this was reported by Vice-President of the organizing Committee of “Tokyo 2020” Toshiaki Endo. His comment leads TASS with reference to the Agency Kyodo.

“Roughly in March 2021, we will determine the composition of the teams. Somewhere at the same time, the organizing Committee will take decisions on the issue of the Olympics, which depend on the situation of the coronavirus,” said Endo.

He added that while talk about the cancellation of the Olympics is not.

Earlier, the Japanese media reported that the Games in Tokyo can go in a simplified format, if there is a difficult situation with the coronavirus. However, this option is a backup – according to officials, the authorities and the organising Committee hope for full-fledged competition. The game, which was to take place this summer, because of the pandemic coronavirus rescheduled for 23 July to 8 August 2021.
