Japan ynskir nú OL flutt til 2021

Lesið t.d. her á Sports Illustrated umframt tíðindaskrivið nú á heimasíðu IOC sum váttar tíðindini íroknað at Olympisku Leikirnir 2020 verða fluttir til í 2021.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe and Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike have proposed a one-year postponement of the Summer Olympics in Tokyo in a conference call with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.

Abe said Bach agreed “100%” with this proposal, which would have to be approved by the IOC’s Executive Board. 

The Olympics have never been postponed in history. The modern Olympics has been canceled only during wartime. A final decision would have to be announced and made by the IOC and Bach.

OL 2020 verður útsett, sigur IOC limur

Royndi IOC limurin Dick Pound avdúkaði í dag í samrøðu við USA Today, at avgerðin um at útseta OL 2020 er tikin.

“On the basis of the information the IOC has, postponement has been decided,” Pound said in a phone interview. “The parameters going forward have not been determined, but the Games are not going to start on July 24, that much I know.”

IOC umhugsar at útseta OL 2020

IOC-forsetin Thomas Bach skrivaði í brævi í gjár til alheims íðkarar, at tað kann koma uppá tal at útseta OL 2020 í Tokyo, men at tað eisini er sera trupult.

So, like you, we are in a dilemma: Cancellation of the Olympic Games would destroy the Olympic dream of 11,000 athletes from all 206 National Olympic Committees, from the IOC Refugee Olympic Team, most likely for the Paralympic athletes, and for all the people who are supporting you as coaches, doctors, officials, training partners, friends and family. Cancellation would not solve any problem and would help nobody. Therefore it is not on our agenda.

A decision about a postponement today could not determine a new date for the Olympic Games because of the uncertain developments in both directions: an improvement, as we are seeing in a number of countries thanks to the severe measures being taken, or a deteriorating situation in other countries.

Contrary to other sports events, to postpone the Olympic Games is an extremely complex challenge. Just to give you some examples:

A number of critical venues needed for the Games could potentially not be available anymore. The situations with millions of nights already booked in hotels is extremely difficult to handle, and the international sports calendar for at least 33 Olympic sports would have to be adapted. These are just a few of many, many more challenges.

Tey ætlaðu tá at brúka næstu fýra vikurnar uppá at viðgera eina møguliga útseting; men tann avgerðin verður væl møguliga framskundað, um lond nú fella frá í stórum.

Avstralia sendir heldur ongan til ætlaða OL 2020 vegna COVID-2019

Lesið her á olympics.com.au

The AOC held an Executive Board meeting via teleconference this morning and unanimously agreed that an Australian Team could not be assembled in the changing circumstances at home and abroad.

AOC Chief Executive Matt Carroll says athletes have needed certainty – they wanted to do the right thing for themselves, their families and the world community.

“We have athletes based overseas, training at central locations around Australia as teams and managing their own programs. With travel and other restrictions this becomes an untenable situation.

“The IOC had adopted the key principles of putting athlete health first and ensuring it acted in their best interests and the interests of sport. This decision reflects those principles.

“We are now in a position where we can plan with greater certainty.”

Avstralska svimjisambandið stuðla avgerðini, og hava niðurlagt sína úrvalssskipan nú støðan er sum hon er.

Following the government’s most recent advice and further restrictions being imposed across the country, and after consultation with high performance coaches, Russell said Swimming Australia’s high performance programs would also immediately shut down.

“It is clear that to stop the spread of COVID-19 we must all follow government advice and practice physical distancing,” Russell said.

“In light of all non-essential services being shut down we will suspend all of our Olympic and Paralympic training programs for the foreseeable future.

“The safety and health of our athletes, coaches, staff, their families and our community, is paramount at the moment.”

Áðrenn hetta hevur avstralski forsætismálaráðharrin kunngjørt, at tey innføra bann í minst 6 mánaðir fyri allar ferðir sum ikki eru alneyðugar, ið sum skilst eisini forðrar fyri at Avstralia luttekur á OL 2020 í Tokyo, í øllum førum um teir verða nú í summar.
