North Korea would not participate in the Tokyo Olympics


The country has said it will ignore this summer’s Olympics to “protect players from the global public health crisis caused by Covid-19,” according to a report published Tuesday in North Korean media DPRK Sports, a website devoted to sports affairs.

The decision was taken by the DPRK Olympic Committee, which held a video conference with committee members and sports officials on March 25 in the capital Pyongyang, DPRK Sports reported.

The Games are currently scheduled for July 23 through August 8. The Paralympic Games will follow, from August 24 to September 5.
Organizers were forced to postpone the Olympics for the first time in the event’s history to March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Last month, the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee said international spectators would be denied entry to Japan due to the prevalence of the coronavirus at home and abroad.
