The fireworks show was over and the athletes started to leave. Yesterday, Japan began extracting the results of the “Epidemic Olympics”.
As expected, Olympic officials were positive, stressing that this unprecedented session provided moments of hope and impact in the world and took place without any major setbacks.
IOC President Thomas Bach said, “These Olympics are a testament to the strength of the sport that unites people.
But this costly (at least 13 billion euros) and Japan needs more time to make decisions for the controversial Olympics, which took place at a time when Tokyo and other parts of the country were experiencing the peak of the “Govt-19” epidemic. Moreover, the Asahi newspaper, which called for the Olympics to be canceled, considered “betting” on people’s lives at a time when health was deteriorating. However, in a poll conducted by the newspaper in the last two days of the Olympics, 56 percent of Japanese people supported the hosting of the Olympics, compared to 32 percent who opposed it. However, as a sign of a situation that is still unclear, only 32% feel that games are “safe” and 54% do not trust the safety of games compared to others. The Tokyo Olympics, unlike any other global sporting event, begins with a postponement from 2020 on a historic end that has negatively affected some athletes. As health restrictions were imposed, everyone was forced to wear a helmet, and almost complete isolation was imposed on the Olympic sites.
Soon, there were signs that the Japanese people were changing their minds. Thousands of people gathered near the Olympic Stadium to watch the fireworks explode during the opening ceremony and took pictures in front of the Olympic Games logo. When the games started, people disobeyed instructions to stay away from street events and bought derivatives and souvenirs in stores. “If you see these athletes running in front of you, you can’t help but cheer them on,” Hiroshika Tadita said after watching the triathlon. Yesterday’s editorials greeted the athletes unanimously, and the Yomuri newspaper praised the “matches they put in the best efforts”. Despite fears about the consequences of the epidemic and the postponement of the competition, the athletes performed astonishingly as they broke many world records, and four new sports were added to the sport: skateboarding, windsurfing, sport climbing and karate. However, the epidemic was encamped in sports, and the athletes’ dreams were shattered when they were exposed to tests that revealed “Kovit-19″ disease. But overall, the athletes were delighted. Australian footballer Alana Kennedy wrote on Twitter: “In the midst of the epidemic, (the Japanese) were able to host a Super Olympics. They always greeted us with a smile and kindness. Thanks”.
“British Olympics”: The organizers are proud
“The games took place in very difficult conditions and the organizers excelled,” said Hugh Robertson, president of the British Olympic Association. On the other hand, the Olympic Games were a victory for the Japanese sport, winning a record 27 gold medals in all disciplines, from baseball to skateboarding.
Japanese Olympic officials believe these victories have contributed to the growing public support for the sport, with evidence of families coming to competition sites with their children or hanging flags from their windows.
But behind the cheers and applause, there is a sense of crisis over the increase in goiter infections during the games, although the organizers have made no contact. Tokyo and many other areas are subject to health restrictions, while only a third of the Japanese are fully vaccinated against the “govt”.
The health crisis may reflect the political future of Prime Minister Yoshihit Suu Kyi, who is running for the leadership of her Conservative party, facing general elections shortly after October.
Athletes’ dreams were shattered when they were subjected to tests that revealed they were suffering from “Covit-19” disease.
The cost of organizing the Tokyo Olympics is 13 billion.
