Tokyo hosts 4-country gymnastics meet to test COVID safety

Gymnasts from the United States, China, and Russia will join counterparts from Japan in a one-day meet on Sunday in Tokyo, believed to be the first international sports event in the country since the Olympics were postponed seven months ago. What’s important is for Japanese government and Olympic officials to show that foreign athletes can enter Japan safely and not spread COVID-19. This is another step in attempting to illustrate that Tokyo will be able to hold next year’s Olympics — even without a vaccine — in the midst of a pandemic.
