Australian Olympic Committee welcome Tokyo 2020 switch to 2021

The Australian Olympic Committee has welcomed the Tokyo Games being postponed to 2021 due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Pressure had been building on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and its president, Thomas Bach, with some athletes and sporting bodies angry that a seemingly inevitable decision had taken so long.

Japan’s prime minister and the head of the International Olympic Committee on Tuesday agreed to postpone the Tokyo 2020 Games by a year in an extraordinary move, unprecedented in peacetime, as the world battles the Coronavirus pandemic.
