An update on when the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be held is expected to be made within the next three weeks, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) told countries including Bermuda on a conference call.
www.islandstats.com can confirm that International Federations were given a similar timeline during a call with the IOC.
The IOC discussed the timelines for the Games postponement announcement until no later than the summer of 2021 amid growing international concern over the coronavirus pandemic, with National Olympic Committees (NOCs).
The timing of the Games is the most pressing issue for a taskforce established by the IOC and Tokyo 2020 to navigate the complicated challenges stemming from the postponement.
Confirming the exact dates for the first Olympic Games to be postponed in history will also pave the way for other key areas to be addressed, including venues and qualification.
IOC President Thomas Bach said earlier this week that there are "thousands" of questions following the decision to delay the Games, none of which can be answered until the new dates are set.
