2020 Tokyo #Olympics POSTPONED to 2021 due to #Coronavirus pandemic!

Shut down! The Coronavirus pandemic is gripping the world!

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo has been postponed until 2021!

Huge numbers of sporting events have been canceled or postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. And now it looks like the granddaddy of global sporting events, the Tokyo Olympic Games, set for this summer, will join them.

On Monday, International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound told USA Today the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games will be postponed, likely to 2021. The IOC did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and it was unclear if Pound was speaking officially for the organization.

“On the basis of the information the IOC has, postponement has been decided,” Pound told USA Today. “The parameters going forward have not been determined, but the Games are not going to start on July 24, that much I know.”

The details are being worked out.
