Tokyo 2020: Olympics postponed


According to the International Olympic committee (IOC) member Dick Pound, the Tokyo 2020 games will be postponed. The games that were expected to start from July 24th, 2020, will now most probably be shifted to next year.
This decision has come after Australia, Canada and Great Britain decided not to send their respective Olympics team to Tokyo
The corona virus has continued to shut down various sporting events. Earlier this month, sports leagues around the world had to be cancelled out or postponed.
This will be the very first time if the Olympics gets postponed. In the past, the Olympics got cancelled twice due to World War 1 and World War 2.
This year’s Olympics were supposed to be held in Tokyo. 11,000 athletes belonging to over 200 countries were expected to compete in 339 events. Many people who had jobs at this event will also be affected as well.
