Veteran International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Dick Pound announced on Monday that the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Summer Games are going to be postponed amid the coronavirus pandemic. “The parameters going forward have not been determined, but the Games are not going to start on July 24, that much I know.“It will come in stages. We will postpone this and begin to deal with all the ramifications of moving this, which are immense.” Asked about Pound’s comments, an IOC spokesman said: “Well, as we announced yesterday, we are looking at scenarios.”Olympic Committee chairman Thomas Bach said on Sunday that he has ruled out cancelling the Games altogether. The decision to postpone the Olympics comes after intense pressure from competing countries, with Australia and Canada pulling out before today’s announcement.Japan and the IOC said that the total cancellation of the Games was not an option. But finding a new date could be complicated as the summer calendar of 2021 is already crowded, while 2022 will see the soccer World Cup and the Beijing Winter Olympics.Just last week, World Athletics president and British Olympic hero Seb Coe insisted it was too early to make a decision on the Games.But Coronavirus has continued to spread, decimating the entire sporting calendar.Euro 2020 has been pushed back a year, there remains total uncertainty over the future of the Premier League and every other sport around the world has been affected in some way.
