Here is a really good opinion piece from Sally Jenkins https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2021/05/05/japan-ioc-olympic-contract/.  

She has some great information that I had not seen before, including the amount of medical resources the host country is required to put on "stand-by" for the Olympics per their contract with IOC. Would love to hear Jess' reaction to this.
