KoPa QUEENS OLYMPICS DEBUT DEALT A MAJOR SETBACK

The KoPa Queens dream of featuring at the Olympics games for the very first time has suffered a major drawback after a decision by the International Olympic Committee to push the event to a later date.

The IOC’s executive board met on Sunday for an emergency meeting amid mounting pressure from athletes and national Olympic committees for the Games to be delayed because of the coronavirus crisis.

A concrete decision will be made in the next four weeks as the committee is stepping up its “scenario planning” for the Tokyo 2020 Games including a possible postponement.

“The next four weeks will provide time to see if the global health situation improves, while giving a window of opportunity to look into different scenarios should the dates of the Games need to be changed,” IPC President Andrew Parsons said.

The Zambia women’s national football team qualified to the Olympics on away goals after drawing against the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon on aggregate 4-4.

The tournament was set to start on the 24th July 2020 but it looks like they will need to wait a little longer for their cameo, even up to next year as speculations suggest.
