Breaking: Japan Proposes One-Year Postponement For Tokyo Olympics


Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe and Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike have proposed a one-year postponement of the Summer Olympics in Tokyo in a conference call with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.

Abe said Bach agreed “100%” with this proposal, which would have to be approved by the IOC’s Executive Board.

The Olympics have never been postponed in history. The modern Olympics has been canceled only during wartime. A final decision would have to be announced and made by the IOC and Bach.
