[CBC뉴스] 도쿄 올림픽 관계자는 23일 COVID-19로 인해 축소될 내년 올림픽 개막식 및 폐막식을 재 설계 할 새로운 크리에이티브 팀을 발표했다.
새로운 크리에이티브 팀은 이전에 개막 및 폐막 행사를 담당했던 7 명의 감독 중 한 명인 사사키 히로시가 이끌게된다. 원래 올 여름에 시작될 예정이었던 올림픽은 국제 스포츠 달력을 심각하게 방해 한 코로나 바이러스 전염병으로 인해 1 년 연기되었다.
Tokyo Olympics officials on Wednesday (December 23) announced a new creative team that will be responsible for redesigning the opening and closing ceremonies at next year's Games, which will be pared back due to COVID-19 safeguards.
The new creative team will be headed by Hiroshi Sasaki, who was one of seven directors previously responsible for the opening and closing events. The Games, originally scheduled to start this summer, were postponed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has severely disrupted the international sporting calendar.
Since then, organisers and government officials have been looking at ways to cut costs, simplify the Games and safeguard athletes and spectators. Still, there has been lingering doubt about the viability of holding a large-scale, global event as the pandemic continues to rage.
Although the planners were short on details, Sasaki said he pictured the ceremonies as an opportunity to show the world a message of "breakthrough or hope" during the pandemic.
