They pass through… a thousand waves Olympic Games whenever Tokyo is to take them over. The event is scheduled to start in seven weeks from now, however it seems that the Japan it is not so “hot”. Most of all, he wants the obligation to come out and move on to the next day.

The country of the rising sun was “trapped” in this situation, as a member of the Japanese Olympic Committee stated, estimating that the top sporting event has “lost its meaning”, but that it is too late to cancel it.

The Olympic Games, which were postponed last year due to its pandemic coronavirus, will be held from July 23 to August 8, “testing” the resilience of those involved. “I think we have already missed the opportunity to cancel them.” said former judoka and member of the Japanese Olympic Committee, Kaori Yamaguchi, speaking to the Japanese news agency Kyodo.

She added according to the APE-MPE: “We are trapped in a situation where we can not stop anything now. The Games have already lost their meaning and are preserved only because they should».

The country’s Olympian criticizes the stance of the Japanese government, the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which “seems to want to avoid dialogue”, as she pointed out meaningfully.

On the same wavelength, he continued: “Shouldn’t the Olympics be a celebration of peace? The opposite of peace is a harsh and persistent approach to say that “people may be against them, but they will change their minds when the Games begin.” The ILO seems to believe that public opinion in Japan is not important».

According to many polls, the Japanese population is largely opposed to the Olympics this summer, fearing that their health will deteriorate, while 10 of the archipelago’s 47 regions remain in a state of emergency.

IOC Vice President John Coates said last month that the Olympics would be held even if Tokyo was in a state of emergency.

The vaccination campaign in Japan, which began in February, has been widely criticized for its slowness. Although there are signs of acceleration in recent days, only 3% of the Japanese population has received both doses of the vaccine.
