Around “50 to 60” items aimed at simplifying the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games are set to be approved in the coming weeks, according to Organizing Committee chief executive Toshirō Mutō.

The measures – which target reducing costs and ensuring the safety of athletes and spectators – including the number of people involved in the Games, infrastructure, and Ceremonies, Mutō added. The Tokyo Olympic chief admitted the exact cost of the items would not be available until December.

“We imagine to have an agreement on the substances, but the ballpark number on the reduction won’t be obtainable immediately because we need to thoroughly inspect the numbers,” Mutō supposed.

Mutō also said not to expect a decision on if or how spectators will be able to attend the Olympics and Paralympics, pushed back to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, by the end of the year. Organizers have repeatedly stressed that they are including crowds in their planning for the rescheduled Games, but leading officials from both the IOC and Tokyo Olympic have acknowledged holding events without spectators is a possibility. How fans can attend the Games is set to be the main subject of a meeting of a panel assessing coronavirus countermeasures in November.

“When it comes to the specific numbers and how much of the percentage of total capacity should be allowed, I can’t say whether that will be decided by December,” Mutō said.

We need to keep a close eye on the situation with the COVID-19 spread. We shouldn’t make a decision right before Games time, but definitely, we should observe the situation thoroughly. The first set of COVID-19 countermeasures are set to be revealed by the end of the year, a timeline reiterated by IOC vice-president and Tokyo Olympic Coordination Commission chairman John Coates today.

Border controls, COVID-19 countermeasures at venues, plans for dealing with infected people, pre-Games training camps, rules for public transport, and the necessity of an isolation period upon entry into Japan are all being discussed.

“Our decision at the moment is to go ahead,” Coates, who recently claimed Tokyo Olympic will take place next year irrespective of the coronavirus pandemic, supposed.

What we wait for is to decide what counter-measures we need to go ahead with, to proceed depending on what stage COVID is at. The extent of the ceremonies, the extent of the crowd participation, any necessary quarantine when they arrive in Japan.  All of those things. And by the time we get to the end of the year, we’ll assess what counter-measures we’ll need to apply.

“All the people complicated with the Games are working together to make, and the athletes are also making substantial efforts toward next year under the conditions they’ve been handed,” supposed Hashimoto in a news conference.

I think we have to grip the Games at any cost. I want to distillate all our efforts on events in contradiction of the coronavirus. Hashimoto was replying to remarks made by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) vice-president and the head of the IOC’s Tokyo Olympic Coordination Commission, John Coates.

Yesterday, the Australian claimed that the Olympics “will take place with or without COVID. Hashimoto has the most Olympic appearances of any Japanese athlete, representing the country as a speed skater in four consecutive Winter Games from 1984 to 1994 and as a cyclist in three consecutive Summer Games from 1988 to 1996.

She won a bronze medal in the 1500 meters speed skating event at Albertville 1992. Hashimoto was also Japan’s Chef de Mission at two Winter Olympic Games – Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014 – and one Summer Games when she fulfilled the role in Rio 2016.

She is also President of the Japan Skating Federation. Initially scheduled for July 24 to August 9 this year, the Olympics are now scheduled to take place between July 23 and August 8, 2021. The Paralympics are then planned from August 24 to September 5.

A Japanese Government panel held its first meeting on Friday to plan steps to counter the pandemic if the Games go ahead. This was in coordination with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee and was headed by Kasuhiro Sugita.

There is the aim of producing robust countermeasures by the end of the year, while a scaled-back and more frugal Games has been promised. A further four meetings are expected to take place before the end of November.

Issues due to being discussed include travel restrictions for foreign athletes, anti-virus measures at the Athletes’ Village and Games venues, and how to handle spectators. Tokyo Olympic spokesman Masa Takaya did not share the same overwhelming optimism as Hashimoto, but he did state that he believed work was heading in the right direction.

Japan has been boosted by sporting events being held worldwide, albeit under strict restrictions. There continues to be the talk of allowing more fans into stadiums in the country for baseball and football matches, but that has yet to be implemented.

“This has been a big, big reassurance for the staff members of Tokyo Olympic,” supposed Takaya.

We texture that is another step towards where we can see sports in the act in our society. Japan now denies entry to people from 146 countries and areas as part of its fight in contradiction of the coronavirus pandemic. Those who are allowable to enter are requested to spend two weeks in quarantine. Predictably, around 11,000 athletes from more than 200 nations and lands will compete at the Olympics in Tokyo.

I need more players of the same level, quality players because badminton is a mind game, it needs teamwork. It has been a few weeks and we are still training a few players and that is not good. It is important to train as a group so that players can compete hard and help each other – healthy competition is important.

I hope for support from SAI in getting more players to train. Once we have that, we would be in a better position to prepare and do well in tournaments including the Tokyo Olympics. India has earned two Olympic medals in badminton, with Sindhu adding a silver medal from Rio 2016 to Nehwal’s bronze from London 2012.

“During the test of the progress of their capabilities, the lifters were not only able to break a national record, but also a world record,” Oktohari supposed.

Olympic Gymnastics: Olympic medalist Wilson claims “culture of abuse” in British gymnastics

Nile Wilson has claimed there is a culture of abuse in British gymnastics and said athletes are treated like pieces of meat. The Olympic bronze medalist made the comments while criticizing the handling of a complaint he made earlier this year. Wilson becomes the latest gymnast to allege abuse in recent weeks, with athletes in Australia, Britain, The Netherlands and Switzerland having all made allegations of emotional and physical harassment.

Several gymnasts have published stories of their own experiences following the release of Netflix documentary Athlete A, which details the abuse scandal at USA Gymnastics involving disgraced former team doctor Larry Nassar and an alleged cover-up by the governing body. Wilson is the highest profile male gymnast to allege abuse to date. The Rio 2016 high bar bronze medalist told the BBC that he had made a complaint about Leeds Gymnastics Club, where he was based, which related to an altercation with a senior member of staff at a club social event.

I just felt like I wasn’t being heard and I was wronged, the 24-year-old supposed. I believe there’s a massive element of control. We’re made to feel fear, or scared of speaking out, voicing our concerns, because they have us, our livelihoods, in their hands. If I voice my concern, I may affect my selection for Olympic Games. So, we stay quiet, we do what we’re told. And in wrapping that up, I feel like that’s the culture, that’s how I’ve experienced it the last two decades. According to the BBC, Leeds Gymnastics Club defended how the complaint made by Wilson had been dealt with.

“The allegations referred to were professionally and robustly investigated in line with the club’s policy and advice,” the club said.

At the time all parties placed on record their confidence in the meticulous investigation and evidence gathering process, the outcomes of which were independently verified. We would be pleased to co-operate with Sport England to arrange a further review of the papers pertaining to this very serious allegation.

We concluded the club had dealt with the matter appropriately. British Gymnastics launched an independent review in response to claims made by athletes including sisters Becky and Ellie Downie. The governing body has stepped aside from any involvement in the review. Olympic bronze medalist Amy Tinkler last month also criticized the national governing body over their handling of a complaint she made.

Tinkler claimed the time taken by British Gymnastics to reach a conclusion to her complaint could put other gymnasts in danger. She also revealed that she had retired in January after making the formal complaint to British Gymnastics and not because of injury, as initially reported. Wilson told the BBC that he had been blessed to have had some incredible coaches, but he was critical of a win at all costs culture within the sport.

“It was certainly apparent that culture existed and still exists today, which I definitely want to change,” Wilson said.

I would certainly say that I was abused, without a doubt. I would absolutely describe it as a culture of abuse. And I’ve lived and breathed it for 20 years. British Gymnastics are among other national bodies in the sport which have commissioned independent reviews following allegations. Gymnastics New Zealand and the Royal Dutch Gymnastics Union have also announced similar processes in recent weeks.
