“We have a very huge challenge now, because we have to put the full focus for the next couple of months, more than a year from now on the organization of Tokyo 2020. At the same time, Beijing 2022 is approaching and Dakar 2022 are also approaching. This is a big challenge,” Bach said in a teleconference with nearly 400 reporters around the world on Wednesday.
