The postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, decided this week, has raised a host of questions of all kinds, economic and sports. One of them concerned the hundreds of athletes who satisfied the qualification procedures for the Olympic events initially scheduled for this summer before the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic had their full effect. According to several concordant sources cited by AFP, the athletes who obtained their qualification for the 2020 Olympic Games will remain so for the event postponed in 2021 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

57% of athletes have their Olympic ticket

Some 57% of the 11,000 participants in the Tokyo Olympics have already obtained their qualification and will thus retain the sesame, whatever the date of postponement of the Games, at the latest in 2021, as jointly decided by the IOC and the concerned international federations which met by teleconference this Thursday.

For the time being, the Games option during the summer of 2021 seemed privileged, but the hypothesis of holding the great planetary competition on Japanese soil in the spring of 2021 still remained under study.
