To fight the COVID-19 and ensure the safety of the athletes, earlier this month the International Olympics Committee and Government of Japan took a joint decision to postpone the Olympics event that was supposed to happen in Tokyo, Japan, to the 2021 summers.
Now the organizers and the key parties through a telephonic conference released the new schedule of the Olympics 2021.
Still termed as Tokyo Olympics 2020, the grand sporting events will be held from 23 July to 8 August, while the Paralympics will be held from 24 August to 5 September 2021.
The Olympic Games #Tokyo2020 will be held from 23 July until 8 August 2021.

Apart from the new dates, the Sports committee also announced that the athletes who have qualified for the Summer Olympics will have the quota in the next year’s Olympics and won’t have to go through any qualifier round.
