FIG welcomes new dates set for Tokyo Olympic Games

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee have announced today that the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo will be held from 23rd July to 8th August 2021. Following this announcement, FIG President Morinari Watanabe said: "We thank the IOC, the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Government of Japan for quickly setting the new dates for the Olympic Games. We can also be proud of the solidarity shown by all stakeholders in this challenging period to do everything they can to work towards the success of the Games and the sake of the athletes. This announcement will enable us to best address the issues left open by the postponement of the Games by one year, starting with the Olympic places that have not yet been allocated.
We will focus our efforts on respecting the spirit of the Olympic qualification system as defined in the rules. We will ensure that events that had to be postponed can take place once this global health crisis is behind us and we will be absolutely certain that all conditions are met and guarantee the safety of all participants."

The IOC has already confirmed that all quota places that have been allocated to date shall remain allocated to the National Olympic Committees and athletes that obtained them.
