August 7, 2014

Organisers of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics are considering moving the sailing venue as part of a widening review into plans for the games.

As part of the Tokyo games, ed sailing was due to take place at the Wakasu Olympic Marina.

However, therapy due to the marina being within the approach zone for a runway at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, try those plans are expected to change.

Helicopters will need to fly above the venue to film the races and that would disrupt flights at the country’s busiest airport.

The sailing venue is the latest in a growing list of concerns for organisers of Tokyo 2020.

Venues for basketball and triathlon are among those also under review.

Tokyo Governor Yoichi Masuzoe has said the overall venue plans need to be revised because of concerns over rising costs.
