Japanese capital should then replace Paris as the host city for the 2024 Games.

This is the most logical solution, just push it all back by one 4 year cycle.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist tweeted that it would be "ludicrous" to host an event with thousands of people flying in from around the world.

Thanks for stating whats obvious to everyone but the thick skulls of the Mori & Inc oyajis in charge of it here?

I think hosting it in 2022 would be more appropriate. They used to host the Summer and Winter Olympics in the same year before they changed it in the 90's. Keep Paris for 2024. Not that big a deal if you have an Olympics 2 years apart. 2024 would mean many athletes would have lost their chance. Also, what to do about the "Athletes' Village" condo problem? Do the Olympics really need an Athletes village? Can't the athletes just stay in hotels? Oh, I guess there is that security problem. No one wants another Munich. What a headache this all is.
