Olympic 2020 Tickets: IOC to name Refugee Olympic 2020 Team for Tokyo Olympic in June

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. The Refugee Olympic Team debuted at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, where 10 athletes were selected to compete across athletics, judo and swimming events.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Olympic 2020 Tickets: Canadian archers receive an exemption to train in lockdown ahead of Tokyo Olympic qualifiers

But Archery Canada said it received an exemption from the Government of Ontario to enable the team to hold a camp in the Cambridge and Kitchener area at the end of January. Thirteen athletes and four support staff attended the camp which was held under strict health and safety protocols.

According to Archery Canada, the process included a “lengthy pre-camp routine” involving two separate COVID-19 tests in the space of four days ahead of the event.

“We are grateful for the privilege of being able to prepare for the Olympics while in lockdown,” said Alan Brahms, high-performance advisor for Archery Canada.

This was made possible by establishing sophisticated hygiene and safety protocols and a close-knit testing and monitoring system. The support of many different parties and partners, including the financial support of the Government of Canada, and the support of the public health authority, the City of Cambridge, the Region of Waterloo, the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre, the YMCA, the ComDev training facility, and the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario was tremendous.”

Crispin Duenas remains the only Canadian archer to have booked his place at the Olympics in the men’s individual recurve after winning gold at the 2019 Pan American Games. Canada’s women’s recurve team are currently preparing for the Olympic qualification tournament, scheduled to be held in Mexico from March 21 to 29.

“Under the conditions, this was anything but a normal training camp for our group,” said Shawn Riggs, Canada’s recurve coach.

I am glad to see how everyone executed our protocols and demonstrated collective accountability to keep our environment protected. We must prepare ourselves as best as possible for the year ahead and this was a key component of that preparation and we learned a lot.

“From a competitive point of view, we saw some strong results and had four men over 670 and six men over 660, which is something we have not seen.

It is an indicator that we are building a broader group in the men’s team, which can be competitive at the world level. Although our arrow average in match and team round play was not quite where it needed to be, it was a good assessment of where our men’s team is positioned coming out of a month’s long environment that saw restricted training opportunities.

Virginie Chenier, who was one of four women to take part in the camp, said she benefitted from the event after coming through quarantine. While Mariessa (Pinto) and myself had to manage through intra-provincial travel and an additional four-day quarantine in the hotel before the start, this was a great opportunity for the four women to come together to compete and also just to train with a larger group, said Chenier.

Everybody has been missing this, and once everybody received their second test result, we were able to somewhat get back to normal over five days of quality training and competing. Canada Archery is set to stage a men’s selection camp this month and in March before the Archery World Cup is scheduled to start in Guatemala in April.

With National Basketball Association (NBA) players expected to make up the core of all three teams and the league’s playoffs scheduled to take place from May 22 to July 22, such an environment would allow players to limit travel and possible exposure to COVID-19 before going to Japan.

“On the surface it makes a lot of sense,” USA Basketball’s managing director Jerry Colangelo told ESPN.

We have to be flexible. Spain, the reigning World Cup champions, have five current NBA players who have played on the national team in the past – Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Serge Ibaka, Juancho Hernan Gómez and Willy Hernan Gómez.

The Australians named their Olympic roster pool this week, and it has 10 current NBA players, including Ben Simmons, Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Dante Exum and Matisse Thybulle. Team USA is tentatively planning to open the training camp from July 4, while the NBA playoffs are taking place.

Colangelo added that USA Basketball has petitioned the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Basketball Federation, which runs the Olympic basketball tournament, to change the rules for when rosters for the Games must be submitted.

Usually, the rosters must be set several weeks in advance, but with the NBA playoffs running until three days before the US is scheduled to play a first Olympic game, Colangelo is calling for changes. Team USA has asked to allow roster changes even during the Olympics as players may fly over late and join teams, Colangelo said. Colangelo is waiting to hear back from the governing bodies on the matter.

“These are not normal times,” he said.

Rosters by a certain date doesn’t make any sense. What we’re seeking is flexibility to substitute players very late and to get the best players on the court. It doesn’t just apply to us but for all the countries. On Wednesday the IOC released its first set of Games guidelines which said athletes were not required to be vaccinated or to quarantine on arrival, but that they would have to undergo testing before and after their journey.

Olympic Tickets: IWF finally confirms Romania faces an outright ban from Tokyo Olympic weightlifting

The prospect of Romania being banned outright from weightlifting at Tokyo 2020 has moved a step nearer after two anti-doping rule violations at the London 2012 Olympic Games were formally closed by the International Testing Agency (ITA).

The news means that Romania’s fate is now in the hands of an independent panel which has already banned three nations outright from this year’s re-arranged Olympic Games – Thailand, Egypt and Malaysia. Colombia and Vietnam, both of which have had three doping positives within the Olympic qualifying period, are also liable to suspension, though Colombia is appealing in the case of three athletes who say they ingested boldenone through tainted meat.

Russia and Iraq could also find themselves in trouble for multiple violations. Romania was already limited to sending only one male and one female athlete to Tokyo Olympic because of its doping record since the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.  Its top male lifter in the rankings, Nicolae Onica, was provisionally suspended last September after testing positive for anabolic steroids. After that suspension, no Romanian male was likely to make it through qualifying to Tokyo Olympic. 

But if the ban is confirmed as expected, Romania will lose a genuine medal chance in the women’s events. Loredana Toma, the European champion, stands fourth in the 64-kilogram rankings and her 249kg total early last year in Rome is the third-highest by any athlete in that class. In her absence, Maude Charron of Canada and Mattie Sasser of the United States could come into the reckoning.

Toma tested positive for stanozolol in her youth and served a two-year ban from 2014 when she was 19. Romania’s entire team of four at London 2012 came up positive for stanozolol in the retesting of stored samples conducted by the IOC. Florin Croitoru, ninth in the men’s 56kg, was first to be disqualified by the IOC, in May 2019.

Ten weeks ago, three more were disqualified, two of them medalists, by the IOC – Roxana Cocos. Who forfeited her silver medal in the women’s 69kg, Razvan Martin. Who lost a bronze in the men’s 69kg, and Gabriel Sincraian. Who failed to post a total in the men’s 85kg. Sinclair was also disqualified at Rio 2016 and forfeited a bronze medal. Many within the sport believe that the IWF could have suspended Romania already under its Tbilisi Decision. Taken in 2016, which ruled that any nation with three or more. Positives in the IOC retests should be banned for a year.

Nine nations served such a suspension in 2017 before any of Romania’s team came up positive. When the IOC closed the remaining three of Romania’s London 2012 cases in late November. The IWF made no statement about whether the Tbilisi Decision would apply.

Christian Baumgartner, the former President of the German Weightlifting Federation, is still nominally. The chair of the IWF’s Tbilisi Commission, on which the IWF Interim President Mike Irani also sits, or Sat.

Even in the latest statement by the IWF, there was no mention of it. Or of the fact that Romania had “three or more” positives in IOC retests. Instead, it referred to Romania having had four athletes guilty of doping within 12 months. Another offence that is punishable by suspension.
