Quotes from the news wire:
World cross country champion at just Agnes Jebet Tirop burst, Agnes Jebet Tirop burst on to the global scene in 2015 and has been one of the world's best female distance runners over the past six years, this is a terrible blow to the entire athletics community, but especially to Agnes Jebet Tirop family, her friends and Athletics Kenya and I send them all our most heartfelt condolences.
There's a rather sobering statistic : 70 % of competitors that are chasing an Tokyo Olympics slot are only going to have one chance of this, to pull the plugs on an Olympic Games when football, tennis, rugby and so many other sports are now up and running -- and some even with crowds -- where cities are coming out of lockdown and are moving towards normalcy, I can see no good reason why you wouldn't want to do everything you possibly can to make sure that you're not discarding a generation of athletes who have spent over half their young lives in pursuit of this one moment which is real life for them and their families and their friends and the systems that have been in place to support them.
