Now we see through a glass, darkly...

The Japanese camera companies do not select who represents each country in each sport. It doesn't matter how much the camera companies want to put on the games, if the sanctioning bodies for each sport in each country do not have qualifying events and send athletes, there will be no legitimate Olympiad.It is a big deal for Japnese camera companies since it is their home country but there is an Olympics every 2 years
There's an Olympiad (summer games) every four years and a Winter Games (much smaller and not considered an Olympiad since the events are not modeled on the ancient Greek games) every four years that is offset by about 18 months from the summer games, which puts them in calendar years that are two years apart. But the 2022 Winter games will only be about 18 months after the original 2020 Summer games were scheduled. IF the 2021 Summer Games are held, the 2022 Winter games will be six or seven months later.
