Bach told that when he can see a clear view on how the world will look on 23rd July,2021 then only he would take appropriate decisions
The rapid spread of coronavirus throughout the world is actually making sports impossible to take place in proper time.so, proper decision would be taken after 23rd july.
According to the new schedule the Olympics would take place on 23rd July continuing till 8th August.
The Tokyo Olympics will be followed by china hosting the 2022 Beijing winter Olympics
A question was being asked to the IOC president if the tournament could held behind close doors.The IOC president replied “this is not what we want”
Because other than the Olympics being a game it is also about uniting the fans and this is something which makes the game more unique.But when it comes to decision making,the IOC president said he would like to take some time and consult with the athletes,world health organisation,japanese partners.
The Olympics were last cancelled in 1994 due to world war ll but the games had never been delayed in their 124years of history.
