As Tokyo Olympics 2020 is almost here, the participation of the Indian Teams and sportspersons is being reviewed round the clock.
The Ministry of Sports has decided to depute maximum additional support staff such as coaches, doctors, physiotherapists, to optimize the performance of the athletes.
Visit of any person other than athletes, coaches, and support staff will be taken up only if there is any protocol requirement. In the light of the arrangement, it has been decided not to have any Ministry delegation for the Tokyo Olympics.
An Olympic Mission Cell is being set up in the Embassy of India in Tokyo, as a single-window node to provide logistic support to the Indian Contingent bound for Tokyo, so that all possible assistance is rendered seamlessly.
The 2020 Summer Olympics, also known as Tokyo 2020, is an upcoming international multi-sport event scheduled to be held from July 23 to August 8, 2021, in Tokyo, Japan.
Earlier, it was scheduled to take place from July 24 to August 9, 2020. The event was postponed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will not allow international spectators.
Despite being rescheduled for 2021, the event retains the Tokyo 2020 name. It is pertinent to mention that it was for the first time that the Olympic Games have been postponed and rescheduled, rather than being canceled.
