But Bach is not really welcomed in Japan of these days. His performances are highly critically accompanied, the unconditional clinging to the Tokyo play laid for a year, in the midst of a Corona emergency, many Japanese take the 67-year-old evil. "We know about the skepticism of many Japanese," said Bach a few days before the opening of the summer games stresses carefully.

also the controversial Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga had still admonished Bach at a meeting: "As the host of the games, I hope that the IOC will do everything that all athletes and parties took themselves entirely to the measures."
"We should trust each other," said Bach shortly thereafter. "In all modesty," he ask the Japanese population, "welcome and support the athletes from all over the world».
