The International Olympic Committee has said that it will hold its next session by video link that will be streamed live on July 17.
The session was originally scheduled for Tokyo before the opening of the 2020 Games.
A statement from the IOC’s Lausanne headquarters said, “The IOC Executive Board (EB) will discuss holding the 136th IOC Session remotely through a secure electronic system on Friday 17 July 2020, from 12 to 4 p.m. CEST; and the plan is for it to be live streamed.”
The Executive Board will hold their next meeting remotely on May 14 to discuss the agenda and organization of the IOC Session, including a secure electronic voting system.
The Tokyo Games scheduled for July 24 to August 9 were postponed on March 24 for next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To fight the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan has extended the state of emergency in the country with some ease at hand.
