The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are scheduled to start on July 23, 2021 and last until August 8, 2021.
The announcement came after a meeting of the IOC Executive Council today.
The Opening Ceremony of the XXXII Olympic Games was scheduled for July 24 this year and was forced to be postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The one-year delay was agreed by the council after discussions with the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee and International Federations.
The World Athletics Championship, scheduled for Oregon, USA, in 2021, will now return one year to 2022 to facilitate the Tokyo Olympic Games next year.
