelling the game. That government has publicly called those reports categorically untrue. If concerns about this persist though, the Chief Financial Officer of the U.S. state of Florida says the games could be held there instead. He's reportedly sent a letter saying that to the IOC. He highlighted the fact that Florida has successfully held several major sports events during the pandemic including the NCAA College Football Championship, the NBA Final, the upcoming Super Bowl and he mentioned that Disney World is open and operating safely. There are questions about that proposal as well though in terms of how the games could be moved? How much would it cost? Who would pay for it? For its part, the International Olympic Committee which is based in Switzerland has said it's committed to holding the Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo this summer.
尽管去年夏天因冠状病毒疫情而推迟，但这届奥运会的官方名称仍为2020年东京奥运会 。奥运会改期至今年7月23日开幕 。但我们报道过，由于病毒仍在蔓延，人们对此存有疑问 。奥运会组织者表示，如果2020年奥运会不能在今年夏天举行，就会被全部取消 。
下面来看最新进展 。日本首相表示，他决心今年在东京举办夏季奥运会，日本奥组委主席表示，无论冠状病毒如何发展，奥运会都将举行 。
这至关重要，因为有报道称，日本政府官员曾私下讨论取消奥运会 。日本政府公开称这些报道绝对不真实 。不过，美国佛罗里达州的首席财务官表示，如果这种担忧持续下去，奥运会可以改在佛州举行 。据报道，他曾就此致信国际奥委会 。他强调称，佛罗里达州在新冠疫情期间成功举办了几项重大体育赛事，包括NCAA大学橄榄球锦标赛、NBA总决赛、即将到来的超级碗，他还提到迪士尼世界已经开放并安全运营 。关于这项提议也存在一些问题，比如如何改变奥运会举办地？举办奥运会要花多少钱？谁来买单？总部设在瑞士的国际奥委会表示，其将致力于今年夏天在东京举办奥运会和残奥会 。
