Will Coronavirus Cancel Or Postpone The 2020 Olympics?


The 2020 Summer Olympics haven’t been canceled or postponed, but people are starting to consider the possibility that they’ll be the next major event to go. The Olympics are set to start July 24 in Tokyo and the French Olympic Committee President Denis Masseglia said that if the COVID-19 coronavirus isn’t contained by the end of May, he couldn’t see how the Olympics could happen on time.

Any speculation at this moment would be counter-productive and encourages all athletes to continue to prepare for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 as best they can. The situation around the COVID-19 virus is also impacting the preparations for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and is changing day by day.

While professional sports leagues across the globe are delaying their events and seasons in preparation for an extended coronavirus quarantine, nothing would be as significant as an outright cancellation of the Olympics, a biennial event that’s estimated to contribute tens of billions of dollars to the Japanese economy.
