Bridgestone Statement on the Decision to Postpone the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020

"Bridgestone supports the decision made by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Games organizers to postpone the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. We believe this is the right decision to protect public health and the well-being of global athletes who have sacrificed so much to chase their dreams. Our commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic Movements does not change with this announcement and we look forward to helping these Games unite the world in a celebration of sport and the human spirit after this difficult time. We will continue working collaboratively with the IOC, the International Paralympic Committee, Games organizers and our various partners to determine the best path forward and adjust our plans accordingly as more details around the new countdown to Tokyo 2020 become available.”
