International Olympic Committee (IOC) has confirmed the new dates for the Tokyo Olympics. It will be held from July 23 to August 8 next year. Sporting events like World Athletics Championships are now getting moved to the following year.
Tokyo Olympics 2020 was scheduled to begin this year on July 24. This means the Olympics is delayed for almost a year. Last week it was announced that the Olympics had been postponed and today the dates are confirmed.
This decision has been made after the discussion between the organizers, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Japanese government, and the International Paralympic Committee.
Now, the Paralympics will be held from August 24 to September 5 of 2021.
Now the World Athletics has confirmed that next year’s World Championships will be postponed to 2022.

IOC president Thomas Bach said, ” Humankind currently finds itself in a dark tunnel. These Tokyo Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 can be a light at the end of this tunnel.”
