The 2020 Olympic Games, due to start on July 24 in Tokyo, were forced to a new, as yet undetermined date in 2021, by a global pandemic of a new type of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, that causes in some people severe pneumonia that has resulted in thousands of deaths worldwide.
Competitions began being halted in January, and by March the entire sporting world had screeched to a halt to stop the spread of the virus. With Olympic qualifiers postponed, anti-doping controls reduced and travel restrictions the IOC and local organisers came to the unfortunate decision to postpone the Olympics.
