A recent opinion poll has shown that more than half of people in Japanese aren’t keen on the Olympic games going ahead.
Japan’s Prime Minister Suga says he never “put them Olympics first” as a recent opinion poll shows nearly 60 percent of Japanese want the Olympic Games cancelled.
The games are due to take place in less than three months but Japan recently extended its state of emergency in Tokyo until the end of this month amid a surge in COVID-19 cases.
International Olympic officials and Prime Minister Suga have insisted the $15.4 billion event will go forward in “a safe and secure” way.
Overseas spectators will be banned from attending the games, and athletes will have to abide by a strict playbook aimed to preventing coronavirus infections.
Hero coach rescues U.S. swimmer at Olympic event
U.S. Swimming coach, Andrea Fuentes, has saved the life of an American Swimmer, Anita Alvarez, at the FINA World Championships
Fuentes dived into the pool to rescue unconscious Alvarez from the bottom after her Olympic qualifying event.
In a nightmare moment, the 25-year-old didn’t return for breath after her synchronised swimming event and instead began to sink.
In a split-moment decision, Coach Fuentes jumped into the pool to rescue her, after the lifeguards failed to act.
The young Olympic medalist was unconscious and not breathing but quickly received medical attention on the edge of the pool.
She was taken to hospital and is now reportedly in ‘good health’.
Medical personnel to face trial over Maradona’s death
Eight medical personnel will stand trial for their alleged negligence in the death of football legend Diego Maradona
The 60-year-old was found dead in a rented home in Buenos Aires two years ago, after recently being discharged from hospital.
Prosecutors say there were “omissions” by the star’s caregivers, who allegedly abandoned him during his hospital stay.
Around 20 medical experts found Maradona’s treatment was rife with “deficiencies and irregularities”, in a hearing convened by Argentina’s public prosecutor last year.
A neurosurgeon and family doctor, psychiatrist and psychologist are among those who are facing charges.
They risk sentences ranging from eight to 25 years in prison but are denying any responsibility in the Argentinian player’s death.
Diego Maradona played in four FIFA World Cups for Argentina, and then went on to coach the national team during their 2010 campaign in South Africa.
In May, his famous ‘Hand of God’ jersey sold for $9.3 million.
Sporting stars lose millions amid crypto crash
Many stars and celebrities are getting caught up in the crypto market crash right now, with big names losing millions
Most recently, star Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has had $22 million wiped off his cryptocurrency portfolio.
The Jacksonville Jaguars athlete pushed his entire signing bonus into the sector when he decided to accept his wage in digital currency.
The 22-year-old partnered with a crypto tracking app, Blockfolio.
He organised for his entire wage package of $34 million to be delivered in cryptocurrency.
However, Bitcoin has currently lost more than 70 percent of its value, which has sent Lawrence’s paycheck nosediving.
His original pay packet is now worth just $12 million, leaving the Quarterback $22 million out of pocket.
Investors are selling off riskier assets because central banks are raising interest rates to combat quickening inflation.
The overall market value of crypto assets has fallen from $3 trillion to below $1 trillion.
