It is the cutting-edge of Tokyo 2020 Olympic test events to highlight concerns over the sizzling summer temperatures that can be expected at next year’s July 24-Aug. 9 Games.
Rising temperatures have killed at least 57 people across Japan since late July, highlighting the possible health hazard to athletes and fans. Tokyo 2020 spokesman Masa Takaya said lessons would be learned from the triathlon event.
“The International Triathlon Union informed Tokyo 2020 Olympic that a broad review is necessary soon after the competitions this week. Tokyo 2020 Olympics’ partnership with the International Triathlon Union led to the implementation of measures to fight summer heat, including change of races start time, reviewed heat stress protocols, specially trained peoples and extra water stations on the course.”
In this deference, we will continue to work closely together with the team. The swimming and cycling segments remained the same after the International Triathlon Union estimated the water quality and temperature in the Odaiba Marine Park course to be within regulation. Thursday’s triathlon race, though, is another setback for Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizers, following a difficult period of test events.
Several athletes were treated for heatstroke at the 2019 World Rowing Junior Championships in Tokyo, which was another test event. There were also complaints from spectators at the lack of protection from the sun, as the venue was constructed with the roof only covering about half of the 2,000 seats.
The decision was made in 2016 to reduce the size of the roof at the newly-built venue as an economizing measure by Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
“We will not be changing the venue in any way and will not be increasing the size of the stand cover before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics”.
At the swimming marathon test event last weekend, also held at Odaiba Marine Park, athletes complaining of a bad smell in the water. Tokyo 2020 organizers, though, said earlier this week the water quality was not an issue for the International Triathlon Union, who were prepared to let their test event to go ahead as scheduled.
The test results for the previous week show that the water quality is good enough and that the number of E. Coli and enterococci are continuously well below the level of International Triathlon Union criteria.
In addition, they would install more filtering screens ahead of the Games to those already in place after 2017 tests showed levels of E. Coli up to twenty times above the accepted limit and fecal coliform bacteria seven times higher. The single-layer underwater screens installed in Tokyo Bay have helped diminish the bacteria, according to organizers. For the coming year, we will install triple-layer screens to assure the successful delivery of the competitions.
