In an interview with a German publication, the International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said the IOC will face “several hundred million dollars” of added costs because of the postponement of the Tokyo Games. Estimates in Japan put the overall cost of the postponement at USD 2 billion-USD 6 billion. Except for the IOC portion, all added costs will be borne by the Japanese side according to an agreement signed in 2013 when Tokyo was awarded the Olympics. Before the postponement, Japanese organizers put the official cost of the games at USD 12.6 billion. However, a government audit report in 2019 said the costs were at least twice that. Meanwhile, on Friday, the CEO of the Tokyo organizing committee, Mr. Toshiro Muto, said the pandemic left some doubts about the games going ahead next year. We discuss this further with the Editor-in-Chief of Power Sportz, Ms. Kanthi D Suresh.
