Paralympics likely to be held without spectators  

Sankei wrote that the Suga administration is shifting its focus from the Olympics to concentrate on opening a “safe and secure” Paralympics on Aug. 24, speculating that allowing spectators to attend the Games will probably be difficult amid the fifth wave of COVID-19. As Prime Minister Suga is still keen to accommodate some spectators, the organizers are reportedly considering allowing elementary and middle school students to watch the events live at selected venues. Many Paralympians are also reportedly calling for spectators to be allowed in the belief that witnessing their performance firsthand will give people the opportunity to learn what people with disabilities can accomplish.
