2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics Postponed One Year

The 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics are being postponed for one year due to the Coronavirus. Japan's Prime Minister made the announcement today. He apparently consulted with the head of the IOC, and both agreed that the games should be postponed by one year. The Tokyo Summer Olympics will now take place sometime in summer 2021. I know this is hard for everyone involved, especially the athletes who have trained so hard to be ready for this summer. But the health of the world is really what's most important right now, and this postponement is the only way to make sure everyone stays safe. So while it is incredibly disappointing, we'll just look to 2021 to see the World's athletes compete.
