Tokyo Olympic Games begin in July 2021
The Japanese Olympic Games organization and the Olympic Committee have set a new date for the postponed 2020 Summer Games. The games will be postponed to July 23, 2021, and will run through August 8. Kyodo, a Japanese news agency, reports this.
The IOC has therefore opted for the relocation of approximately one full year and not a place in the spring of 2021, which could also have been an option. The Summer Games were previously postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The Olympics were supposed to start on July 24 this year.
In addition to the Olympics, many more events have been cancelled this year due to the corona outbreak. Many festivals are cancelled. The Passion will also not take place this year. The European Football Championship has also been cancelled, just like the Eurovision Song Contest that is being held in the Netherlands this year.
