“Due to the growing number of countries affected by the COVID-19 virus, the first three meetings of the 2020 Wanda Diamond League season, scheduled for April 17 in Qatar, 9th and 16th May 2020 in China, cannot be held as planned,” the Diamond League said in a statement.

The Diamond League said the”decision was made in close consultation with organising committees, local authorities and sports governing bodies.”

Qatar suspended incoming flights for at least two weeks, and the government banned all national and international events for 30 days.

“While the number of new infections is now decreasing in China, the fact remains that preparations for the meetings have been set back by several weeks,” the release said.
It also said, “the closed borders and travel restrictions make it impossible to organise top-level international competitions.”

The Tokyo Olympics are to be postponed until 2021 after talks between Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe, and the International Olympic Committee president, Thomas Bach, led to confirmation of a decision made inevitable by the coronavirus pandemic.
