If you haven’t heard already, the 2020 Olympics set to be in Tokyo have been postponed.
Due to the threat of proximity causing the spread of illness caused by the COVID-19 virus, the 2020 Summer Olympics have officially been postponed to July 23 – August 8, 2021.
Japan’s Prime Minister and Governor Koike Yuriko said: “In consideration of the global coronavirus outbreak, we need a certain time frame before we fully prepare for the delivery of Games that are safe and secure for the athletes and spectators. Also, the preparation for the new dates will go smoothly, as the dates match with the same timeframe as the original competition dates, corresponding with ticketing, venue staffing, volunteers and transport. Therefore, I believe that celebrating the opening of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 on 23 July 2021 is ideal.
