Tokyo 2020 on Hold

Summer 2021 new cut-off

In an unprecedented and unavoidable move, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters in Tokyo that he and International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach have agreed to postpone the 2020 Summer Olympics.

According to a tweet from the Japanese Prime Minister’s Office, the two agreed that the Games will not be canceled and “will be held by the summer of 2021.”

It is the first time in modern Olympic history that a global health issue has disrupted the Games.
