Chinanews, October 11, according to
In the case of the spread of the new crown epidemic, it was difficult for Japan to host international events before. This time, the operation of the event was taken into consideration as the first test for the Tokyo Olympics in the summer. It is reported that the Japan Gymnastics Association will introduce the summary of the event at a press conference on the 12th.
According to reports, the men's and women's events in the international gymnastics competition will be contested by athletes from Japan and gymnastics powerhouses of the United States, Russia, and China. Thorough measures will be taken to prevent the epidemic, including PCR testing of contestants and senior personnel before leaving the country and management of actions after entry.
During the epidemic, there was a trend overseas to promote the restart of international competitions, and Japan's entry restrictions became a bottleneck. A few days ago, at the coordination meeting for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics to discuss the new crown countermeasures, guidelines were put forward. As for athletes from countries and regions that refused to enter in principle, they are also allowed to enter as a special case on the condition of taking epidemic prevention measures.
