Tokyo Games organizing committee chief Yoshiro Mori said Thursday he expects to see big changes to the men’s marathon schedule following the International Olympic Committee’s decision to move the road races to Sapporo.

“It’s impossible (to hold the men’s marathon on Aug. 9) as there is the closing ceremony. The schedule will change greatly,” Mori said of the event, which has often been held on the last day of the Olympics.
