Canada decides to withdraw from 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo

Justin Trudeau

A decision has been taken by the Canadian Olympic Committee and Canadian Paralympic Committee to withdraw from 2020 Olympic Games after consulting athletes, sports groups, and the Canadian government.

In the decision taken on Sunday, they "urgently called" on the International Olympic Committee, International Paralympic Committee and World Health Organization, to postpone the games for a year.

In their statement, they said:

"While we recognise the inherent complexities around a postponement, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our athletes and the world community."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters on Monday: "This was absolutely the right call and everyone should follow their lead."
