Retreat from Olympics (2)

June 17, 2017


Dear Friends,


The results of the nation-wide referendum among the listenners

conducted on 17 June by the Hiroshi Kume’s wide-show program entitled

"Should we retreat from the the Tokyo Olympic Games 2010 ?"

are extremely impressive.All age categories except “under 19 years old”

have overwhelmingly supported the retreat from the 2020 Olympic Games.

The results could not but have a far reaching impact on this vital issue.

The future of Fukushima depends on it.


This development coincides with another significant one.

In a surprise move, the International Olympic Committee announced on 16 June

that it was ending its Olympic sponsorship deal with Mcdonald.

The fast-food giant pulled out of its current, estimated 40-million-a-year, deal with

the International Olympic Committee more than three years early,

citing a “focus on different priorities”,severing a relationship that dated to 1976.


A new page is being opened as regards the Olympic Games 2020.
