Will the Olympics be in 2024?
Paris is to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games, under the motto “Made for Sharing” (“Venez a Partager”). The city, which had endured failed bids for the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics, was confirmed by the International Olympic Committee as the 2024 venue in September 2017.

What if Japan cancels Olympics?
The prospects of an IOC-led cancellation are practically nil. The organisation depends on selling broadcasting rights for almost 75% of its income, with another 18% coming from 15 top sponsors. According to one estimate, the IOC could lose about $3.5-$4bn in broadcast revenue if the Tokyo Games were called off.
How many countries will compete in the 2021 Olympics?
