Number of athletes at Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony to be reduced by half

Monday’s Yomiuri reported that it learned from a source that the International Olympics Committee (IOC) is estimating that about 6,000 athletes will attend the opening ceremony for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, which is half the original figure. The paper said this is because the number of days athletes will stay in the athletes’ village will be restricted as part of measures to prevent COVID-19 infection. The daily said this is also intended to contribute to “simplifying” the Olympic Games.
