Based on the continued information being received from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Canadian Olympic Committee recognizes that due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is not safe for athletes to train in their ordinary training environments to prepare for the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Games.
Therefore, for the health and safety of our Canadian athletes, Canada will not be in a position to send a team to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games starting on July 24 or the immediate period thereafter. The Canadian Olympic Committee will continue to encourage the International Olympic Committee to postpone the Tokyo Games for one year.
Golf Canada is fully aligned with the position of the Canadian Olympic Committee and will continue to work with our Olympic sport partners to ensure that the health and safety of athletes is the number one priority.
