The International Olympic Committee has postponed the Summer Games that had been scheduled to begin in late July in Tokyo to 2021 over the deadly coronavirus [COVID-19] pandemic.

The prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, had proposed a one-year postponement for the games during talks with the International Olympic Committee president, Thomas Bach.

I.O.C. leaders have acknowledged the disruption but said that a delay was the only way to ensure that athletes could train safely and the more than $10 billion the Japan has spent to prepare for the Olympics during the past seven years would not go to waste.
