    Tokyo 2020 Olympics Postponed Until 2021

    Tokyo 2020 Olympics Postponed as Coronavirus Spreads Due to the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus, various aspects of daily life have been affected, including schools and major sports events. Joining this list is the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which has been postponed.

    Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, and the President of the International Olympics Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach, held meetings and decided to postpone the Olympics. The risk of hosting such a large international event in the current situation is significant, as it could contribute to the rapid spread of the disease.

    It is now expected that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will take place in 2021. Although a specific date has not been set, the aim is to hold the Olympics no later than the end of the following summer.

    This decision is a wise one, considering that countries like Canada and Australia had already expressed their intention not to participate in this year’s Olympics if they were not postponed. After consulting the athletes, the IOC determined that postponement was necessary for the safety of everyone involved, even though the athletes may not have been enthusiastic about the change.

    Final Thoughts

    It is unfortunate to see a major event like the Olympics postponed. But it would have been quite hazardous to have a gathering with people from all over the world. This could have had the potential to spread the virus significantly. Hopefully, though, things will have calmed down by this time next year, and everyone can get back to enjoying sports of all kinds.

    What do you guys think though?

    Were you surprised to hear that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics had been postponed, or was this something that you saw coming? Do you agree with Japan and the IOC’s decision to move the Olympics? And when do you expect the games to return?
