Tokyo Olympics live broadcast: Ten British team athletes are quarantined, Coco Gauff tested positive for Covid-19
Good Morning Olympic Fans
The British team’s athletes admitted that they shuddered at the “terrible” fear of Covid ping undermining their Olympic dreams.
So far, five athletes have tested positive for the virus, undermining their ambitions for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and dozens of athletes, including six British track stars, have been quarantined.
Daniel Rodden, who was half a mile away, admitted: “This is terrible. I feel sorry for all those who have been quarantined.
“This is the Olympics. You really work very hard and you are in very good shape.
“But being locked in a room will weaken your confidence and preparation. A little worried that the same thing will happen to us.
“These people were on the plane the day before, so we worry that the same thing might happen to the people on our flight.”
At the same time, the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony composer Koyamada Keigo has resigned from his role in the Olympics after boasting that he bullied a disabled boy.
The musician named Cornelius made this statement in a magazine interview, which aroused anger in Japan.
After he was hired by the organizers of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, articles from the 1990s resurfaced, including the statement that he forced a mentally disabled student to eat his own feces and masturbate in front of others during school.
The 52-year-old Koyamada apologized when the interview reappeared, and now he has resigned from the team that created the Friday ceremony.
He said: “I have painfully realized that accepting my participation in the music activities of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics lacks consideration for many people.
“I apologize from the bottom of my heart.”
Finally, the tennis hero Naomi Osaka appeared on the cover of the famous American magazine “Sports Illustrated” before the Olympics.
The 23-year-old player will return to the game after a mid-season break by participating in the Tokyo Olympics.
Japanese star Osaka was included on the cover of the SI swimsuit issue before participating in the Olympics in her hometown.
SI Swimsuit Issue is an annual magazine featuring female athletes and celebrity swimsuit models.
Cover photos are well-known in American culture. In recent years, Ronda Rousey and Alex Morgan have all appeared on stage.
SI Swimsuit editor-in-chief MJ Day said: “There is no doubt that Naomi is one of the best athletes in the world, and the cover point is obvious.
“She has been fighting for the title during her growing years and is preparing to participate in the Olympics.
“But we celebrate Naomi’s enthusiasm, strength and strength, and she is committed to constantly breaking down barriers in equality, social justice and mental health.”
