IOC President: The World Is With You – Tokyo 2020 an experience to remember

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach has delivered a message of support to athletes arriving in Japan for Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.  It follows confirmation no spectators will be allowed at venues due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic.

President Bach emphasised that athlete safety was the number one priority for these Games.  But assured athletes they will still have an Olympic experience to remember.

He told them to get ready, pack their bags and that no-one would miss their performance at the Olympics.

The IOC President added:  We all regret this decision for not having spectators – for the spectators, but even more so for the athletes.  They will not be able to enjoy life in the Olympic atmosphere. 

But for the athletes, I think their feeling will be very different, because they will know that billions of people from around the globe are with them in their hearts, that they are supporting them.

Fans will be able to follow sporting events online and cheer and clap virtually.
