TOKYO -- Operators of venues for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics are renting out the facilities until they hit the spotlight next year, after the games were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Some venues are now available for events and training involving athletes. The operators hope that offering them for use instead of leaving them idle will help keep public attention on the summer games amid lingering uncertainty about their prospects.
