a lot of rejection, no viewers, no mood: Olympia in Tokyo is a farce and would never have been allowed to be used. A comment.

The party is arranged. Billions are invested, no efforts have been spared. The Olympic Games , the largest sports festival in the world, can begin. On Friday at 13 o'clock German time they were opened in Tokyo . The stupid is only: There were no viewers invited. The pandemism in Japan did not allow this.

Still stupid but is that at the party hardly anyone wanted to attend anyway. Almost 80 percent of Japanese are indifferent or negative to these games. And that for months. The organizers, the International Olympic Committee and the Japanese government, pressed the event lasting until 8 August.

None two weeks after the football championship Is the next mass collection of people in sports during the Coronavirus Pandemic. This time no viewers are allowed. But the number of persons immediately involved in the games in Tokyo is around 70,000. Around 18,000 people are located in the Olympic village alone. And already in the past few days, some corona cases have been reported from the village. Every new positive test confirms the many Olympic Gegners.

The dislike is now so far that even its own sponsors are ashamed of the games. The carmaker Toyota does not want to broadcast any spots in Japan in which the own products are linked to Olympia. The visit of the opening ceremony has canceled the CEOs of all Olympic sponsors. It is a party on which you do not want to be seen. Would be pretty embarrassing.

because of ethics of sport. It's about the Zaster

The image of the Olympic Games is again in the basement . Nothing has remained left of the great guidelines of the Olympic Founder Pierre de Coubertin. Because of ethics of sport. It's about the zaster. If the games were canceled in Tokyo, the IOC and the host country would have lost many billions. That's why Olympia takes place. No yet so pathetic message on Friday can be laminated this fact.

it would have been nice if one or the other nation would have set a sign and boycotted the games. Why not already Germany?! This circus would have liked to take place in a smaller scale. Many Japanese and Japanese were happy about it.

sure there is also another view of things. What about the almost 12,000 athletes and athletes? For many of them, the competitions in Tokyo are a life goal. And what about the billion spectators and spectators in front of the screens giving Olympia joy and entertainment? And of course, it should be asked if the health risk that goes out of the games is really so big. The measures for infectious protection around the games in Tokyo are huge.

Olympia Dream over: Two medal citizens tested positively

World's World Round Listing and Impacting US Open Winner Jon Rahm (Spain) as well as the former major winner Bryson Dechambeau (USA) have been positively tested before their trip to Tokyo in the compulsory PCR tests. Both had last played at the British Open.

But at the moment no one can tell if the strict arrangements help. Sport has the stuff to the virus screw. This has shown the football championship only a few weeks ago. In addition, people from around 200 nations come together in Tokyo. If there is a favorable breeding ground for new mutations, then at Olympia.

The fear of the Japanese before the games is therefore justified, and the anger that opens the organizers of many citizens and citizens is entitled. The sports festival is aligned in one place whose inhabitants want their peace. Especially in pandemeal times.

The athletes and athlete can not be done anything about it. For many of them Olympia is the only chance to show up on a big stage. The games secure their sporty existence. They now deserve how Olympia has been squeezed that attention is paid and reported on them. Even if the party will probably be Trist in Tokyo.
