Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Jordan Forte

Less than a week after Radio Jamaica Sports aired a story where the Japanese Ambassador to Jamaica Masaya Fujiwara expressed confidence in the Olympics being staged this year, authorities are now scrambling to quell fears that the quadriennial Games will be cancelled.
