Tokyo Olympics 2020 rules unfair, says India


The Olympic body of India has slammed the rules that the Japanese government has imposed for athletes coming from Covid-19 hit countries for the Olympic games commencing next month in Tokyo.
On Monday, the organisers of Tokyo 2020 stated that they would use additional measures for reducing the risks that can come from countries infected by Covid, including India. These protocols involve testing the athletes daily for a week before they travel to Japan, and they will be refrained from meeting other teams once they have landed in Japan.
After this ruling, the Indian Olympic Association stated that these rules would cause all the athletes to lose crucial training days (three). The Indian Olympic Association president Narinder Batra along with Secretary Rajeev Mehta, in a joint statement, stated that athletes are allowed to arrive in the Olympic games village five days before the event, and now three days will waste. These five days are crucial for athletes as they need to move forward and be at their peak; this is discrimination.
Not only these questions like where they will have their meals, where they will train? Have been aroused as training halls and dining rooms are never empty. As per the Tokyo sports administration 11 countries which include UK, India and Pakistan.
