IOC to decide in October whether to hold Tokyo Olympics next summer

Asahi and Yomiuri reported from Sydney on remarks made to a local press outlet by John Coates, the head of the IOC’s Coordination Commission for the Tokyo Olympics. He reportedly indicated that the IOC will probably decide around October whether or not to hold the Games in Tokyo in the summer of 2021. He reportedly ruled out the possibility of postponing the international sporting event again to 2022, saying it will only be held in 2021. The official reportedly indicated that even if a vaccine for COVID-19 is developed, the Tokyo Olympics may not be held if there aren’t enough supplies of the vaccine available worldwide.
