The International Olympic Committee (IOC) plans to announce the Refugee Olympic Team for Tokyo Olympic in June, with 55 athletes seeking to compete at the Games.

A total of 37 refugee athlete scholarship holders were confirmed to be in contention for Olympic 2020 back in 2019. The IOC has said Olympic Solidarity is currently supporting 55 scholarship holders, who are training in the hope of competing at the rescheduled Games in the Japanese capital. The athletes come from 13 countries and are hosted by 21 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) across all five continents.

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel, Jordan, Kenya, Luxembourg, Portugal, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom are hosting athletes. The athletes represent the sports of athletics, aquatics, badminton, boxing, canoeing, cycling, judo, karate, taekwondo, shooting, weightlifting and wrestling.

“Since the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Olympic Solidarity has invested more than $2 million (£1.4 million/€1.6 million) in support for refugee Olympic scholarship holders preparing for the Olympic Games,” said IOC President Thomas Bach.

The final composition of the IOC Refugee Olympic Team will be announced at the Executive Board in June. It will be based on several criteria. This includes their sporting performance, their confirmed refugee status, as well as balanced representation across sports, regions and genders. World Refugee Day falls on June 20, with the team likely to be announced to coincide with the date.

The IOC added that an agreement has been established with the International Testing Agency to make sure athletes will be tested before the selection. Athletes and their coaches will also be able to access online training around anti-doping, safeguarding and general athlete welfare in the lead-up to the Games.

The IOC has promised to continue to help the refugee athletes who will not go to Tokyo and to support the members of the team after the Olympic Games through various Olympic Solidarity programmers, including helping with their athlete career transition. An update was also provided to the IOC Executive Board on the Olympic Refuge Foundation, formed after the Refugee Olympic Team’s appearance at Rio 2016.

The IOC said 200,000 young people in six countries are benefiting from sports programmers designed to improve their well-being and social inclusion. The organization cited a recently launched Uganda-based project called “Game Connect”, which is supported by a consortium of partners, including the Ugandan Olympic Committee, the Association of Volunteers in International Service (AVSI), UNHCR, Youth Sport Uganda and Right to Play.

Earlier this month, the IOC confirmed the Olympic Refuge Foundation had received a donation from the French Government to support refugees and migrants through sport in France, to launch an initial activity programmed in the Paris region during 2021.

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 Tickets: Iran’s Hadipour opts against ACL surgery to keep Olympic 2020 dream alive

Two-time World Taekwondo Championships medalist Armin Hadipour has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) – but still plans to compete at the Olympic 2020 Olympics. The Tehran Times quotes Iran’s coach Fariborz Askari as saying Hadipour will not undergo surgery in the hope of being able to take part at this year’s Olympic 2020 Games.

“Hadipour will miss the Olympics if he undergoes the surgery,” said Askari.

After consulting with the doctors, we’ve decided to keep him fit for the Olympics without the surgery. Mohammad Bagheri Motamed won a silver medal at London 2012 under the same circumstances.

Hadipour won a bronze medal in the men’s under-54-kilogram division at the 2019 World Championships in Manchester. Two years previous, at the World Championships in Muju, Hadipour won silver. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics appeared to be out of the question when Alizadeh first left Iran, but the Games’ postponement has allowed enough time to make the move official.

Iran’s team travelling to Sofia includes world silver medalists Armin Hadipour, Sajjad Mardani, Soroush Ahmadi and Mirhashem Hosseini, Asian Games silver medalist Amir Mohammad Bakhshi, and Mehran Barkhordari. Hadiour, who won bronze, and runner-up Ahmadi were among Iran’s three medalists at the 2019 World championships.

Now 26, Hadipour also won three consecutive Universiade gold medals – at Gwangju 2015, Taipei 2017 and Naples 2019 – and was one of Iran’s brightest medal hopes for Tokyo 2020 before news of this injury. Iran’s taekwondo players have recently been training with their Bulgarian counterparts, ahead of travelling to Bulgaria for next month’s Sofia Open.

Russia had a penalty shot to win it during the fifth round of shots but Croatian goalkeeper Toni Popadic came up with a crucial save to continue proceedings. Nine rounds of shots later Roman Shepelev missed for the Russians, with Josip Vrlic scoring the next penalty for Croatia to give them victory in the bronze medal match at the qualification tournament, as well as the bigger prize of a place at Olympic 2020.

Russia earlier led in the contest at half-time by 7-6 before Croatia took the lead in the third period. Croatia was unable to close the match out in regulation play and Russia came up with an equalizing goal with 16 seconds to go to force the dramatic shoot-out, which meant the final score in the match was 25-24 after penalties.

Olympic Tickets: Croatia’s victory

Croatia’s victory means they have qualified for seven straight Olympic men’s water polo tournaments, with their best result coming when they claimed gold at London 2012 after beating Italy 8-6. The final of the qualification tournament was contested between Montenegro and Greece, with the two countries having confirmed their qualification for Olympic 2020 yesterday by reaching the showpiece match.

Despite there being less at stake it was a competitive and tight affair, with Greece holding a narrow 8-6 lead after three quarters. In the final period, Dusan Matkovic scored a hat-trick for Montenegro as they netted four straight goals to give them a 10-9 victory. Two more placement matches took place on the final day of the competition to decide positions in the rankings. In the battle for fifth hosts, the Netherlands turned a three-goal deficit heading into the final quarter into a one-goal win as they triumphed 10-9 against France.

Olympic 2020 Tickets: Olympic medalist Hashimoto appointed Tokyo Olympic President

Seiko Hashimoto has been appointed Tokyo Olympic President after accepting the vacant role following the resignation of Yoshiro Mori last week.

Olympic fans from all over the world are called to book Olympic 2020 tickets from our online platforms Summer Games Tickets. Olympic 2020 Tickets admirers can book Olympic Opening Ceremonies Tickets from our ticketing marketplace exclusively at reduced prices.

Olympic Opening Ceremony Tickets | Olympic Tickets | Olympic 2020 Tickets | Summer Games Tickets | Tokyo Olympic Tickets | Olympic Hospitality

Hashimoto said she had met with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and had stepped down as Olympics Minister before taking up the position as head of the Organizing Committee for the postponed Games. The 56-year-old Olympic speed skating bronze medalist had been proposed for the job by the Candidate Selection Committee tasked with choosing Mori’s successor but was reportedly initially reluctant to accept.

“I will spare no effort for the success of the Tokyo Games,” Hashimoto said.

Appointing a woman to the role is a highly significant move following the departure of Mori, who resigned after causing an uproar with sexist comments about women. International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach said appointing a female to lead the Organizing Committee “sends a very important signal about gender equality”.

Hashimoto, who had previously faced allegations of sexual harassment at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, was reportedly one of three candidates shortlisted by the Selection Committee. Japanese media reported Yasuhiro Yamashita, the head of the Japanese Olympic Committee and gold medalist in judo at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

The Selection Committee, headed by 85-year-old Canon chief executive Fujio Mitarai, fast-tracked its process to find a replacement for Mori, with the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympics set to open in just over five months. It was established after the 83-year-old former Japanese Prime Minister bowed to widespread pressure and resigned as Olympic 2020 President following his sexist remarks when he suggested women talk too much.

As the former Minister of State for Gender Equality and Minister in Charge of Women’s Empowerment, I look forward to her using the Games as a platform to advance the diversity and inclusion agenda, not just in terms of gender, but sexuality, race and, importantly, persons with disabilities.

The sexism row marked the latest crisis for organizers of the first postponed Olympic and Paralympic Games and came amid renewed concerns over whether the event would go ahead following a surge in COVID-19 cases across the world.

Hashimoto’s seven Olympic Games are a record for a Japanese woman, after her career as a speed skater and a cyclist. She was best known for speed skating, competing on the ice at four Winter Olympics and winning bronze over 1500 meters in Albertville in 1992.

On the bike, Hashimoto competed at three Summer Olympics without winning a medal. Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, who publicly criticized Mori’s comments before he resigned, Hashimoto became embroiled in her controversy at Sochi 2014 when she was seen kissing and embracing figure skater Daisuke Takahashi at a party.

Hashimoto denied the allegations and Takahashi said he had not been harassed, although she later issued an apology. Back then as well as today, I am still reflecting on myself and what I have done and what it has evolved into.

Fewer than three seconds remained when The Netherlands scored their final equalizer, winning the fourth quarter 6-2.

Romania beat Germany 12-7 in the group’s other match, eliminating the Germans. A winner-take-all game between Romania and France – level on three points – will decide who will be the final team to advance from Group B, with Croatia, Russia and the host nation all through already.

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.

Two Kenyan boxers have already booked their places at this year’s rearranged Games through last year’s African qualifier in Senegal – Nick Okoth in the men’s featherweight and Christine Ongare in the women’s flyweight.

The team was known as the “hit squad” is hoping more will qualify through the World Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Paris, which was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and is now tentatively planned for June. Benjamin said the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) had been with the team every step of the way.

“NOCK has walked with us all through,” he said to Citizen Digital.

They gave us the strength and conditioning coach that is in camp, for now, the nutritionist was also availed by them together with a psychologist. They gave us ring boots and other practicing materials which will help us a lot. 

“The players are very happy because these materials are not cheap. 

We thank NOCK so much for boosting our efforts in trying to send more boxers to the Olympics in Tokyo. Kenya’s team is currently training in capital city Nairobi. Boxing is the only sport the country has won an Olympic medal in outside the traditional Kenyan specialty of athletics and in particular long-distance running.

The country’s boxers have made the podium seven times, including gold for welterweight Robert Wangila at Seoul 1988. Benjamin’s comments will be a boost for the NOCK which endured a turbulent build-up to the Rio 2016 Summer Games.

Several top officials ended up in court after claims money meant for Kenyan athletes in Brazil was misused, with missing kit among the allegations. Earlier this month, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) held a continental forum online and in Nairobi. New AIBA President Umar Kremlev attended the event in the capital in person.

Olympic 2020 Tickets: Indian Government to vaccinate all athletes bound for Tokyo Olympic

Indian Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju has claimed the country’s athletes heading to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo will all be vaccinated against COVID-19.

“The Government’s policy is very clear,” he said. 

First of all, the vaccine will be provided to the warriors. the medical and security people. Our Olympic-bound athletes and their trainers will be provided priority in our Ministry but overall priority is set by the Ministry of Health.

They will all be vaccinated before they go for the Olympics, whoever goes. We will also take into account the time between two doses and everything else. India currently has 74 athletes qualified for the Olympics and 24 for the Paralympics, although the qualification is still ongoing in numerous sports.  

Tokyo Olympic was postponed to 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Olympics now scheduled from July 23 to August and the Paralympics set to follow from August 24 to September 5. Uncertainty continues to linger over the staging of the Games later this year as many countries are battling to curb rising infection rates.

While the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Tokyo Olympic have stressed vaccines will not be a “silver bullet” for the Games, their development has nonetheless boosted hopes of competition going ahead.   The 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.

Hungary and Serbia began inoculating their Olympic athletes last week, while Israel’s Olympic Committee says it has already vaccinated half its Olympic delegation and will complete the process by the end of May. Other National Olympic Committees from countries such as Canada, Britain and Italy have decided not to ask for their athletes to be given priority for vaccinations.
