-TOKYO (AP) - The cost of the postponement for the Tokyo Olympics could reach at least $2.8 billion. That’s according to figures released by the Tokyo organizing committee, the Tokyo city government and Japan’s national government. The numbers are in line with estimates that have been made in Japan since the Olympics were postponed eight months ago. They are now set to open on July 23, 2021.
