Covid-19: Tokyo 2020 Olympics might be postponed

Mar 24, 2020 23:05 IST

After an emergency meeting on Sunday, the International Olympic Committee announced that it might consider the option of postponing the Tokyo 2020 Olympics as athletes, teams, and federations have strongly opposed the current schedule for the games due to start from 24th July amidst the rising threat of coronavirus pandemic. The IOC has set for itself a deadline of 4 weeks to make the decision. Although there was no emphasis on cancellation of the games, but other options like scaling down the games might be taken into consideration.
