Postponement of the Olympic Games could be a blessing in disguise for triathlete Matthew Wright, but he isn’t getting his hopes up too high.
If the Games are pushed back, he is expected to be fully recovered and ready to once again make his Olympic dream a reality.
Barbados’ top triathlete was on his journey to the Tokyo Games set for July 24 to August 9 when he suffered an injury during a training session where he was based in Cardiff, the United Kingdom on February 10.
