    LONDON, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Team GB Chef de Mission Mark England said on Wednesday he was confident the Tokyo Olympics would go ahead this year even if they would be a different Games due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    "We are hugely confident of the Games going ahead in the summer," he told Reuters after announcing the selection of four shooting competitors. "We certainly wouldn't be announcing athletes if that wasn't the case." (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Ossian Shine)
