The organization is hoping that the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee will advocate on their behalf for the change

USA Swimming, the national governing body of professional swimming in America, wants the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo delayed at least one year in response to the coronavirus global pandemic, according to a report from USA Today. The organization is hoping that the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee will advocate on their behalf for this change.

USA Swimming CEO Tim Hinchey sent a letter to USOPC CEO Sarah Hirshland saying he has “watched our athletes’ worlds be turned upside down and watched them struggle to find ways to continue to prepare and train – many for the biggest competitive opportunity of their lives” as the threat of COVID-19 has grown.

“Everyone has experienced unimaginable disruptions, mere months before the Olympic Games, which calls into question the authenticity of a level playing field for all,” Hinchey added. “Our athletes are under tremendous pressure, stress and anxiety, and their mental health and wellness should be among the highest priorities.”

The letter was sent with “overwhelming support” from USA Swimming’s top officials, swimmers and coaches, according to USA Today. Hinchey formally requested in the letter that the Games be postponed until 2021, to assure that athletes can properly prepare for their respective qualifiers and events.
