Thomas vickett, President of ITTF, said: since table tennis first entered the Olympic family in 1988, ITTF is a faithful partner of the IOC. During this period, the International Table Tennis Federation has developed rapidly, and table tennis has been growing as an Olympic sport. Now, we fully support the decision made by the International Olympic Committee today. We know that its not easy to organize the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which are four-year competitions.
We can imagine how much effort has been made by the IOC Executive Committee, staff, the Tokyo organizing committee and the Tokyo municipal government since September 2013, said Raul Carlin, Secretary General of ITTF. The novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic has spread throughout the world, especially in recent weeks. They first focused on the best plan to ensure the safety and health of athletes, staff and other related parties. However, the decision to postpone the Games sends a message of hope. The Olympic and Paralympic Games will still be held, and ITTF will continue to fully support the International Olympic Committee and the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee to hold the most grand Olympic Games ever. In the favorable circumstances, the ITTF and the IOC will work closely together. In the difficult moment, the ITTF will give full support.
