Olympics-Tokyo organisers outline steps for 'simplified' Games

TOKYO, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Organisers of the Tokyo Olympics on Friday outlined dozens of measures to hold a simplified Summer Games next year, including a shorter opening period for training venues.

The Games, originally scheduled to start this summer, were postponed for a year in March by the International Olympic Committee and the Japanese government due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since then, organisers and government officials have been looking at ways to reduce costs, streamline the Games and safeguard athletes and spectators against the virus. (Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka; Editing by David Dolan)
