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.

BOA Logo Thank you ad 2020

Hamilton, Bermuda—10 March 2020: The Bermuda Olympic Association (BOA) has announced the winner of its recent Team Bermuda Logo Competition.
The “Longtail Circle” logo submitted by Bermudian illustrator and graphic designer Frederick “Lee” Ingram received the largest number of votes among the shortlisted designs that were put to the public for their consideration, and was the inspiration for the final design revealed by the BOA at a special reception at the Bermuda National Gallery today.

NOC BER Commercial CMYK 300p

On 14 January 2020, the BOA invited submissions from Bermudian graphic designers, both professionals and students, based locally and overseas. A total of 82 designs were received from 39 designers. Five designs were shortlisted and displayed online and at the Bermuda National Gallery during the middle two weeks of February, giving the public the opportunity to review the designs and vote for their favourite.
Mr. Ingram’s design, which features a longtail drawn in the national team colours of deep blue and Bermuda pink, encircling “Team Bermuda” text and Olympic Rings received just over 30% of the nearly 1,600 votes cast.
The winning design was submitted to the International Olympic Committee, which reviewed it and tweaked it slightly for conformance with IOC brand standards. The final design will be used as a commercial logo to complement the official National Olympic Committee emblem, appearing on BOA sponsorship materials, and on athletes’ non-competition and non-ceremonial kit at major international sports festivals.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board (EB) today expressed its full commitment to the success of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, taking place from 24 July to 9 August 2020. 

The IOC EB heard a report on all the measures taken so far to address the coronavirus situation, which was followed by a comprehensive discussion.

A joint task force had already been created in mid-February, involving the IOC, Tokyo 2020, the host city of Tokyo, the government of Japan and the World Health Organization (WHO). The IOC EB appreciates and supports the measures being taken, which constitute an important part of Tokyo’s plans to host safe and secure Games.
