  1. Athletic Worlds move to 2022 Euros were going to be just before Olympics anyway so no different to 2020. Team sports that have qualified stay the same. I see the biggest issue being countries that have selected athletes for sports that may no longer be the number 1 selection in a years time. one Australian i can think of is Chloe Esposito modern pentathlon is having a baby so didn't qualify but in a year she may be able to qualify.

    If anyone is in Tokyo on here i would love to get my hands on some 2020 merchandise! happy to pay a bit extra plus postage.

  2. What about athletes and teams that have already qualified do they keep that qualification or have to re qualify? Some would be close to retirement and might not be suitable to compete in a years time? 

    Will my current tickets still be valid? will my non refundable hotel just move my booking? (i already know the answer to this one i have blown $8000 thats for sure)

    In 24 hours i have gone from no spectators to full cancellation as my predictions. Bloody China!!!!

  3. I'm starting to think that the games will be held but with no spectators. Japan has already shut schools, Italy is in full lock down and most major sports events cancelled or run without spectators i think its they logical chose. 

    I'm confident i will get a full refund of my tickets but not so sure im going to be able to get a refund on my non refundable hotel and travel insurance will not cover it.

  4. check out and join a facebook group Tokyo 2020 Olympics Planning they have a google doc going with tickets people want to buy and are selling. They also post ticket updates if any become available plus hotel booking tips and travel tips. Someone mentioned Hotel Mystays had rates and thats how i booked my accommodation.

    Twitter #2012tweeps is still a good one to check out lots of UK/Europe people still using it about tickets. People to follow @matt_shoreditch and @volshy who i think in on games bids and where i first heard of ticket swaps at 2012.

    Thanks to twitter and #2012tweeps i swapped a water polo ticket for an athletics ticket.
