    I think most countries these days have a problem with that , especially with soccer, that most of the best , and highest payed players are working abroad.
    The players might also more feel a loyalty to their clubs, who after all pay them well and are their bosses, than a country.
    National pride might play a secondary role.
    Is this a bad thing ?????
    Personally I think that the sooner we can develop a mindset , globally speaking, of "we", rather than "us and them" , the closer to a peaceful planet we come.

    I do not care if Malong or Chen Meng are from China , Switzerland or Mesopotamia, to me they are human beings and great TT-players 😁

    For the French team and big European and South American squads and 95% of their supporters the priority for these team are....
    1. World Cup
    2. Euro or Copa America
    3. Qualifers

    Olympics is not high on priority list, the remaining 5% that think the games is a priority are clueless.... Players have a very full on schedule and recovery is a non stop process so minor events are non essential. Their fans know this. They still display national pride, however they show it to the events that matter the most hence why they will concerve their energy to when it counts, that includes their club teams.

    Actually the men's football tournament in the Olympics is an under 23 tournament (3 overaged players allowed). This is because FIFA and the continental football associations don't want the Olympics to have the same status and compete with the World Cup and the continental championships. France's squad is quite decent and the other big football countries actually have really good squads considering the age restrictions. Gignac, the player playing in Mexico is actually around France's fifth or sixth best striker which is amazing considering his age and that France is probably the strongest football nation right now on paper (their NT coach is not good though).

    So many young gun players under 23....
    Kaylin Mbappe, Haaland, Phil Foden, Jadon Sanchho, Richarlison, Pedri, Fati, Marcus Rashford, Trent Alexander-Arnold, list just continues....

    Even without that rule, national teams wouldn't wanting to be sending big name players to these events.....

    This below is more like it. Don't just talk about yourself, but also your opponents. As if you're the only one peaking.

    Team DPRK not going to Tokyo? I assume that their entire team pulled out. Replaced by France who were runners up at the selection trials

    Am I correct in thinking there will be no spectators at the table tennis tournament since the venue's in Tokyo? Wonder what effect it'll have in terms of psychology for Harimoto/Ito, maybe they won't feel quite as pressured

    On the other hand, one of their best results was at the 2018 Japan Open. Mima Ito beat CXT and WMY to win the WS title. Harimoto beat the likes of Ma Long and ZJK to win the MS title. There's added pressure but also added energy from the home crowd.

    Yes, no spectators for table tennis. The events will take place at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, right next to the Japan National Stadium, where the opening, closing ceremonies, and Track & Field events will take place.

    The circle in the image from the article below is the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium. The Kokugakuin High School will serve as the "base" for JNT, just 7 minutes away by foot.

    If CCY is on same section of the draw of Harimoto & they meet say round of 32, things might get interesting.... That's one high seed he stands some chance in few weeks

    "Table tennis is the number one sport in China. They put a lot of money into the sport, and they have the best coaches who understand the game. But I think it is possible to pull a surprise in Tokyo. My target is to win a medal, and I hope to be lucky," Aruna said.
