Yesterday it was announced by the IOC and the Tokyo organizing committee that the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be postponed. No official date has been set yet but it will be no later than summer of 2021.
The Bermuda Paralympic Association fully supports this decision as it is in the best interest of all athletes, coaches, support staff and spectators health and safety during these unprecedented times.
We thank the IOC, the IPC and the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee and community for all their hard work and for making the tough decisions to make sure the games are a safe environment.
We have no doubt that our athletes will work together to help each other stay motivated as they continue to train in anticipation of the new date.
