“As a result of Olympic Village arrival guidelines outlined within the Tokyo 2020 Playbooks, athletes are solely arriving within the Village 5 days earlier than they compete. Which means there are much less athletes within the Village and that almost all of them are on the verge of competing,” stated Eric Myles, COC chief sport officer.
“The main target of Staff Canada stays on security, efficiency, and adhering to the letter and spirit of the Tokyo 2020 Playbooks.”
Issues across the pandemic-delayed Olympics have grown, with at the least 67 COVID-19 instances amongst these accredited for the Tokyo Video games since July 1 when most athletes and officers started arriving.
