British Athletes Commission Statement – For Immediate Release
The British Athletes Commission welcomes the confirmation of the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Whilst this is hugely disappointing news for athletes around the world, the right decision has been made. Public health must come first.
Working closely with the BOA and BPA Athlete Commissions and key stakeholders, our priority is to provide guidance to our athlete members at this time, ensuring that once they’ve processed what this decision means for them, they have access to the right independent, confidential advice and support.
