Summer Olympics Rescheduled For 2021

It has been announced that the Olympic Games Tokyo, which had been slated to take place in July, are being rescheduled in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The International Olympic Committee said in a statement that the games “be rescheduled to a date beyond 2020, but not later than summer 2021, to safeguard the health of the athletes, everybody involved in the Olympic Games and the international community.”

This marks the first time the Olympic Games have ever been postponed, though other Olympics were canceled in 1916, 1940 and 1944, due to war.
