International Olympics Committee (IOC) on Tuesday decided that the Games will retain its names - Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics 2020 - despite its postponement until the summer of 2021 owing to the coronavirus pandemic. After weeks of discussion and contemplation, the organisers of the summer Games decided to shift the Olympics by a year, hence relieving the athletes of training amid these tough times. 

"The leaders agreed that the Olympic Games in Tokyo could stand as a beacon of hope to the world during these troubled times and that the Olympic flame could become the light at the end of the tunnel in which the world finds itself at present. Therefore, it was agreed that the Olympic flame will stay in Japan. It was also agreed that the Games will keep the name Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020," the IOC statement read.
