IOC Weighing Rescheduling Olympics
IOC WEIGHING RESCHEDULING OLYMPICS, SAYS CANCELLATION NOT ON THE AGENDA
(CNN) – Olympic organizers says they’re stepping up scenario-planning for the 2020 games; in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
The International Olympic Committee executive board made the announcement on Sunday.
It says it’s debating a postponement of the games, but not a cancellation.
One consideration is the availability of Tokyo venues at a later date.
Organizers are also looking into whether the Olympics can start in July as planned, but with a modified operational strategy.
But, they want to be fair to athletes who’ve spent years training for the games and to ticket holders who already paid for their trips.
