(FOX NEWS) – Amid mounting calls from athletes and officials for a postponement, the Olympic Games may be put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Four weeks will be taken to weigh options and to plan different scenarios for the July 24-Aug. 9 games in Tokyo, the International Olympic Committee announced Sunday.
“These scenarios relate to modifying existing operational plans for the Games to go ahead on 24 July 2020, and also for changes to the start date of the Games,” the IOC said.
Though canceling the Tokyo Olympics is not an option, a delay until later this year or in 2021 is possible, according to officials.
