Olympic Minister appointed President of the Tokyo Games – Fil info – Tokyo 2020

Japanese Minister of the Olympics Seiko Hashimoto, 56, was appointed Thursday president of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Organizing Committee, replacing Yoshiro Mori who had to resign last Friday after sexist comments that caused a scandal. “I will spare no effort for the success of the Tokyo Games,” said Hashimoto immediately after her appointment, which comes five months from the scheduled opening of the event postponed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She had presented her resignation from the government to Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga shortly before.
