Either move the long distance races to a different time of year, and keep them in Tokyo, or move them out of Tokyo, if the IOC insists that they must be held during summer. It is very logical.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Tokyo median temperatures in July 30 deg max, 23 deg min (10/8 days rain). August temps 31 deg max/24 deg min (8 days rain)

Sapporo median temps in July 25 deg max, 17 deg min (8 days rain) - August 26 deg max 18 deg min (8 days rain).

No contest. Good move.
