The 2020 Summer Olympics was not canceled, only postponed to a year later. It will be under the same name – Games of XXXII Olympiad – and probably in Tokyo. However, due to the 1xBet gambling site, many people think that it will not be held in Tokyo as the odds show us on the 2021 Olympic Summer Games Bets.
Games of XXXII Olympiad
The International Olympic Committee elected Tokyo as the host city of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games on 7th September 2013. This would be the second time when Tokyo has hosted the games, the first time was in 1964. Due to postponement, the opening ceremony will start on 23rd July 2021, almost exactly a year later than originally scheduled.
Every Olympics is a great opportunity for betting lovers so you can find several 2021 Olympic Summer Games Bets already. Probably we can expect more and more bets on online gambling sites in Japan.
Difficulties for the Competitors
The Games would have been attended by more than 12 000 athletes from approximately 207 countries, who have built their lives and careers around the Summer Olympic Games. Now all the athletes, coaches, sponsors and television partners are trying to figure out how to grapple with the delay. Making the situation more difficult is the fact that this is the first time that an Olympics has been postponed. Unfortunately, the spectators of the Games are not positive on the 2021 Olympic Summer Games Bets.
However, this situation is not affecting just the coaches and athletes. It is a hard time for the IOC as well:
I am confident that, working together with the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee, the Tokyo metropolitan government, the Japanese government and all our stakeholders, we can master this unprecedented challenge. – Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee.
2021 Olympic Summer Games Bets are Divisive
Are spectators negative because of disappointment? Despite Bach’s confidence, people are pessimists on the 2021 Olympic Summer Games Bets. According to the 1xBet gambling site, the odds of the “Opening Ceremony to take place in Tokyo on 23rd July 2021.” are only 1.3. However, the odds for the opposite are 4.3.
We hope that coaches and athletes will be able to adjust the one-year slip.
