In the video: Israeli athletes demonstrate how to do fitness in isolation
Canada announced on Monday its intention not to appear for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics if it takes place as a series, and similar voices were heard in Australia and Poland as well. The World Olympic Committee has not yet made a final decision on the fate of the games and in the meantime, the Israeli official issued an official announcement this morning on the basis of uncertainty.
“We entered a four-week waiting period as announced by the International Olympic Committee last night,” said chairman Yigal Carmi. “International chairman Thomas Bach announced a new decision-making path, a delayed four-week course. During this period, the alternatives of the Games will be considered. Unfortunately, in light of the complex situation, we have to wait for the decision and at the same time proceed as much as we can to prepare. The next few weeks will be very challenging.
Carmi went on to write: “The Olympic Committee in Israel helps and in every way helps the athletes to manage the existing situation. We are aware and aware of the great disappointment of the athletes and identify with their feelings. The uncertainty is the greatest enemy of the athletes. However, most of the athletes in Israel train, within the limits and instructions of the Ministry of Health. They are doing their best to keep fit if the Olympic Games are to be held in Tokyo, and we note that in ten sports, Israeli athletes have not yet met this criterion, and all criterion contests have been canceled as well.
“The heads of the International Olympic Committee have recently been deciding whether to hold or postpone the Olympic Games at the scheduled time. This is an administrative decision consisting of significant and wide-ranging considerations that will cause great harm on many levels. The first and foremost consideration is the health of athletes and will lead to decision-making. “.
