Canada, Australia say they won’t send athletes to July 2020 Olympics

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says postponing the Tokyo Olympics, slated to begin in July, may become “inevitable,” after the International Olympic Committee for the first time admitted delaying the games is a possibility.

Meanwhile, Canada’s Olympic committee says it will not send athletes if they are held this summer.

Australia’s Olympic committee tells athletes to prepare for a northern-hemisphere summer Olympics in 2021.

“It’s clear the Games can’t be held in July,” Australian chef de mission Ian Chesterman says.
