    Less than 50 days now

    The naysayers take it out on their own medal-contending athletes on social media. How does that sound?

    That's what I feared when I wrote that reply. In case people didn't know, Rikako IKEE and Miu Hirano are close friends.

    The duality of the Japanese culture at full power once again...

    https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-p...ll-2021-06-07/
    Half of the Japanese public think the 2020 Olympics will take place this summer, a survey by the Yomiuri daily newspaper showed on Monday, despite most people opposing holding the Games during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    JOC executive hit and killed by train in apparent suicide

    東京奧運|菅義偉避談舉辦準則 日本奧運大臣︰東奧延期有困難
    https://skypost.ulifestyle.com.hk/ar...9B%A3%20%C2%A0
    日本首相菅義偉在國會回應質詢時,避談在疫情下堅持舉辦奧運的判斷準則,只是強調保護國民生命及健康是他的工作,亦是舉辦的前提,若果無法保護,就不會舉行。在野黨議員追問菅義偉是否前提不成立就可以取消奧運,菅義偉回應說,他本人並非主辦方。
    When Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga responded to a question in the Diet, he avoided talking about the judgment criteria for holding the Olympic Games under the pandemic, but emphasized that protecting the lives and health of the people is his job and a prerequisite for the event. If it cannot be protected, it will not be held. Opposition MPs asked Yoshihide Suga whether the Olympics could be cancelled when the prerequisite is not met, Yoshihide Suga responded that he was not the organizer.

    WTF?

    Election coming soon. Suga approval all time low with handling of pandemic and holding games with high disapproval. Big pressure coming for Suga to make big calls.

    Judging by Facebook and Twitter, most of the Japanese are against the Olympics.

    I'm pretty confident Olympics will now go ahead. Both Boris Johnson & now President Biden have given support to Suga, think that's the green light needed to proceed. Was listening for the potential for plenty of disruptions to matches, games, events if cases within the village circulate but that data might be manipulated too.

    Think teams now really up the tempo as most uncertainty has been cleared.

    7.7 infections per day
    11.7 persons to be hospitalized
    154 persons to be infected in total

    https://news.tvb.com/world/60c48d4c3...A2%BA%E8%A8%BA
    東京奧組委參考上月四次有海外運動員參與的測試賽數據,指約700人中有一名教練確診,將感染率假設為百分之0.2,推算奧運期間,每天平均將有7.7人確診,住院人數最多達11.7人,整場奧運將有154人確診。不過如果其他國家的疫苗接種進度有進展,確診人數可能減少。
    奧組委又估算,每天最多有約22.5萬人在東京都入場觀賽,日本政府和東京奧組委將於本月敲定入場人數上限。

    Honestly appears Suga is trying to salvage costs. Think way he views it not good if Japan loses say 200 billion with cancelling of event, payout to IOC, sponsors and other costs associated to cancellation with nothing to show for it rather than lose say 50 billion which might include lost revenue from ticket sales and merchandise that won't be sold but might be able to get some returns back in TV rights etc

    Anyways my opinion is just prepare for the event as it's happening. Who might it favour? Maybe CNT have been able to have more solid preparations back home with the use of the entire squad to help prepare with multiple trials etc so maybe could go in with an edge compared to say Indian team, South American teams, European teams who have had their countries impacted badly by covid which would effect their training etc. Japanese team might have had heavy distractions with state of emergency and no crowds might negate any home advantage, hard to say.

    Big concern is we get to the event & matches get cancelled, teams pull out due to infections or disruptions occur. Imagine if Ma Long, Chen Meng, Harimoto test positive or say Korean team tests positive and need go into quarantine for 2 weeks, bad look. Imagine if say Spain Basketball team win Gold Medal because USA Dream Team pulls out due to covid infections, these are real possibilities.

    Möregårdh decided he would prove Jörgen Persson wrong about not picking him for the Olympic squad by winning this year's Swedish national championship. He was very upset he didn't get to come as a substitute. Mattias Falck did not participate and Kristian Karlsson had to leave WO because of a fever after his second vaccine dose.

    Semi:
    Anton Källberg - Jens Lundquist (11-3, 11-3, 11-5, 11-6)
    Truls Möregårdh - Jon Persson (9-11, 3-11, 11-8, 6-11, 14-12, 11-7, 11-8)

    Final
    Truls Möregårdh - Anton Källberg (7-11, 7-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-3, 11-7)

    Källberg who had demolished all opposition looked to continue that, but Möregårdh found his form and started playing very well and turned the final around.

    From what I've heard or seen people are content with singles and teams. It has mostly been Karlsson and Möregårdh voicing opinions right around the selection about not being selected for singles/reserve spots. Möregårdh wanting experience and Karlsson (in an emotional state) that he was in no way a clear cut level below Källberg as Persson might have clumsily formulated it. From commentators, during events and league matches, they seem very high on Källberg and talks about his Bundesliga season all the time and I suppose most people (like me) are fine with the selection.

      而谈到自己心目中比较强劲的对手时,龙队表示:“我觉得张本智和、林昀儒,包括像皮切福德,其实有很多,我觉得有很多年轻的,像达科、普卡,我觉得这些运动员冲击力都非常强,而且可能不同以往的那些老队手,这些选手这几年,而且再加上去年疫情,就没有怎么(打过)、打得很少,所以相互了解也不多的情况下,可能上来就是刺刀见红这样一场比赛,所以总有这种感觉不确定的因素。”
    When speaking of the stronger opponents in his mind, Captain Long said: "I think Harimoto and Lin Yun-Ju, including Pitchford, and actually many others. I think there are many young ones, such as Darko and Pucar. I think these athletes have a very strong impact, and they may be different from the age-old players in the past. In the past few years, and coupled with the pandemic situation last year, I have not (played) these players very much and played very little, and given the limited understanding, anything could happen, so there is always such an element of uncertainty."

    Judging from the doubles match, the odds for Germany should be slightly better at Tokyo than at Rio.

    Appears Tokyo 2021 will definitely go ahead. Can't see it being cancelled now.

    10,000 local spectators will be allowed at venues, but no hugging, alcohol or cheering will be allowed so wonder if this gives the home teams an advantage at all?
