Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic organizers said Wednesday that a Paralympic Boccia test event will be held without athletes due to concerns over the current coronavirus outbreak.

The event, originally scheduled as the Japan Para Championships Boccia and set to start on Friday at Ariake Gymnastics Centre, was postponed on Feb. 20. Instead, a smaller number of domestic athletes were expected to participate in a test.
