2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo Postponed 1 Year

The 2020 Summer Olympics, which were originally scheduled to kick off on July 24 in Tokyo, Japan, have been officially postponed one year.

The announcement was made yesterday that the games would have to be postponed based on what is happening health-wise around the world.

Now, Prime Minister Abe Shinzo revealed he proposed a one year proposal to 2021, which was accepted.

“I proposed to postpone for about a year and (IOC) president [Thomas] Bach responded with 100% agreement,” the Prime Minister said.

Before this announcement was even made, two countries said they would not send athletes to the games if they were still held in 2020.
