Tokyo to host international gymnastics event in November

Tokyo will host a world gymnastics tournament on Nov. 8, the Japan Gymnastics Association (JGA) has said, an occasion which could function as an attempt to run next year’s rearranged Olympic Games.

The event is sanctioned by the International Gymnastics Federation and can feature 32 athletes from Japan, China, Russia and therefore the us.

A maximum of two ,000 fans would be allowed to attend the one-day event at Yoyogi National Gymnasium, the venue for the handball tournament at the Games, which were postponed to 2021 thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The JGA said during a web media briefing on Monday that each one gymnasts coming back from overseas would need to take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test within 72 hours before their departure for Japan.

Japan’s 14-day quarantine period would be waived but they might be tested every day they're in Japan, it added.

Other international sporting events scheduled to be held in Japan within the coming months, including the Judo Tokyo slam and therefore the Tokyo Marathon, are cancelled or postponed thanks to restrictions on travel.

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said organisers expected to welcome spectators from round the world at next year’s Games.
