ANOC Statement
On behalf of the National Olympic Committees (NOC) family, ANOC expresses its full support to the IOC and Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee for their joint decision to postpone the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
ANOC recognises that this is a very complex situation that has required consultation with many different Olympic stakeholders. However, as the IOC and Tokyo 2020 have made clear with this decision, the health of the athletes and all Olympic stakeholders is the number one priority and surpasses all other considerations.
ANOC welcomes the certainty this decision provides athletes and NOCs who can now plan with the knowledge that the Games will not take place this year but not later than summer 2021. As the leaders of the IOC and Tokyo 2020 commented, the Olympic Games will now serve as a “beacon of hope” for us all to look forward to with optimism as we aim to emerge from these challenging times stronger than ever.
With the COVID-19 pandemic seemingly accelerating around the world, it is very important that all Olympic stakeholders continue to follow the guidance and advice provided by the World Health Organisation and their respective national health authorities.
ANOC offers its deepest sympathies to all those who have been affected by COVID-19 and will continue to offer support to NOCs during these challenging times.

Today, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) continued its consultations with all the stakeholders of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The first took place with the International Olympic Summer Sports Federations. Those with the National Olympic Committees (NOCs), the athletes’ representatives, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), other International Federations (IFs) and other stakeholders will follow in the coming days.

This communique* sets out the principles established by the IOC Executive Board (EB), together with their implementation in cooperation with all the stakeholders concerned. The IOC will continue to act as a responsible organisation. In this context, the IOC asks all its stakeholders within their own remits to do everything to contribute to the containment of the virus.

Communique

This is an unprecedented situation for the whole world, and our thoughts are with all those affected by this crisis. We are in solidarity with the whole of society to do everything to contain the virus.

The situation around the COVID-19 virus is also impacting the preparations for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and is changing day by day.

The IOC remains fully committed to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and with more than four months to go before the Games there is no need for any drastic decisions at this stage; and any speculation at this moment would be counter-productive.

The IOC encourages all athletes to continue to prepare for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 as best they can. We will keep supporting the athletes by consulting with them and their respective NOCs, and by providing them with the latest information and developments, which are accessible for athletes worldwide on the Athlete365 website and via their respective NOCs and IFs.

The IOC has confidence that the many measures being taken by many authorities around the world will help contain the situation of the COVID-19 virus. In this context, the IOC welcomes the support of the G7 leaders as expressed by Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo, who said: “I want to hold the Olympics and Paralympics perfectly, as proof that the human race will conquer the new coronavirus, and I gained support for that from the G-7 leaders.”

The Bermuda Olympic Association would like to thank all of the designers who submitted design entries into the Team Bermuda Logo Competition.
