Tokyo Olympics 2020: The Olympic Games are going to start from July 23 in Tokyo, the capital of Japan. Due to the cases of corona virus coming to the fore in the sports village, the threat to the players is increasing. However, the Indian Olympic Association has taken a very important decision. The Indian Olympic Association has decided to send less than 50 members for the opening ceremony.
India is not the only country to send fewer members for the opening ceremony. In view of the increasing threat of Corona, other countries are also taking similar steps. Great Britain has also allowed only 30 athletes to take part in the opening ceremony.
It is believed that the risk of corona is high in the opening ceremony. For this reason, the Indian Olympic Association has taken this decision to protect the athletes from Corona. India’s team with less than 50 members, which will be in the opening ceremony, will include both athletes and officials.
Players’ safety is priority
This decision has been confirmed to ABP News by Indian Olympic Association Secretary General Rajeev Mehta. Rajeev Mehta has told that in view of the increasing threat of corona virus, we are sending a team of less than 50 members for the opening ceremony. Our priority is the safety of the players.
For the past several days, cases of corona virus are increasing in Tokyo, the capital of Japan. There is currently a state emergency in Tokyo. With the imposition of state emergency, it was announced that this year the Olympic Games will be held on the ground without spectators.
