Olympic Games postponed?
On the website of the Spanish newspaper “Marca”, the new of the postponement of the Olympic games is rumored.
Among the hypotheses under consideration there are to postpone the inauguration in October, to postpone all events in summer 2021, or even further, in 2022, in the same year in which the Beijing Winter Games and the soccer’s World Cup in Qatar are scheduled.
Despite all the efforts made by the International Olympic Committee to respect the dates of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, as well as the desire of Japan, a country that controlled the coronavirus crisis, the institution that presides Thomas Bach is forced to activate an emergency plan. The executive of the International Olympic Committee set a four-week deadline to find a new solution for the Tokyo Olympics due to the global pandemic already widespread also in Africa and Australia, making it impossible to celebrate the world most important sport event on the dates scheduled between 24 July and 9 August.
We hope to know more in the coming hours. Olympic games’ cancellation is however excluded.
