    Technically yes because they were cancelled during WW1 and 2 while this is simply a postponement and the games will go ahead in Tokyo next year instead rather than being cancelled altogether.

    Yes, but they have been canceled altogether three times in the past.

    The games have never been postponed, they have been cancelled 3 times, in 1916 because of World War 1,and in 1940 & 1944 because of WW11.

    No. In fact, the 1916 Olympics was cancelled due to World War I and both the 1940 and 1944 games were cancelled due to World War II.
