Tokyo-2020: Organizing committee chairman wants audience on the stands


The new president of the Tokyo2020 Olympic Games organizing committee, Seiko Hashimoto, said she wants to have an audience on the event’s stands, postponed one year due to the covid-19 pandemic.

“When we look at the possibility of Olympic Games without an audience on the stands, athletes will ask why there are no people at the Olympic and Paralympic Games and are allowed in other competitions,” said Hashimoto.

However, the possibility of an audience on the stands will depend on the evolution of the pandemic, said the new chairman of the organizing committee, who replaced Yoshiro Mori, who said goodbye after sexist comments.

“Everyone wants a quick decision for fans, so they can prepare travel and accommodation,” he said.

According to the local press, legislation is being prepared to allow foreign athletes to enter the country, which would allow the holding of test events for Tokyo2020, at a time when the vast majority of Japanese people do not agree with the Games.

“Support for organizing the Olympic Games will not increase until we are able to eliminate sources of concern about the new coronavirus pandemic, including significant pressure on the health system,” said Seiko Hashimoto.
