2023-03-11 現在、『TOKYO2020は、汚職と談合のイベントだった』という記憶の上書き、絶賛進行中です。 [長年日記]

現在、『TOKYO2020は、汚職と談合のイベントだった』という記憶の上書き、絶賛進行中です。

Currently, the overwriting of the memory that "TOKYO 2020 was an event of corruption and collusion" is underway to great acclaim.

TOKYO2020(開催は2021年でしたが)には、感動的なシーンが沢山あったと思うのですが、私は、あまり思い出せてないです。

I think there were many inspiring scenes in TOKYO 2020 (although it was held in 2021), but I, for one, can't remember many of them.

Well, personally, I think "that corona infection countermeasure - the 'bubble method' - was brilliant" - as an engineer.

TOKYO2020は、その開始前の記憶も鮮烈です。

TOKYO 2020 is also vividly remembered before its start.

オリンピック開催に尽力した4人の方々が、オリンピック開催前に「全員消えた」という、アガサクリスティも真っ青なできごともありました。

There was even an Agatha Christie-esque incident in which the four people who had worked so hard to organize the Olympics "all disappeared" before the Olympics were even held.

- 安倍元首相が、体調不良で辞任

- Former Prime Minister Abe resigns due to ill health.

- 猪瀬元東京都知事が、金の問題で辞任

- Former Tokyo Governor Inose resigns over money problems.

- 武田元JOC会長が、金の問題で辞任

- Former JOC President Takeda resigns over money issue

- 森元首相が、女性蔑視発言で辞任

- Former Prime Minister Mori resigns over derogatory remarks about women.

I think TOKYO2020 was a very rare event, in which the "before and after" are more memorable than the TOKYO2020 event itself.

ちなみに、これは、私個人の感想です。

By the way, this is my personal opinion.

素晴しいシーンは確かにあったはずです。

There must have been some great scenes.

多くの日本人が感動したはずです。

Many Japanese must have been impressed.

ただ、"私"が忘れてしまっているだけです。

It's just that "I" have forgotten.

一方、"私"のような人は、決して少数ではない、とも思っています。

On the other hand, I believe that there are more than a few people like me.

まあ、そういう意味で、やっぱり、今回の汚職と談合は『罪深いことなのだろうな』と思うのですよ。

Well, in that sense, I still think that this corruption and collusion 'must be sinful'.

江端:「という訳で、今、'TOKYO2020'のことを思い出しているんだけど、何覚えている?」

Ebata: "So now I'm remembering 'TOKYO2020', what do you remember?"

嫁さん:「そうだなぁ・・・『五輪バブル』かなぁ」

Wife: "Well...maybe the 'Olympics bubble'."

Come to think of it, my wife and my second daughter were making a small fortune working part-time as receptionists at the Olympic venues.
