LAUSANNE – The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has punished the DPRK Olympic Committee for not participating in the Tokyo Olympics by suspending it until the end of 2022. North Korea’s expedition will not be able to start in February at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

The DPRK withdrew from Tokyo in early April due to fears of a coronavirus pandemic. “The DPRK Olympic Committee was the only one that did not participate in the Tokyo Olympics. Based on this unilateral decision, the National Olympic Committee is suspended until the end of 2022,” said IOC President Thomas Bach at a press conference.

By refusing to start the Games, the DPRK has violated Rule 27.3 of the Olympic Charter, which requires each National Olympic Committee to participate in the Games by sending its athletes.

In addition to the ban on starting the expedition to the Beijing Olympics, the DPRK Olympic Committee will lose its financial contributions from the IOC during its suspension and must definitively say goodbye to the money it has so far been withheld due to international sanctions.

However, the IOC said that if some North Korean athletes secure qualifications for Beijing, they will be dealt with individually by the IOC Executive Board. The International Olympic Committee has also reserved the right to reconsider the length of the suspension.

The IOC also monitors developments in Afghanistan

After the Executive Committee meeting, Bach emphasized that the IOC is also monitoring developments in Afghanistan: “We are monitoring the situation very closely and, in the event of new facts, we will act in accordance with the Olympic Charter. We will ensure that the principles of equality are respected, in this case especially with regard to women and girls.” The DPA informed about it.
