Dawn Staley gives an update on preparation for Tokyo 2021, “everything is still so fluid”

Team USA women’s basketball head coach Dawn Staley provided an update on the U.S. women’s national team’s plans for the postponed Tokyo Games, now scheduled for the summer of 2021. Staley made her comments Monday during NBCSN’s “Lunch Talk Live” with Mike Tirico.

“I’m happy that they pushed it back a year rather than cancel it altogether. You know everything is still so fluid you know we just received an email from Carol Callan last week, just kind of giving us a penciled schedule. There’s nothing that we can do at this point because nothing’s really set in stone, but we do want to hold some training camps leading up to the Olympic Games. When they’ll be we don’t know. But we know that, hopefully, we’ll get back to some normalcy where we can get those things in concrete and continue our quest to training for a seventh straight gold medal.”
