2021 will still be too early as nations are decimated. Remember athletes need months of training and by spring they'll still be either only just receiving a vaccine if one is made then or more likely still in lockdown conditions. Thus not enough time. If they ever hold games again it'll be 2022 or IOC will be sued for the insurance money to cancel it as it overlaps with Winter. Although you could have Summer and Winter games in a year but not practical.

Also can you guess the city of the Winter 2022 games? A city to rally around?

Why it's Beijing !

No one will be rallying around China anytime soon.

Olympics will be under pressure to cancel or suspend to 2024
