Tokyo Olympics 2020 organisers unveil first coronavirus playbook to assure athletes, sway public opinion
Tokyo 2020 organisers and the IOC on Wednesday began explaining in public just how they hope to hold the Games, rolling out “playbooks" to detail the ways that 15,400 athletes will enter — and exit — Japan.
From the Opening Ceremony to life in the village on Tokyo Bay, the postponed 2020 Olympics will be like no other. There'll be stringent rules and guidelines.
The executive board of the IOC is expected to review the proposed cuts on Wednesday. They include about 50 changes to fringe areas that leave the number of athletes — 15,400 for the Olympics and Paralympics — and all sports events untouched for next year.
