Judo_Olympics_Tokyo_2021
It has been some crazy weeks in the World lately. After many cancellations of the IJF World Tour, the IOC took the final decision on postponing the Olympic Games until 2021. A few days later, they announced that the Olympics will take place on almost the same date starting July 23rd 2021, ending August 8th.

We were looking forward to the Olympics in 2020 seeing a big IPPON GEAR Team entering the Olympic mat for the first time. However, we will have to wait another year. But how will the next year look like? There are big question marks especially about the qualification period. Our athletes do everything in their power to train hard at home and stay in shape while the world recovers. IJF President, Marius Vizer, confirmed that there will be at least the same amount of qualification tournaments included in the qualification period as before the breakout of the pandemic. However, everything depends on the health situation in the world. Mr. Vizer reassured everyone that it will be a fair qualification process.

We will keep you updated on the qualification process to make sure, our athletes are informed as good as possible. It’s a tough time, both mentally and physically, to stay in the unknown. But we all have our eyes on one certain thing: The Olympic Games in 2021 and we are very excited to see our team enter the Olympic Arena next year in Tokyo.
But for now, please stay home and stay safe.
