Rochester Athletes Remain Hopeful Despite Olympics Postponed to 2021
March 25, 2020


The Summer Olympics in Tokyo have been postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Rochester athletes are reacting to the news.


Wrestler Yianni Diakomihalis just qualified for the Olympic trials but the Hilton native is staying positive.

"You know it's unfortunate. You got to wait another year and been pushed back but I'm still improving,” Diakomihalis said. “I'm still not at my prime yet so kind of the silver lining is it is one more year to get ready and one more year to be better. One more year to be more prepared for when that opportunity comes."
