On Friday at 13 o'clock German time they were opened in Tokyo . The stupid is only: There were no viewers invited. The pandemism in Japan did not allow this.
Still stupid but is that at the party hardly anyone wanted to attend anyway. Almost 80 percent of Japanese are indifferent or negative to these games. And that for months. The organizers, the International Olympic Committee and the Japanese government, pressed the event lasting until 8 August.

because of ethics of sport. It's about the Zaster
The image of the Olympic Games is again in the basement . Nothing has remained left of the great guidelines of the Olympic Founder Pierre de Coubertin. Because of ethics of sport. It's about the zaster. If the games were canceled in Tokyo, the IOC and the host country would have lost many billions. That's why Olympia takes place. No yet so pathetic message on Friday can be laminated this fact.
it would have been nice if one or the other nation would have set a sign and boycotted the games. Why not already Germany?! This circus would have liked to take place in a smaller scale. Many Japanese and Japanese were happy about it.
sure there is also another view of things. What about the almost 12,000 athletes and athletes? For many of them, the competitions in Tokyo are a life goal. And what about the billion spectators and spectators in front of the screens giving Olympia joy and entertainment? And of course, it should be asked if the health risk that goes out of the games is really so big. The measures for infectious protection around the games in Tokyo are huge.

A Russian woman with a malignant lymphoma, who battled Covid-19 for five months, was found to have 18 different mutations of the virus inside her body. She first caught it in April and last tested positive in September.
“The new variant of the coronavirus found in Russia belongs to the same group as the British ‘strain,’” he told Moscow newspaper Izvestia. “They have common mutations. But there are also new ones.” On Monday, Alexander Gintsburg, head of the Gamaleya Centre which developed the Sputnik V vaccine, noted that there is a high probability that Russia already has its own strain.
But at the moment no one can tell if the strict arrangements help. Sport has the stuff to the virus screw. This has shown the football championship only a few weeks ago. In addition, people from around 200 nations come together in Tokyo. If there is a favorable breeding ground for new mutations, then at Olympia.
The fear of the Japanese before the games is therefore justified, and the anger that opens the organizers of many citizens and citizens is entitled. The sports festival is aligned in one place whose inhabitants want their peace. Especially in pandemeal times.
The athletes and athlete can not be done anything about it. For many of them Olympia is the only chance to show up on a big stage. The games secure their sporty existence. They now deserve how Olympia has been squeezed that attention is paid and reported on them. Even if the party will probably be Trist in Tokyo.
