Tokyo hosts 4-country gymnastics meet to test COVID safety
What’s important is for Japanese government and Olympic officials to show that foreign athletes can enter the country safely and not spread COVID-19. This is another step in attempting to illustrate that Tokyo will be able to hold next year’s Olympics — even without a vaccine — in the midst of a pandemic. “I have no worries with the venue and there are no restrictions inside of the gym. They will involve 15,400 Olympic and Paralympic athletes and thousands of staff, judges, officials, media and broadcasters. Two-time defending Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura of Japan, who reported a positive test last week for COVID-19, subsequently tested negative several times.
