Tokyo 2020 chief executive Mutō dismisses report on Olympic costs

Tokyo 2020 chief executive Toshirō Mutō has dismissed a study by Oxford academics on the cost of the Olympics.

The paper suggested Tokyo 2020 would be the most expensive Games in history, putting the cost at $15.84 billion (£12.25 billion/€13.34 billion). Olympic fans can book Olympic Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

This does not include the financial impact of the postponement of Tokyo 2020 until 2021, caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking after the latest meeting of the Tokyo 2020 Executive Board, Mutō rejected the claims. 

“There are no financial grounds for the numbers revealed in that report,” he said, as reported by Reuters.

“I am not in a position to comment on that currently – I am simply confused by this.”

The last budget given by Tokyo 2020 was in December 2019 and put the cost at $12.6 billion (£9.8 billion/€10.6 billion).

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has already said the postponement will cost them around $800 million (£620 million/€670 million), while Japanese organizers have yet to announce what their share will be.

Simplification measures are being discussed to reduce the cost of the Games, including those relating to the number of people involved, infrastructure, and Ceremonies.

The exact cost of the items will not be available until December.

The 39-page study – Regression to the Tail: Why the Olympics Blow Up – was carried out by academics at the University of Oxford and headed up by Professor Bent Flyvbjerg. 

It focused on the sports-related costs of hosting the Games, excluding transport and tourism infrastructure that is often lumped in, and found that “every Olympics since 1960 has run over budget”.

It notably suggested that the IOC should be obliged to cover 10 percent of any Olympic Games cost overrun, arguing that currently “there is little alignment between incentives to keep costs down and making decisions about cost”.

The IOC has been critical of the paper, however, claiming that it took a “fundamentally flawed approach” by mixing the budget for the organization of the Games and the infrastructure budgets of the host city, region, and country.

Flyvbjerg has since written to IOC President Thomas Bach with a point-by-point rebuttal of criticisms of the paper.

He is hoping to guide the host nation to the gold medal to boost spirits following the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused the delay of the Olympics.

“I’m scouting a lot of players,” said Inaba.

“Due to the COVID-19 limitations, I’m not showing up at the venues very often, but I watch a lot of television.

“I’m confident that the Games will happen next summer.

“I want to prepare well for the Games.

“My intention is winning a gold medal; I want to share the joy with all our fans.”

Tokyo Olympic 2020 should be held at any cost Japan Olympic minister

TOKYO: Tokyo 2020 should be held next year at any cost given athletes efforts to be ready, Japan’s Olympic minister said Tuesday, a day after the IOC’s John Coates told AFP that the postponed Games would go ahead in 2021 with or without COVID. Olympic fans can book Olympic Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

“For the Games next year, athletes are continuing to work hard in the environments they find themselves in. So I feel we have to hold it at any cost,” Seiko Hashimoto said when asked about International Olympic Committee vice-president Coates’s remarks.

“I think Mr. Coates felt reassured that the Tokyo Games can be held with further close coordination of efforts,” she added.

Coates on Monday told AFP in an exclusive interview that he was confident the delayed Games would open as planned next year, vowing they will be the “Games that conquered COVID”.

“It will take place with or without COVID. The Games will start on July 23 next year,” said Coates, who heads the IOC’s Coordination Commission for the Tokyo Games.

“The Games were going to be, their theme, the Reconstruction Games after the devastation of the tsunami,” he said, referring to the catastrophic 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan.

“Now very much this will be the Games that conquered COVID, the light at the end of the tunnel.”

A spokesman for the Tokyo 2020 organizers declined to comment directly on whether they agreed with Coates’s confident assessment.

But Masa Takaya said the remarks showed “that the IOC team is fully committed to delivering the Games next year”.

In a landmark decision, the 2020 Olympics were postponed because of the coronavirus, and they are now set to open on July 23, 2021.

But Japan’s borders are still largely closed to foreign visitors and a vaccine is months or even year’s away, feeding speculation about whether the Games are feasible at all.

Officials have made clear that another delay would not be possible, and there are signs that public enthusiasm in Japan is waning.

A poll this summer found just one in four Japanese want them to go ahead next year, with most backing either another postponement or cancellation.

A taskforce including organizers and Japanese government officials that will develop coronavirus countermeasures met for the first time this week.

Takaya said the organizers would continue carefully monitoring the pandemic’s evolution and “make every effort in coordination with all relevant organizations to ensure a safe and secure Games”.

He says there must be an opportunity for a training camp by at least the first week of October.

“The boys have not had proper practice since March because of the lockdown, so I would suggest holding a camp as soon as possible,” said Hussain to Pakistani publication The News.

“If they can start it in early October it will be good.

“As a coach, I know that a minimum of three months will be required for bringing the boys into shape.

“I don’t know how fit they are and how much they have trained during the lockdown.”

Previously, the Pakistan Boxing Federation (PBF) secretary spoke to The News, stating that it hoped to host a training camp for the qualifiers after the National Championship in December.

However, Hussain believes that this is too late.

“You know Olympic qualifiers are a tough event and for that foreign nations work for years,” he added.

“We have time now, but delaying would be dangerous for us as we then would not be able to prepare solidly.

“The state should help PBF in undertaking the task which is very important for Pakistan’s boxing.”

Pakistan competed at the Asian qualifiers in Amman in March before the COVID-19 pandemic but failed to qualify any athletes.

The world qualifier was scheduled for Paris earlier this year before being postponed.

Hussain points to Islamabad Sports Complex and the Army Physical and Training Centre in Abbottabad as possible venues to host a camp.

“The world qualifying round will be tough and we will need our boys to train with some top boxers from other countries,” added Hussain.

PBF secretary Col Nasir Tung said last month that they had requested hosting a training camp in Jordan later in the year.

Pakistan last competed in Olympic boxing at Athens 2004.
