Tokyo Olympic Games set to go ahead despite growing opposition

The Australia Olympic Committee has confirmed the Tokyo Olympic Games will go ahead despite mounting opposition as Japan struggles to contain a fourth wave of COVID-19. A petition to cancel the games over fears it will put lives at risk has already received more than 200,000 signatures. The AOC has said the playbook guidelines detail how participants and residents will be protected with all athletes restricted to staying within an Olympic bubble. Sports stars and staff will be offered the vaccine before leaving Australia, but it is not mandatory, and the AOC is in talks with the government about what quarantine arrangements will look like for athletes when they return.
