New International Paralympic Committee President Andrew Parsons on Thursday declared himself “generally very happy” with preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics, and believes “everything is coming together” to make the event a success.

“Generally we are very happy with the progress made and the way that the preparations are being handled by the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the national government,” Parsons said in Tokyo at the start of a two-day review of preparations, his first since taking over as IPC president last month.
