Number of Participants in the Olympic Games Remains the Same
The number of participants in the Tokyo Olympics remains the same. Olympic driver John Coates has said the corona measures would not lead to fewer athletes.
The event in the Japanese capital was postponed for a year due to the pandemic last summer.
“The precise measures in the fight against the virus will become clear in the coming months,” continued Coates. “But we are sure that we can organize the Games in a very safe way.
We see the event as a kind of light at the end of the tunnel, in these challenging times for all of humanity.”
Coates, Chairman of the Coordinating Committee of the International Olympic Committee, visited Tokyo for the first time since February this year.
