Tokyo 2020 CEO Muto: There Are No Guarantees The Games Will Go Ahead In July 2021
SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
April 10, 2020— Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto admits there are no guarantees that the rescheduled Olympic Games will go ahead as planned next year as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the world.

SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
March 26, 2020— Four-time Olympic champion Kosuke Kitajima – the only man in history to have won back-to-back breaststroke titles – believes athletes must prepare for every eventuality and overcome every hurdle in the light of the postponement of Tokyo 2020. The Japanese – known as the ‘Frog King’ – won the 100 and 200m breaststroke at Athens 2004 before a successful defence four years later in Beijing saw him write his own entry in the record books. That record of being the only male breaststroker to have retained an Olympic title – and the sole swimmer, man or woman, to have defended the 100m gold ...
