IOC Considers Postponing Tokyo Olympic Games

The International Olympic Committee is stepping up its planning for alternative scenarios to the Tokyo 2020 Games, the IOC said in a statement Sunday, amid the global rise of Covid-19 cases and pressure from athletes and sport federations to delay the Games.

It was the first time the IOC acknowledged in an official communication that it is considering postponing the Tokyo Games, which are scheduled to start July 24. Cancellation isn’t being considered, the IOC said.
