TOKYO -- The Diving World Cup will take place in Tokyo next month after being postponed from its original dates this month, but other Olympic aquatic qualifying events are still in doubt as the International Swimming Federation and Japanese government remain embroiled in a dispute over COVID-19 related measures.

The diving qualifier, one of the aquatic qualifying events to be held in Japan, will be rescheduled to May 1 through May 6. It was originally slated to begin on April 18.
