Tokyo Olympics would have to be cancelled if not held in 2021: IOC chief Updated: 2020-05-22 10:03:56 KST

IOC chief Thomas Bach says the Tokyo Games will have to be scrapped altogether IF the event cannot be held next summer.
Speaking to BBC Sport on Thursday, Bach said "you can't forever employ thousands of people in an organizing committee, and also leave the athletes in uncertainty."
Bach said all possible scenarios are under consideration and he called it a "mammoth task" and said staging such a massive sporting event behind closed doors is (quote) "not what we want."
In March, the IOC and Japanese officials made the unprecedented decision to postpone the Olympics to next year-- as coronavirus gripped the world.
