2020 Olympics & Paralympics have been postponed

Due to the growth of the pandemic and the spread, later on Monday, the World Health Organization raised the alarm to the world, by saying that the spread of the virus was accelerating, and that they wanted to address the G20 leaders. We then agreed on a phone call between Prime Minister Abe and me scheduled for today. During this phone call, we agreed, given these circumstances, on the following: that the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo and the Paralympic Games, must be rescheduled to a later date beyond 2020, but not later than summer 2021, to safeguard the health of the athletes, and everybody involved in the Olympic Games, and the international community. We also agreed that the Olympic flame will stay in Japan, as a symbol of our commitment, and also as a symbol of hope. We will also keep, for these symbolic reasons, the name Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

-- IOC President Thomas Bach

This will affect a lot of people and a lot of things in a lot of large and small ways.

World masters games was scheduled for Japan in 2021. That will likely be moved or cancelled now, bummer.
