Cancun, S. Ru. – The decision of the Japanese government and regulators Tokyo Olympics The ban on entry of foreigners has drawn criticism from the Olympic committees of various countries. New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom have expressed their disgust at the restrictive measures due to the pandemic and have demanded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) be refunded for the tickets.
“The spectators should get accommodation and flights. So we had to decide early or else we would cause them a lot of inconvenience. I know this is a very complex issue,” said Seiko Hashimoto, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of Tokyo 2020.
The President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, expressed his support for the Japanese, noting that “we have to make decisions that may require everyone to sacrifice.” But the sacrifices will not only be made to foreign audiences, but rather the organizers hope to win $ 800 million thanks to the ticket sale. But entry restrictions caused by the pandemic will only pay for their losses.
Olympic committees such as New Zealand described the decision to ban the crowd as “disappointing”, but it was understandable to focus efforts on the health and safety of the athletes making the trip. The United Kingdom Olympic Association said the restriction was “a great shame”. The American Paralympic Committee said that the ban is frustrating the plans of relatives who hope to travel to support the participants, noting that the epidemic has spoiled many projects.
