Toshiro Muto and Yuriko Koike seemed to shudder at the mountain of work waiting for them. The task is “overwhelming,” said the managing director of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee. “We have problems that are piling up,” said the governor of Tokyo.

The postponement of the games of the XXXII. Olympics for a maximum of one year due to the new type of corona virus is so complicated and diverse that the working group called “Let’s Go”, which comprises around 30 people and is supposed to solve all problems related to the postponement, on Thursday with the utmost respect for the first meeting met.

“In short,” said the president of the organizing committee, Yoshiro Mori, in a message on the company’s website, “what we have been working on for seven years has come to a screeching halt just as we are about to start.”

Now the same task had to be packed in about six months, which it would have taken seven years to do. “It will be difficult.” And expensive. Muto spoke in his opening speech of “massive” additional costs. The Kyodo news agency announced that Yuriko Koike would ask the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to help cover the costs.


The most pressing task for the task force is to find a new date for the games in the coming year. “We are racing against time,” said Muto: “There are so many problems that can not be solved if the new date for the games is not fixed.” Muto said that the interests of the world associations and National Olympic Committees , the sponsors, the television stations and, of course, the IOC.

On Thursday, a conference call by the IOC with the 33 affected Olympic World Associations should also deal with issues relating to laying. Some of them would prefer to postpone the games, which will also be called Tokyo 2020 next year, to spring in order to be able to pull through their major events in summer. IOC president At a press conference on Wednesday, Thomas Bach had said that all appointments by the summer of 2021 were possible. “All options are on the table.”

One of the central questions in Tokyo: whether the Olympic athletes’ village can be saved for next year’s games as planned or whether it will be occupied by the new apartment owners in autumn, as originally planned. Other topics include the sports facilities, which are actually no longer available, the temporary facilities that are now needed for longer, ticket sales, hotel bookings, transport, the security plan and much more. There were thousands of contracts that needed to be changed, Muto said.
