But many athletes also believe it was the right decision. The International Olympic Committee has not yet set a date for the new Tokyo Games, but said it will happen no later than summer 2021.

CGTN's Dan Williams talked to Casey Eichfeld, a U.S. Olympic U.S. slalom canoeist and Aaron Mann of the American Canoe Association about how they feel about the delay and what it will mean to the sport.

Ana Fernanda and Ana Luisa Bernal are 16-year-old twins and juniors in high school. Since kindergarten, they've crossed an international border every single day to go to school.

The girls live in Mexicali, Mexico, with their mother but, being born in the US, they're able to cross to get an education in English in Calexico, California.

Like many other transborder (or "transfronterizo" in Spanish) children studying in a different country, the twins embark on their daily journey very early in the morning.

This film is part of the BBC's Crossing Divides season.
