(KYMA, KECY/ NBC News) - With the 2021 Tokyo games just over two months away, people are holding onto hope that the games stay intact despite concerns surrounding the increase in Covid-19.

In Japan, the Tokyo Olympic Organization Committee confirmed that six people working on the torch relay course have tested positive for Covid-19. But over the weekend, Japanese officials have once again said that organizers are not considering to cancel the summer games.

For the Olympic athletes, they need something to keep themselves busy and happy leading up to the summer games with the hopes that they will be able to represent their country in 2021.

For Sam Mikulak, he has spent years training for the Olympics as a gymnast and while he has yet to find a medal at the end of his hard work, he has found something even more precious. That happens to be happiness.
