John Coates, Chair of the IOC Coordination Commission Tokyo 2020, send a letter to stakeholders of the Olympic movement.
“Together with our Japanese partners and friends we are now entering into the operational delivery of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. Having just completed the Opening Plenary session of the final Coordination Commission meeting, as the Chair of the Commission, I felt that it was important to inform you directly about the latest developments.
Our objective throughout has been to organise safe and secure Olympic Games, and we are working in close partnership with our Japanese colleagues to deliver this goal. As President Bach noted in today’s meeting: “With just 65 days to go until the Opening Ceremony, we are now very delivery-focused. The athletes from all around the world are grateful to Japan for their diligent preparations, and are looking forward to safe and secure Olympic and Paralympic Games where they can finally shine.”
The President confirmed that as many as 75 per cent of the residents of the Olympic Village are already vaccinated or have secured vaccination. And we have good reason to believe that this figure will be well over 80 per cent at the time of the Games…”
Because the Olympics are a complex event that requires a large amount of logistics and risk management, the International Olympic Committee, the host city of Tokyo, the Japanese government and all institutions associated with the organization are making great efforts to ensure that the entire process goes with maximum control and security – to make the Games a success.
