The questions hovering around the Tokyo Olympics may finally have answers.
According to numerous reports, the International Olympic Committee is eyeing July 23, 2021 for the global meet’s opening ceremony.
The date is 366 days after the supposed start date of this year’s Olympics.
None other than Japanese state broadcaster NHK reported the development.
Last week, the Japanese government and the IOC announced that they were postponing the Games due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Currently, four Filipino athletes have qualified for the Games — namely gymnast Caloy Yulo, pole vaulter EJ Obiena, and boxers Eumir Marcial and Irish Magno.
There are no announcements yet regarding the status of the suspended Olympic Qualifying Tournaments. Moreover, biennial meets like the world championships and the Southeast Asian Games are also adjusting to the postponement of the Olympics.
This is the first time in the Olympiad’s history that it has been moved.
