The IOC, the IPC, the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Government of Japan today agreed new dates for the the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in 2021. The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will be celebrated from 23 July to 9 August 2021. They also agreed on new dates for the Paralympic Games, which will be celebrated from 24 August until 5 September 2021.

国际奥林匹克委员会,国际残奥会,东京奥委会,东京政府和日本政府今天(2020年3月30日)确定了2021年第32届奥林匹克运动会的新日期: 2021年7月23日至8月8日举行。此外,东京残奥会的新日期也已经确认,为2021年8月24日至9月5日。

This decision was taken by IOC based on the following three main considerations: 1. To protect the health of the athletes and everyone involved, and to support the containment of the COVID-19 virus. 2. To safeguard the interests of the athletes and of Olympic sport. 3. The global international sports calendar.


The IOC President Thomas Bach said: “We can master this unprecedented challenge. Humankind currently finds itself in a dark tunnel. These Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 can be a light at the end of this tunnel.” The President of the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, Mori Yoshirō, said: “IOC President Thomas Bach and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee held a conference call today to discuss in detail the revised dates of the Tokyo 2020 Games. I proposed that the Games should be hosted between July and August 2021, and I really appreciate that President Bach and the various international sports federations and other related organisations, kindly accepted my proposal. 

国际奥委会主席巴赫说:“我们能够应对这一前所未有的挑战,人类目前处在黑暗的隧道中,东京2020年奥运会可能就是这条隧道尽头的曙光。” 东京奥委组主席森喜朗谈到确定举办日期时说,“巴赫和东京奥组委今天举行电话会议,详细讨论了2020年东京奥运会的修订日期,我提议在2021年7月至2021年8月之间举办奥运会。我非常感谢巴赫与各个国际体育联合会接受了我的提议。”

It has previously been confirmed by the IOC that all athletes already qualified and quota places already assigned for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will remain unchanged. This is a result of the fact that these Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, in agreement with Japan, will remain the Games of the XXXII Olympiad.

根据国际奥委会先前的决议,所有已经取得参赛资格的运动员和已经分配给2020年东京奥运会的名额将保持不变。 国际奥委会并与日本达成协议,2020年东京奥运会将维持为第32届奥林匹克运动会,同时保留2020年东京奥运会的名称。
