By Pti

Paris, March 27: Athletes who had already qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics before they were postponed will keep their places when the showpiece takes place in 2021, according to sources.

Around 57 per cent of the 11,000 scheduled participants for Tokyo had already made sure of taking part when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) pushed the Games back to 2021 due to the coronavirus on Tuesday (March 24).

The IOC and international sports federations held a teleconference on Thursday (March 26) where it was decided to respect the qualification process, the sources told AFP.
