Japan want the 2011 World Gymnastics Championships

2011 ART WCH Tokyo (JPN)

There’s been a lot of talk as late about the 2011 Artistic World Championships being moved from Tokyo. Due to be held in October, many feels that the event will be moved to somewhere such as Moscow.

The Japanese Olympic Committee have written an open letter to Bruno Grandi calling on him for support to continue to hold the World Championships in Tokyo. They highlight how important it is for Tokyo to host such a high profile event.

    It’s the radiation that they’re not mentioning that’s going to be the biggest concern. Will the athletes, spectators, coaches etc. be able to eat the food and drink the water?

    I’m rooting for Japan, but I just don’t know. Especially if the decision has to be made by next month.

    I suppose they were trying not to draw even more attention to the radiation subject in the letter. Difficult to know but I’m not feeling too confident for Japan.
