TO SAFEGUARD THE HEALTH OF ALL INVOLVED AND TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE CONTAINMENT OF COVID-19, THE EXECUTIVE BOARD (EB) OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) TODAY ANNOUNCED THAT THE IOC WILL STEP UP ITS SCENARIO-PLANNING FOR THE OLYMPIC GAMES TOKYO 2020.
WORLD Championship 200-metre finalist Kyle Greaux said he will be in support of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics being postponed, as a number of prior meets have been cancelled which is preventing athletes from preparing for the Games.
