Russian surfers begin training on Northern Territories island

Fuji TV reported at noon that six Russian surfers who are hoping to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics have begun this season’s training on Kunashiri, one of the four islands of the disputed Northern Territories. The Russian Surfing Federation reportedly released a comment saying the camp will be a “starting point” for finding the right place for training in the “homeland.” The network said the decision to hold training that ignores territorial issues between Japan and Russia right before the Tokyo Olympics is expected to cause a stir.
