Tokyo, Nov 27 (Sputnik) The Tokyo Olympics Committee on Friday announced its revised test event calendar for the Olympics, which was postponed for one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the events slated to take place between March and May 2021.
“The new updated test event calendar covers test events for 18 disciplines … The test events will test three essential elements: the field of play (competition area) for each event, the use of technology, and workforce – with a particular focus on technical aspects including countermeasures against COVID-19,” the Tokyo Olympics Committee said in a press release.
