Makes sense. A lot of countries, including the USA were postponing their Olympic trials indefinitely.

Just move it to the Fall.

Bigger question is, what kind of parents would name their son ‘Dick Pound’. That’s almost as bad as Richard ie ‘Dick Trickle’.

Well, it was scheduled for September. October gets kind of cold in Japan.

Back in the 70s, the Red Sox had a pitcher named Dick Pole. You can look it up.

It was scheduled for late July/early August.

As other poster said, they're moving it to 2021 but going to still call it Tokyo 2020 - probably already made all the signs and letterheads.
