24/09/2020




Serhat TUNAR -TDO- As it is known, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Committee canceled the Olympics due to a Coronavirus outbreak and postponed it until the summer of 2021. Coronavirus testing will be mandatory for foreign athletes who will participate in the Tokyo Olympics, the committee announced in a new statement.

The committee also announced that it would be enough for athletes who will participate in the Olympics to have coronavirus tests come back negative, in which case the 15-day quarantine, which is in normal procedure, would not be imposed.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, who met with International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach on the issue, said that local authorities approach the issue with sensitivity and that the same procedure will be applied to Japanese athletes who train abroad.
