The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday suspended the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) from the Olympic Games until the end of 2022 after it failed to send a team to the Tokyo Olympics.

IOC President Thomas Bach said the IOC reserves the right to make decisions on individual athletes from the DPRK who qualify for Beijing 2022 and to reconsider the duration of the country’s suspension.
