NEWS: IOC says rule banning protests will remain in place at 2021 Tokyo Olympics


The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has confirmed that athletes are still banned from protesting at the Olympic Games after several
sports decided to allow protests in the wake of George Floyd's death.

The IOC told the Telegraph the guidelines were still in place and that
it would not speculate on "hypothetical cases 13 months before the
Olympic Games".

Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter states "no kind of demonstration or
political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in any Olympic
sites, venues or other areas."

According to the publication, athletes who breach the rule are subject
to discipline on a case-by-case basis and the IOC issued guidelines in
January clarifying that banned protests include taking a knee and other
gestures.

Anti-racism movements are expected to be discussed at an IOC executive board meeting on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.
