Hungarian athletes can only participate in the Tokyo Olympics with protection against the coronavirus


According to the MOB’s website, the presidency unanimously accepted the medical committee’s proposal, raising its previous position to the level of a resolution. According to the report, one Serbian rower gave a positive pattern in Japan, and then his four companions traveling with him were also quarantined for two weeks. The MOB Medical Committee then made its recommendation.

It was stated at the extraordinary presidency meeting that only three of the 363-member Hungarian delegation, of which 176 are athletes, are not protected.

“The case of Serbian athletes has shown that even though there have been indications in the past that a possible positive PCR test will be followed by consideration, the Japanese message is clear: if an athlete is not protected, he risks not only his own but also his teammates’ involvement,” Krisztián Kulcsár , President of the MOB.

He stressed that apparently everyone is aware that there is no one hundred percent security, but at the same time all other issues need to be pushed into the background so that no one misses out on Olympic participation because the MOB has not done its best in this area.
