Tokyo to Host International Gymnastics Meet

Andy Berg

After being forced by the COVID-19 pandemic to postpone this year’s Olympic Games, Tokyo will host an international gymnastics meet next month.

All non-Japanese athletes will need to participate in a 14-day quarantine prior to competition.

The Japanese Gymnastics Association announced that the meet will include athletes from the United States, Russia, China and Japan.

The one-day event is set for Nov. 8 at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium. Around 2,000 fans will be allowed to attend, and international athletes will have their travel within the country restricted.

According to ESPN, non-Japanese athletes will be tested before they leave home and then will be tested daily while they are in Japan. The event will involve 32 gymnasts, eight from each country.

The postponed Olympics are slated to open July 23, 2021.
