The Tokyo Games have become as much about the Covid challenge as it is about conquering the competition.

Although monitored, isolated and tested prior to the flight, a growing number of persons have tested positive on arrival. Two South African soccer players have the unenviable distinction of being the first two athletes to test positive in the village.

As the IOC committee, 10 000 media and crew, 80 000 volunteers and 11 000 athletes gather for the 32nd Olympiad, Covid concerns are foremost in many minds. Plenty of Tokyo Olympians have tested positive and faced quarantine or other measures. It’s worth noting that virtually all arrivals have been vaccinated.
