BEIJING – The International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, together with Beijing 2022 and Dakar 2022, will present a huge challenge towards the governing body of the Olympic movement.

“We have a very huge challenge now, because we have to put the full focus for the next couple of months, more than a year from now on the organization of Tokyo 2020. At the same time, Beijing 2022 is approaching and Dakar 2022 are also approaching. This is a big challenge,” Bach said in a teleconference with nearly 400 reporters around the world on Wednesday.

“We would have to see now in the months to come what this means and how to organize this in a way which is feasible for the staff which is already working extremely hard.”
