Tokyo: The organizing committee of the Tokyo Olympics has nominated 12 women to its executive board in an effort to "restore trust" following former President Yoshiro Murray's sexist remarks.
Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto told reporters on Tuesday after an executive board meeting that the entire female board members are going to be increased to 19 from the present seven, accounting for about 40% from 20%, Xinhua news reports.
The total number of board members will rise to 45 from the present 34.
Muto didn't disclose the main points of the 12 women, adding they're going to be officially approved at the executive board meeting on Wednesday.
Several Japanese news outlets reported that Sydney Olympic marathon gold medallist Naoko Takahashi and two-time Paralympic alpine skiing champion Kuniko Obinata are among the 12 nominees.
Seiko Hashimoto, who took over as the new Tokyo 2020 president on February 19, said before the day’s meeting that “we need to deal with the issue quickly to restore the trust in the organising committee and to produce results.”Dr. Dhillon Randeep
