Some dreams of Olympic gold in the 2021 Summer Games have already been dashed for some athletes after they tested positive for the coronavirus, either before or after they arrived in Tokyo. As of July 23, the host city reportedly has vaccinated only about a third of its massive population. And it's now sidelined five U.S. participants. Let's hope the list doesn't grow and the Games go on as planned.
