An entirely new challenge greets the International Olympic Committee and Tokyo: Pulling off the Games in 2021 instead of in 2020 , as originally Though officials did not specify new dates for the Tokyo Games, they were originally planned for July 24 to Aug. 9, so a shift of exactly 12 months

The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 have been postponed , the International Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee Speaking to reporters on a teleconference call afterwards, IOC President Bach said he had not discussed details of the new Games timeframe with the prime minister.

Diver Dan Goodfellow has been dealing with a new normal for longer than most and feels Olympic postponement will help groove his transition from platform to springboard, writes Tom Harle.

The 23-year-old has dropped from the ten-metre tower – where he won bronze with Tom Daley at Rio 2016 – to the three-metre board with reigning Olympic champion Jack Laugher.

Goodfellow admits the switch has been a shock to the system but an end to his injury issues and love for tough targets means he’s raring to go for the rearranged Tokyo Games.

“It’s been tough to have the Olympics postponed but it’s not actually a bad thing for me,” said the Cambridge-born star, now based in Leeds.

The International Olympic Committee has paved the way for the Tokyo Games to be postponed “We would welcome the IOC making a definitive decision soon, to bring clarity to all those involved.” “On the other hand, there is a dramatic increase in cases and new outbreaks of Covid-19 in different

But then the games were postponed for a year, on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Tokyo 2020 is now Tokyo 2021. If we were disappointed about the postponement , we couldn't imagine how they must be feeling, so we caught up with nine athletes reckoning with what this extended pause means.

“I’ve only been doing springboard for two years and most of our rivals have been doing it their whole lives.

“An extra year until the Olympics is more time for me to get better and more time to get used to the springboard. It's a blessing in disguise to get prepared.

“I do miss going up on the platform. Technically, it's easier for me and my body knows it better than the springboard.

“But when I jumped from that height I had big problems with triceps and shoulder injuries, so being able to train and not having to worry about missing days is a huge relief.

“I’m really enjoying the 3m at the minute, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed the sport more. It’s a new challenge and there are lots of things I need to improve on.”

It really is all change for the Commonwealth Games gold medallist and during lockdown, he took the decision with his partner Lydia to buy a house in the Leeds area.

A postponement or delay to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo is “inconceivable,” the Japanese minister responsible for the games said, responding to comments made by a member of the organizing committee which suggested a possible delay of up to two years as the coronavirus continues to spread.

Goodfellow stayed with Lydia’s parents during lockdown and carved out a home workout space in their basement, but the couple quickly sought independence and their own place.

Goodfellow is relishing a base of his own to launch into the new Olympic year – although learned while buying that, as in his sport, preparation is king.

“Home's really important to me, I need somewhere where I'm going to be able to relax, somewhere I can put my feet up after a tough day of training and put my mind at ease,” he said.

“It's so important to switch off outside of a diving environment and it was a great moment when we got the keys on our own place.

“Preparation in sport is everything and the more you do in the lead-up to a competition, the better you’ll perform. You have to prepare so much to buy a house and we learned a few lessons there!”

Goodfellow will prepare in earnest to help defend Laugher’s Olympic title – Britain’s first gold medal in the sport – that he won with Chris Mears four years ago.
