The Olympics this year are supposed to start on July 24 in Tokyo, Japan, however, due to COVID-19, this may not even happen. Many are wondering what will happen to the games?

 

The Japan Olympic Committee says games should be postponed because some athletes have been unable to train and many athletes and spectators may be coming from countries where the virus is still spreading.

 

However, it is possible that the games will be canceled despite Japan’s best efforts. Many do not know if the games will ever happen.

 

According to the Japanese leader, the games will not be canceled and, at the latest, will be held by the summer of 2021.
