Olympic 2020 Tickets: Indian HM asked for priorities Tokyo Olympic athletes for vaccine

India’s Health Ministry has been asked to make Olympic 2020 athletes a “priority” for coronavirus vaccinations after key workers, according to reports. It comes after Indian Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju claimed earlier this month that the country’s squad would all receive the COVID-19 jab.

Rijiju said, “COVID warriors” such as medical and security staff must come first but it is hoped the Tokyo 2020 team will not be far behind.

We have requested the Health Ministry to put athletes on priority, a Sports Ministry source told media agency Asian News International (ANI). As of now, we are awaiting their reply. Once they respond, we will start executing the process. 

There is still time for the Olympics and we are hopeful that we will be able to do it. We are having discussions with all concerned departments regarding this and we are working on it. The Olympic 2020 Olympics are due to begin on July 23 after being pushed back a year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

When the vaccination starts for others, after COVID warriors we want to give it to our players first especially the Olympic-bound athletes, Rijiju told ANI.  First of all, we have to ensure that COVID warriors get the vaccine because they are the ones who protect society.”

Some countries have already begun vaccinating their Olympic 2020 athletes but the idea of protecting young, fit and healthy sportsmen and women before the most vulnerable has naturally prompted criticism. 

“I’m encouraging more international matches in India,” said Rijiju.

India has been one of the countries worst affected by coronavirus with 11 million cases and 156,000 deaths. The country appears to have passed the peak, however. There was a total of 10,584 recorded cases yesterday compared with 97,894 logged one day last September. 

Rijiju applauded India’s reopening to international sport with an International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup scheduled for New Delhi next month. Badminton’s India Open is planned for May while the ongoing Test cricket series between the hosts and England will continue from tomorrow with the third contest in Ahmedabad. Our teams are going out also, but in the future, I want more international games and competitions to be held in India.

Olympic 2020 Tickets: Lithuania begins vaccinating athletes ahead of Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics

Lithuania has become the latest nation to begin vaccinating athletes against COVID-19 ahead of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Lithuania National Olympic Committee released photos of the country’s first set of Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls receiving vaccinations on Thursday.

Fans from all over the world are called to book Olympic 2020 tickets from our online platforms Olympic Tickets. Olympic Athletics admirers can book Olympic Athletics Tickets from our ticketing marketplace exclusively at reduced prices.

Coaches and medical staff were also able to receive voluntary vaccinations. The Lithuania National Olympic Committee said athletes and their team members were included in the priority list for vaccines by a Government decree, following a recommendation from the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports.

Athletes were split into two groups, with the first round of vaccinations given to 82 people. The second group is scheduled to be vaccinated on February 25. The first COVID-19 vaccine was given to kayaker Ignas Navakauskas, while high jumper Airinė Palšytė, Paralympic sprinter Ernestas Česonis, marathon runner Remigijus Kančys, cyclist Simona Krupeckaitė, and basketball players Marius Grigonis and Paulius Jankūnas were also pictured as having received the first dose.

The second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine is expected to be given to the athletes 35 days later. Around 290 Lithuanian athletes, coaches and medics are expected to be vaccinated in total ahead of Tokyo 2020. Lithuania reportedly has a rate of 5.2 vaccinations per every 100 people at this stage of the vaccine rollout.

Around 144,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have reportedly been given to residents of the country to date. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has repeatedly said it will not jump the queue ahead of those who need a vaccination most and has insisted it will not be mandatory for athletes to compete at the Games.

Playbooks released by the IOC and the International Paralympic Committee for stakeholders such as athletes have reiterated vaccines will not be mandatory for participants to attend Tokyo Olympic, with measures such as frequent testing, masks and social distancing set to be in place instead.

Countries such as Hungary, Serbia and Israel are already in the process of vaccinating their Olympic and Paralympic delegations, however. Other National Olympic Committees, including those in Germany, Canada, Britain and Italy, who have decided not to ask for their athletes to be given priority for vaccinations, will hope that vaccines will be available ahead of the Games.

Olympic 2020: Papua New Guinea athletes seek consent to train for Tokyo Olympic in Australia

Athletes from Papua New Guinea have requested to be allowable into Australia to train for this year’s Olympic 2020 Games in Tokyo. The athletes have been powerless to train overseas as they usually would have as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In its place, they have been making for the Tokyo Olympic at home, occasionally with makeshift amenities and tackle. Papua New Guinea’s Olympic Committee has then written to the Australian Government, request for its athletes to be allowable into the country to train for the six months earlier the Olympics, as stated by ABC. This may show to be problematic as the country’s borders are shut to everyone separately from Australian citizens and inhabitants.

“Of sequence, they’re not Australian citizens and we all comprehend the problems of Australians getting home themselves, so we comprehend it’s very problematic,” supposed Papua New Guinea’s Chef de Mission Tamzin Wardley.

But if we get to international rivalry, then the Tokyo dream starts to fade away. In reply, Australia’s Department of Distant Affairs demanded it was exploring ground-breaking, COVID-safe ways for PNG athletes to access Australian know-how as part of their preparations.

The Australian High Command has already providing Papua New Guinea athletes with AUD250,000 (£141,200/$191,400/€156,100) to allow them to continue exercise during the pandemic. Impacted athletes include weightlifter Dika Toua, the 12-time Oceania champion and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medalist who is on track for her fifth Olympic Games.

She would normally be training in New Caledonia with fellow Olympic hopeful Morea Baru but is instead preparing for Tokyo Olympic underneath her coach’s family house. Before this, Toua and Baru had to train in a makeshift shipping container.  Shooter Danny Wanma, who usually trains in Brisbane, has not been able to access ammunition and so is preparing for Olympic qualification by practising the motions without actually shooting.

He demanded the aptitude to travel to Australia to train would be a “godsend”, per ABC. Sailing brothers Teariki and Rose-Lee Numa are the only athletes from the nation to succeed for Tokyo Olympic so far and are practising in a local harbour.

“They’re out there urging each other on, nonetheless it’s nothing [compared] to being unhappy at a proper race start and good race event,” Wardley supposed.

I income my hat off to them that they’re out there and still going. They drag their lasers down from where they keep them under the house across a rocky beach to take them out sailing because they’re not even based at a proper yacht club with a ramp. Papua New Guinea has sent athletes to 10 Olympic Games so far but has not managed to earn a medal.  Eight athletes across six sports represented the country at Rio 2016.

“We had 240 judo students at our Academy before COVID hit,” Pedro recalled.

He explained that bespoke learning had taken place on Zoom calls, while measures had been taken once lockdown had eased sufficiently for youngsters to come into the center for training.

“We were tested several times and so many good protocols were in place.

“I think the risk was less big than going to the supermarket…”

Olympic Athletics: Indian athletics star calls for change and casts doubt on medal chances at Tokyo Olympic

One of India’s greatest athletes has claimed “change is needed” in Indian athletics and cast doubt on the country’s ability to earn a medal in the sport at the postponed Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Her time of 55.42 secs remains a national record.  During her 24-year career, Usha also earned four gold medals at the Asian Games and 14 titles at the Asian Athletics Championships.  In an interview with Times of India, Usha said the change was needed to improve India’s performance in athletics and was pessimistic about the country’s medal hopes at the postponed Tokyo Olympic.

Despite being the second-most populous country in the world behind China, India has not won an Olympic medal in athletics since Paris 1900, when Norman Pritchard, a British-Indian, won silver medals in the 200m and 200m hurdles. 

“Crores of rupees are being spent but no one is closer to that medal,” Usha said.

Maybe something is missing. Maybe all the facilities provided for athletes are of low quality. Or facilities are not given to true athletes. Ushu suggested there was “hope” for improved performance at Paris 2024 or Los Angeles 2028, however.

India’s performance at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta – where they won 20 medals in track and field competition, including eight gold and nine silver – has led to optimism that the country can make an impression at the top level. 

The Athletics Federation of India is currently looking for a new head coach. Bahadur Singh was recently forced to step down after more than 25 years because he was refused the chance to carry on in the role because of his age.  The contract of the 74-year-old double Asian Games gold medalist ended on June 30 and India’s Sports Ministry refused to extend it until Tokyo Olympic because they have an upper age limit of 70.

Olympic Athletics: Miller-Uibo could abandon Olympic 400 meters title defense due to Tokyo Olympic schedule

Olympic 400 meters champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo has said she may not defend her title at Tokyo Olympic as the schedule makes it difficult to also run in the 200m. The Bahamian has been the fastest woman over both 200m and 400m over the past two years and won the Olympic title over one lap at Rio 2016.

She has requested adjustments to the schedule to allow her to attempt the 200m/400m double in Tokyo, something that has been allowed in the past for American sprinters Michael Johnson and Allyson Felix, as well as French legend Marie-José Perec.

However, to date, there has been no word from the International Olympic Committee to suggest this request will be granted. At present, the women’s 200m final at the postponed Games next year is scheduled on the same day as the 400m heats, August 4. Miller-Uibo famously became the 400m Olympic champion in Rio when she dived for the line to claim gold ahead of Felix in a photo finish.

“As it is now, the schedule isn’t set-up for me to do two events, so I would have to choose one event and we’re leaning more toward the 200m seeing that we already have the 400m title,” the 26-year-old said to the Bahamas Guardian.

We wanted to do both I wanted to go after the 200m title and I also wanted to defend my 400m title, but the way the schedule is set-up, it would be difficult to do both. It’s been that way for a few years now.

When they didn’t change the schedule, we had to make some decisions – nothing is finalized as yet, but that’s the way it is right now. Miller-Uibo won silver at the 2015 and 2019 World Athletics Championships in the 400m and also holds a bronze medal over 200m from the 2017 edition.

“We have appealed to have the schedule changed,” Bahamas Olympic Committee President Romell Knowles said.

We’ve not received a positive response as yet, but we remain hopeful that they would take another look at it because it means so much to us and it means so much to Shaunae Miller-Uibo. To come from such a small island and to get an opportunity to be among the best in the world in both the 200m and 400m is just phenomenal.

“The precedent has already been set and we would just like to be given that opportunity, it means so much to a little country like ours that has produced such great athletes.”
