IOC, Tokyo organizers agree to simplify 52 items for Tokyo Games 

The Saturday editions of all national dailies wrote that the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games agreed on Friday to simplify 52 items for the Tokyo games next year, including cuts in the number of officials and other non-athletes and spending for them by 10 to 15%. Since the decision was made in March to postpone the Games due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the IOC and the Tokyo organizers have prioritized streamlining the event in light of both the health risks and extra costs stemming from the unprecedented one-year delay. IOC Coordination Commission Chairman Coates said he is confident that the Tokyo Games will set an example for “future Olympics in the post-coronavirus era.”
