Despite the coronavirus epidemic, Tokyo is completely safe for next year’s Olympics, claims the city’s governor, Yuriko Koike. They are working hard to ensure that the Games, which have been postponed for the first time, are held safely next year.
Koike has announced his candidacy for governor of Tokyo again next month. Koi believes that Tokyo is committed to hosting the Games as a “symbol of human victory” against the global virus. At the same time, he has admitted that he will not allow the games to be shortened in any way.
“I’m doing my best to reorganize the Games,” the 67-year-old Koike told AFP in an interview.
However, he could not say with full confidence how Japan was going to come up with a new plan for this greatest show on earth.
For the first time in Olympic history, the decision was made to postpone the Tokyo Olympics 2020 as the coronavirus spread in the form of a global epidemic. According to the new date, these games are scheduled to start on July 23, 2021. However, the game will be known as the 2020 Games. However, medical experts have expressed concern that the Games will be held safely next year.
The Japanese Organizing Committee and the International Olympic Committee have already warned that the Games will not be possible unless next year.
Koike said he is optimistic about overcoming the virus and organizing games safely. He also expressed confidence that Tokyo would be made safer for all, from foreign athletes to officials, supporters and the media.
