Tokyo Olympics 2020 are likely to be held in 2021

Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Olympic committee has postponed the Tokyo Olympics 2020 to 2021.

The Olympics were suppose to be held on July 24th of this year but the committee has decided to conduct next year keeping in mind the health and safety of their players and the spectators. The date of the Olympics are yet to be revealed.

In the history of 124 years, this will be the first time ever that the olympics are likely to be postponed.  Back in the years 1916, 1940 and 1944 the Olympic games were cancelled due to the World Wars but never has it been postponed. The social and travel restrictions have disrupted several athletes preparations for the upcoming games.
