Judoka already named to Japan's 2020 Olympic team will not have to qualify again for the games that have been postponed until 2021, the All Japan Judo Federation decided Friday.

The body's development and executive committees, meeting online in an extraordinary session, rejected calls to select new members for the games that will not start until July 23, 2021. Instead, the committees settled on a policy of going with the 13 judoka who have been already selected.
