The Chef de Mission for the National Olympic Committee of Sierra Leone Unisa Deen Kargbo has said to AYV sports that even though the International Olympic Committee has given the go-ahead for athletic associations to prepare for the July 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, their intention for now is for a postponement of the games. Unisa Deen Kargbo made this comment following reports that the international body might cancel the games or not over the threat of the Coronavirus. 

Over growing concerns on reported cases of the COVID-19 virus in some African countries and the globe at large according to the BBC, the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games has been thrown into doubt as Canada is one of the major countries to withdraw their athletes from the tournament. But how has it been on the side of the National Olympic Committee of Sierra Leone in terms of preparations for the games? Unisa Deen Kargbo is the Chef de Mission for the National Olympic Committee. He speaks on the position of the NOC as preparations are ongoing.

According to Unisa Deen Kargbo, nine  associations will make the list to represent Sierra Leone on qualification for the July 24th 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. He speaks more on how cooperative the associations have been in the event the games do go ahead as scheduled.

This year’s Olympic Games is expected to commence on 24th July to the 9th August in Tokyo, Japan with over forty disciplines participating in the games.

President of the Confederation of African Football, Ahmad Ahmad on Friday shared his Coronavirus message which ranged from administrative measures by the body, to decision on competitions and Africa’s role in combating the pandemic.
