IOC statement confirms Tokyo Olympics as scheduled

The International Olympic Committee issued a statement saying: "Although the new coronavirus has affected preparations, the position of the Tokyo Olympics has not changed." The statement states: "With four months to go before the Olympic Games start, it is not necessary to make a major decision at this stage; and any speculation at this moment may be counterproductive."
The statement states that we will continue to act responsibly and reach consensus on the overarching principles of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics:

1. Protect the health of all participants and do their best to contain the virus.

2. Protect the interests of athletes and the Olympic Movement.

In response to the fact that 43% of the contestants have not yet been decided, the International Olympic Committee pointed out that if the pre-selection cannot be performed in the future, the contestants will be selected based on the players' rankings in the world and their past results.

Japan welcomes this decision. Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Yoshihiro said at a press conference on the 18th: Welcome to the statement of the International Olympic Committee yesterday. Work closely with the Tokyo Olympic Committee and Tokyo Metropolitan Government to effectively advance preparations.

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike: "If it has been decided, the International Olympic Committee has always decided so, and the International Olympic Committee will continue to cooperate with the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee and Tokyo Metropolitan Government." "It is impossible to suspend and have no audience. . "

In the video conference on the 17th, the international individual sports federations did not request for the extension and suspension of the Tokyo Olympic Games on July 24. However, due to the popularity of new crowns in various countries around the world, the closure of the city and restrictions on movement and outing have continued. Objections have been raised against the scheduled meeting.
