·2-min read

SIGN UP NOW

A year ago, the pandemic forced Japan to delay the Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Now, keeping to its original name, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is set to take place from 23 July until 8 August 2021. But with that comes a variety of concerns from athletes, health organisations, and the general public. What’s being done to ensure that it does not cause another outbreak? The Tokyo Organising Committee has said that preparations are underway, and that they are determined to host a safe and secure event.

On 17 July (Saturday) at 11am (GMT+8), Marina Mahathir speaks to Kaori Sasaki, who is part of the Tokyo Organising Committee, about all things Olympics. They will also chat about Ms Sasaki’s experience as a TV reporter and how this allowed her to travel the world.
