Tokyo Games postponement poses calendar conundrum

China Daily | Updated: 2020-03-26 00:00

The expected yet stunning decision on Tuesday to postpone the 2020 Olympics because of the coronavirus pandemic could have a ripple effect on other major events, most notably the world championships for athletics and swimming.

While the International Olympic Committee has yet to set a new date for the Tokyo Games other than "not later than summer 2021", the revised calendar undoubtedly will heavily impact two of the event's biggest sports.

The 2021 world athletics championships are scheduled for next summer in Eugene, Oregon, which is constructing a new stadium that will seat 30,000 on the site of historic Hayward Field. The next world aquatics championships are set for roughly the same time in Fukuoka, Japan.
