Tokyo Olympic organizers postpone water polo test event

TOKYO (AP) — Tokyo Olympic organizers have postponed a water polo test event set for this weekend. Organizers say the test event might be rescheduled for May or June. Reports say technical officials were unable to go to Japan because of strict procedures to enter the country. Organizers did not confirm that but say it was necessary to postpone “considering the schedule of each stakeholder under the current global COVID-19 conditions.” The news comes less than four months before the opening of the postponed Olympics and could be a setback as organizers and the IOC attempts to hold the Tokyo Games in the middle of a pandemic.
