Next year’s Olympic Marathon and Race Walk events are being moved from Tokyo to the northern city of Sapporo.
The move is aimed at avoiding the extreme summer heat.
Representatives of four bodies involved in organizing the 2020 Tokyo Olympics met today to discuss the issue.
Details and logistics of the new route remain unclear, but the International Olympic Committee is expected to hold a news conference soon.
