Coronavirus pandemic: Kiren Rijiju, IOA delegation's visit to Tokyo for Olympic preparation cancelled

@KirenRijiju
The visit of a high-powered delegation comprising Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju and top Indian Olympic Association (IOA) officials to Tokyo later this month to look into India's logistical preparedness for the Olympics has been put on hold in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. Rijiju tweeted, the visit was scheduled for 25th to 29th of this month but will now happen at a later date which is yet to be decided.

Besides Rijiju, the other members of the delegation included IOA President Narinder Batra, Secretary General Rajeev Mehta, Boxing Federation of India President Ajay Singh, Sports Secretary Radhey Shyam Julaniya and Sports Authority of India Director General Sandip Pradhan.


More than 70 Indian athletes have so far qualified for the Tokyo Olympics and the IOA is expecting the number to touch at least 125 before the Games.


The coronavirus outbreak has led to speculation over the fate of the Olympics this year. The International Olympic Committee, however, has insisted that the Games will be held as scheduled in July-August.
